These are my grandparents who emigrated to the US around 1895 to 1900. Liborio Fusco, my paternal great-grandfather was believed to be part of a family of 7 from Scanno who lost touch with each other. He was born in 1850 arrived in the US in 1895 with his 2 sons Gregorio (my grandfather) and William and settled in Endicott NY and died in 1901. His wife, Maria Buttino from Compobasso, was the daughter of Michael and Rose Buttino. Maria was born in 1878, and came to the US with her parents the first time in 1886 as an 8 year old. When her father died tragically, Maria and her mother and sisters returned to Italy. Her 2nd move to America was with her husband. My maternal grandfather, Raphael Olivieri came to the US with his mother Nicholangela and his wife Maria Theresa Dellapenta who were al from Compobasso. There maybe relatives in Ontario Canada. The Olivieri's lived first in Connecticut before settling in Endicott NY. Would appreciate info. Email rocolaizzi- AT - aol.com
