My wife's grandmother, Mary Farone, was born in Waterford, NY in 1913. Her father Alessandro Farone came before 1910 from the Provincia di Ancona region on the east coast of Italy (The Marches). The Ellis Island entry for his wife and two children stated their place of residence as Vallone, Ancona. She once related a story of going to New Haven, CT with a friend and finding a relative (also a Farone) of her father's there. The family has generally remained in the Waterford, NY area but most descendants have different surnames except for the descendants of Alessandro's son Tilio (Attilio).
