HI Florence Stolicny,
It has been since 2003 since we spoke on this forum. My cousin visited Valva bring back copies of birth records. My grandmother was born 7/18/1878 Marie Teresa Cozza to Michele Cozza and Clorinda ( Papio)
Cozza. The same name of your aunt. Speaking with my many cousins we all thought her name was Teresa Maria and never where told anything different from her nine childern, which leads us to believe they did not know her names where switched.
Grandfather was Francesco Antonio Spiotta born Valva 1867 to Antonio and Porzia (Perna) Spiotta. Grandfather came to America 1885/86 , returned to Valva and married 2/23 1902. Shortly afterwards coming back to America and settling in Batavia,NY.
