Sterlini family in Torre de' Passeri

Posted by Adriana Farella on June 16, 2008 at 22:56:41:

I'm looking for information on my grandmother, Adelia Sterlini (married Roberto Sensale), born in Torre dei Passeri around 1894. Her father's name was Spartiero Sterlini and still lived there when she came to US in 1916. I'm not sure of her mother's name, but she had an aunt named Assunta Nobile (married Palmieri) who met her when she arrived in NYC. She came back to Napoli in 1925 or 26 and lived there until she died during WWII. Any information is appreciated!

  • Sterlini Adelia Maria Domenica, year 1893 no. 54 img 38 - date of birth 11 June; father Spartiero, 25, tailor; mother Liberata Merli; address Via del Corso.
