Caroprese/o Caroprete from Craco
Am looking for any info on my grandmother's background. Her name was Apollonia Caropreso or Caroprese or Caropreto and she was from Craco, born 1884. Her mother died, and she went to live with an aunt and uncle in Potenza; I believe she was an only child. Her father arranged her marriage to my grandfather, Giovanni Bentivenga (from San Chirico Raparo). They all ended up in Philadelphia, where her father also remarried, I think, and had other children.
