Hello to all,
I am researching my Grandmother :)and her family. Her name was Caterina I am just not sure of this first name. Her Father's (my great grandfather), name was carmin,her mother's(my great grandmother), name may have been Madellan. they lived in Spoltore. Great Grandpa Vadini was a Boss on a large farm. My Grandma came to America in 1912 or 1913 to be with her husband Dominic Pantaleone. He was living and working in Gary, Indiana at this time.
My Cousin's mother, Maria Pantaleone(now deceased),told her that grandma moved to Naples, with her children and family members that would come with her, before coming to America. She also mentioned a Volcano that had erupted while grandma was in Naples.One of my Uncles died because of this. He would have been an uncle to me, but do not know his name.
Grandma then brought her children Maria and Michael with her to America. I was also told that one child ( a girl) had to be left behind for reasons unknown.Grandma had a brother named Anthony that came to America but we don't know if they traveled together.I only wish that I could find out more about them and if what I mentioned is true....

Any information would be so helpful.. :)

Thank you so very much for reading my post. If anyone could help me with this I would very much appreciate it :)

Have A Great Day or Evening

Angie
