Subject:   VILLONE and VICCARO

Looking for family members still living in Italy. My grandparents originally came from Cirigliano and San Mauro Forte, provincia di Matera. Vincenzo (born 1876) and his brother Filipo Villone, sons of Giuseppe Villone and Elisena Meloni. Vincenzo was born in Cirigliano and was married to Maria Domenica Viccaro, figlia di Leonardo, figlio di Maurantonio Viccaro in San Mauro. Filipo married Marie Donata Colucci from San Mauro. Further back, we are descended from Berardino Villone from Armento. We had a cousin, Giovanni Villone who was the parish priest. Also related to Mazza, Salvatore who is still living in San Mauro. Both of the Villone brothers settled in Rochester, New York in the early 1900's, but we also have Medico Giuseppe Villone died 1924, figlio di Rosa Fanelli, who settled in Scranton, Pennsylvania. I understand there are still Villone families in Cirigliano, Armento and Bari that we are related to. I would love to correspond with anyone with a connection to these families and can help me discover more about my family. Thank you- Marie (Mariantonia)
