Bellaspica surname from Poggio Morello?

Posted by John Seymour on October 21, 2011 at 22:22:22:

Am attempting the identify the village where my great grandfather lived before immigrating to the United States in 1881. On his naturalization paper he wrote the name Napoleon Bellaspica. In my research I find the surname Bellaspica in large numbers in the village of Poggiomorello, a frazione of Sant'Omero, province of Teramo, Italy during the 1800's. He may have been of Greek origin. Family records indicate that he was born in 1845 and married Rose Angela Magri in 1872. After naturalization, he used Bellaspica as his middle name with Layare as his principal surname. Perhaps some of the Bellaspica offspring in Italy might recognize him.
