Marcovicchio family from Tavenna

Posted by Florence Baker on January 23, 2005 at 03:49:37:

My grandmother was Giovanna Maria Marcovicchio was born in Tavenna Italy, province of Campobasso. She was the daughter of Michele Marcovicchio and Angela Maria D'Andera. She had four sisters, Teresa, Mary, Edna, and Josephine. She also had two brothers Joseph and Anthony. She married Pietro D'Alo on May 25, 1913 at age 18 and came to America through Ellis Island around 1919 after the war. She made her home in Balwin, Long Island, NewYork where she died October 15, 1940. They had four daughters and two sons, Mary, Florence, Claudine and Connie, James and Joseph. I'm looking for anyone from Montenero of Bisaccia with the last names of D'Alo, Marcovicchio, Pelucca and D'Andrea. Would love to meet some family still living, my mother died when I was only 12 years old.
Thanks for your help, Flo
