My uncle, Alfredo FIORAVANTI, born in Civitella del Tronto in 1894, son of Emidio FIORAVANTI and Francesca PARLAFANTI, emigrated to the USA ca 1908, and lived in Chicago, Illinois with the family of Santo FONTECCHIO. He later married Santo's daughter, Rena. FONTECCHIO appears in the name distribution map as being one from Abruzzo. Santo was born in 1873, and emigrated to the USA in 1899. His wife's name was Christina. In the US censuses, the children's names were Americanized. I cannot find Santo's name in the Ellis Island site. If anyone is researching FONTECCHIO, I can give you the FIORAVANTI info.
