Longino in Ravenna -- early 1700s

Post by slaann » 19 May 2008, 03:40

I'm looking for information on an ancestor who came to America in about 1751.

John Thomas (Giovanni Tomas) Longino
b. 1737 in Ravenna
d. 1796 in Surry Co, North Carolina, USA

The story is that his father was executed as a heretic during the Holy Inquisition, and John Thomas escaped, either went to Switzerland, the Palatinate or England and then to America.

I would love to have any information about his parents (no one seems to have a clue who they were), his immigration info, anything before he came to America, or advice on how I might find this information.

Thanks!
