My great-grandmother's name was Angelina Colacci. Although I am not posivitive of where she was from, there is some indication to lead me to Sant'Elia a Pisani in what was then Abruzzi, but is now Molise. She married a Donato Mancini in Italy and one son was born to them in Italy. After immigrating to the U.S. they had a daughter - my grandmother and her name was Madalena

I have Colavito families from Bari. My husband's grandfather was Michael Colavito, born 6/19/1904 in Bari (married to Carmela Taurosa). His father was Vito Colavito, born 8/28/1879 Grummo Appula, Bari and his mother was Domenica Ratognia (?), also born in Bari. Vito's parents were Michael Colavito and Vincenza Aucelli. Does this sound like anything you have?

Surnames: Quarantiello, Cioffi

My great grandparents came from Benvento Province. There names were Guiseppe Quarantiello and Rose (Cioffi) Quarantiello. They came her to Boston, I believe in the early 1910's. They came directly to Boston and landed on Atlantic Ave. I believe they had seven children. 6 boys, 1 girl.

Four of the boys died while infants while in Italy. Three children were born here. My grandfather Biagio, his brother Domenic who was a four years older and a sister Mary who was a couple of years older.

My grandfather grew up on Charter St in the North End of Boston before moving to Revere, Massachusetts. Domenic died at age 19 years old. My grandfather passed away in 1994 and my Aunt Mary passed away in 1999.

If you have any additional information I would be interested.

Joe - this is the only info that I have. My grandfather Giovanni Quarantello was born in Bonea Benevento. His parents were Clemente Quarantello and Guilia Luciano. He had at least one brother who emmigrated to Canada -- somewhere near Gaspe Bay. I believe his name was James. My grandfather lived in a small town in Holley, NY and we know nother else about the family except our immediate family. I have written to Bonea, but they have only sent a copy of my grandfather's birth certificate. I would love to have more information. I believe that my grandfather's brother changed his last name to Queen when he moved to Canada.
