Della Pesca, Bruno, Pisano in Avellino
My father was born in Avellino in 1907 and came to the U.S. in 1914. His name was Russell Della Pesca and his father's name was Luigi Della Pesca. His mother died giving birth to his younger brother Raimondo and he and my father stayed with her mother while their father came to the states in 1912. We are not sure but believe that her last name is either Bruno or Pisano(?) which is the name my father adopted in 1940. We are hoping someone can help us determine the correct names and if there are any relatives in italy. Any help would be appreciated. Thank You.
