The reference to Ellis Island is for Maria Angela De Litta who arrived in NY in 1921. She is the younger sister of my grandfather, Antonio De Litta (Delitto) and Vincenzo De Litta is their father. Their mother was Maria Grazia (Colella)De Litta. Maria was born May 15, 1898 in Piedimonte, San Germano and my grandfather was born September 18, 1891 also in Piedimonte San Germano.
One family story is Vincenzo and Maria were taken prisoner during WW II and sent to a concentration camp. We believe there is some sort of plaque mentioning this in Cassino? The nephew of Maria Grazia, Erasmo Colella and his wife Antoinette went to Italy during the 1960s and reported this.
I would love to have help translating a letter to the De Litta family in Cassino and Piedimonte.
