Subject: Looking for information on the Casazza family of Sackett Street in Brooklyn

I am trying to track down more information on my great grandfather Pasquale Casazza, who was born in Genoa on 16 Mar 1866 and arrived in the U.S. in 1875 at age 9. He married my great grandmother Caterina/Catherine/Katy, born 10 Dec 1864 in Genoa, at age 22. They eventually settled on Sackett Street in Brooklyn, where they bought a home. They had 6 children--Joseph (my grandfather), Alfred, Teresa, Stephen, Ida, Beatrice. They also lived with an older woman, Marie Casazza (b 1840), who I assume is Pasquale's mother.
Any information you have would be helpful, thanks!
