Looking for Gradone in Castelvetere

Posted by Brian Miller on December 22, 2005 at 17:00:20:

Hello!
I just recently discovered where my great-grandfather came from prior to moving to the US. His name was Michael Benedict Gradone, born about 1895 although his Ellis Island record shows his name as Michaelangelo. He came from Castelvetere, and immigrated to Massachusetts about 1910. He married Josephine D'Annunzio in Boston, although from what I understand it was a prearranged marriage through family connections in Castelvetere.
If anyone has any ideas or suggestions on where I could find information on the Gradone family of this area it would be greatly appreciated!
