Pellecchia-Ascolese family from Montoro

Posted by vincent r. pellecchio on October 11, 2018 at 00:31:12:

My father came to the US in 1906 with his parents, Ralph (english version) and Antoinette Ascolese. Workers at Ellis Island changed last name to Pellecchio making the A at the end an O. Has stayed that way ever since. Looking to find some family history. Any help would be appreciated.
