My great-grandfather was Emilio Fagnani. His father was Antonio Fagnani and his mother Philomena, probably also Fagnani (cousins??) He was born in Campobasso or Isernia or Pesco Pennataro in 1 November 1870. He came to Brazil, married and had 4 children, one of which was Philomena, my mother's mom.
He was an architect and died @39 when he fell from a horse.
I found some 10-12 Fagnanis in the Ellis Island site, from the same region, perhaps one of them was a brother/sister or close cousin.
