You all are to cool. I can see where this can get addicting. My Grandfater, anthony Cherry was born in the U.S . His parents, My Great grand parents returned to Italy, and I think with my Grandfather. Then sent him back to the U.S with other relatives when he was 4 or 5, and they stayed back in Italy..

Maria, why the ?? for Orsara? And yes my Grandfather married in the U.S. Perhaps at St. Lucy's church in Philadelphia where my Father was baptized.
