We have record that Rosa Antrilli was escorted by her father to America from Torricella Peligna to marry Luigi Fante (changed to Fanto by US immigration)because his first wife had died. They married 8 May 1910.
Rosa and Luigi are my great grand parents. We know that Rosa's parents were Pietro Antrilli and Brigada Di Luizio. We do not have dates for their births or pedigree information on their parents and further ancenstry. We know that Rosa had two brothers that died in WWI, Donato and Guisepe. We were thrilled to see their names on the monument photo! Thank you to whomever posted it. We hope this leads to further information so we can complete our pedigree charts.
We do not have names for Luigi Fante's ancenstry, but assume he was from this town or region because he wrote back to arrange for his second marriage. If anyone has information on his ancestry (including his first marriage as well), that would be so appreciated!
Please feel free to contact us for any information needed to assist in this effort. Thank you! maria
