Shirley, my grandfather, Gregorio Di Giacomo changed his name to James after he arrived in this country sometime after 1872. He was born 12 March 1852 in Campobassa or Castiglione, I'm not sure which and died in Louiville, Boulder Co., CO 16 Oct 1932. I've been trying to learn more about the Molise area since I'm starting a history of my Jameses.
Anyway, Gregorio married Savaria Sarah Santi (Santine)born 22 Feb 1861 in the same region as Gregorio. She died 22 Oct 1938 in Louisville, CO.
There were 11 children from this marriage. My father, Ernest DiGiacomo James was number 10.
I have more info if any of this sounds interesting or familiar.
