Della Calce from Castiglione del Genovesi

Posted by Don McKennan on 04/26/03 at 10:29 PM

My grandfather, Angelo Felix Della Calce, was born in Castiglione del Genovesi on 2 February 1884. His parents were Luigi & Angeline Della Calce. I do not know Angelina's maiden name. Angelo had a brother named Giuseppe & Luigi had a brother named Antony. Except for Luigi & Angeline, all of the people mentioned here emigrated to America, Antony before 1905, Angelo in 1905, Giuseppe in 1912. Angelo Della Calce married Louisa Rivoire in 1911, probably in Boston, Mass, and settled in Jeannette PA. They had nine children: Louis, Annette, Daniel, Angelina, Madeline Grace, Ellen, William, Charles, and Doris. Angelo & Louisa moved back to Castiglione del Genovesi sometime in the 1920s and stayed there for about four years before returning to Pennsylvania. Their daughter Ellen was born in Castiglione del Genovesi; the other children were born in Pennsylvania.

Any information on the Della Calce family in Castiglione del Genovesi (especially if anybody mentioned here sounds familiar to you) would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks. Don McKennan
