I am researching the DiPoccio name (my great-grandfather) from Pizzoferrato and the DiNardo name (my great-grandmother) from Gamberale:see below.
Because they died so soon after arriving in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh, there is little that anyone in Pgh. would remember about them.
However, I've uncovered a ship manifest that lists Ervico DiPoccio, who came to the US in 1910 from Pizzoferrato.
He arrived with 4 other young men, one which is Alfonso Sammrtino.
The following is a list of the young men and who they were coming to stay with at 427 1/2 Bouquet St., Oakland section of Pittsburgh:
Giovanni DiFelice: to his father Carmillo DiFelice
Antonio Palmieri: to his brother-in-law Giovinni DiMatteo
Domenico DiMatteo: to his brother-in-law ?Palmieri
Alfonso Sammartino: to his brother-in-law Domenico Pasquarilla
Ervico DiPoccio: to his uncle Carmello DiFelice
Any information would be so greatly appreciated.
My great-grandmother, Sabia DiNardo (1874-1920) was from Gamberale. She married Guiseppe DiPoccio (1873-1915). I was always told he was from Pizzoferrato. They had (at least) 3 children, Nicola, Antonio born around 1910 (known in Pittsburgh as Anthony DePocco), and Emilia born in 1912, my grandmother, now Mary Bruno. The children were all born in Pizzoferrato. Nicola returned to Pizzoferrato and later married and raised a family.
Nicola and his first wife had children Giuseppe, Giovanni, Angela, and Antonio.
Nicola and his second wife Rosa had children:
Palermrindo, Domenico and Lina.
My great-grandmother and the children came to the US in 1915 and settled in the Oakland section of Pittsburgh to join my great-grandfather who was already here. They first lived on Bouquet St. in Pittsburgh,PA.
When my ggrandfather died, my ggrandmother later married Carmine Iandiorio and had a son, Albert (Iandiorio) Andiorio, also from Pittsburgh.
