Pinnella-Suttarelli from Marsicovetere

Posted by Ann McCormick-Ganly on January 18, 2005 at 08:09:28:

Hi, I'm looking for information on my maternal grandmother's family. Her name was Maria Pennilli and she was born in Marsicovetere in 1890. She was the middle child of Giuseppe Pennilli (spelling variation of Pinnella) and Ann Suttarelli. She had 4 brothers John, Tony, Harry and Frank. They moved to the Federal Hill section of Providence, RI, USA around 1900. A couple of the brothers adopted the name Benel.
