Many Possible Surnames from Vastogirardi

Posted by Tracy Galentine on January 19, 2006 at 05:56:03:

I am researching my husband's maternal line and have just received a copy of his gg-grandmother's death certificate from Ohio. It lists her maiden name as Carmosino. In searching for information on this surname, I turned up this site and the info about some of the surnames from Vastogirardi. While my husband's ancestor's changed their names upon immigrating to the states, we have had our suspicions as to what they originally were.

COOK = CICCIO or DI CICCIO who married a DI BENEDETTO
ROSS = ROSSI or a much longer name. From the site, I saw CECCAROSSI.
LOMBARD = LOMBARDI (this is a positive)

The CARMOSINO link is: Anna CARMOSINO (2/1/1837 Italy - 4/25/1915 Columbus, OH) d/o Emanuel and ?. md ? ROSS (see above). They had the following known children:

1. Raffaela Lucia "Lucy" (13 Jan 1881(1877?) Italy - 11 Oct 1958 Columbus, OH) md. Carmine LOMBARDI aka James LOMBARD (1872 Italy - Aft. 1/1920 Columbus, OH) in 1898.
2. Elizabeth (no other info)
3. Charles (9/1869 Italy - Aft 4/1915)

The COOK link is: Joseph COOK (aka Guiseppe DI CICCIO?) (6/1875 Italy - Aft 4/1945) md Rosa DI BENEDETTO (11/1883 Italy - Aft. 4/1930) in 1883. d/o John DI BENEDETTO aka BENEDETTI (7/1860 Italy - Aft 4/1910) & "Melia" (3/1859 Italy - Aft 4/1910).

Any assistance that someone may provide would be immensely appreciated!
