My grandfather's name was Filippo Abate.

His older brother, Benedetto Abate, was born in 1859 in Piazza Armerina, Sicily and died in New York in 1941.
Bnedetto emigrated to New York around 1920. He married Nunzia (Calandra?) and they had several children: Filippo, Concettina(Connie), Giuseppe, Salvatore, Carmela, Francesco, Nancy.
Connie married Louis Matrone and they had a son in 1952/3 and named him Philip Louis Matrone.
