Bonetti from Montemarano

Posted by Anthony J. DiFiore on August 22, 2008 at 05:19:16:

Pasquale Bonetti, my grandfather, came from Montemarano to the USA. So did his cousins Giovanni and Davide Bonetti. They settled in Brooklyn, N.Y. Pasquale was a tailor and had his shop on St. Johns Place off Utica Ave., Brooklyn. Pasquale married Bice (Bicetta) Giustizia. They had a daughter, Elisa, my mother. She married Settimeo DiFiore, my father.

The Giustizia family were from Collepietro, province of L'Aquila, Abruzzi. Francesco Giustizia came to America with eight of his nine children and settled in Brooklyn, New York, USA.

My other grandfather, Antonio DiFiore came to America in 1896 from somewhere in Campania, Italy. He too settled in Brooklyn, NY.
I welcome any information. Thank You.
