Joyce, When I read that story I knew it wasn't right. My maiden name is Montesi and my Grandfather was also born in the late 1800. The coincindence is not that he came fromAncona, but my mothers mother was born there, on the Adriatic sea. I have visited it and it is beautiful. Her maiden name was Franchescini.I have blue eyes and light brown hair. I was born very blonde. All four of my grandparents were Italian and my mothers parents Port of Entry was New Orleans. I'd love to know more about the Montesi's in this part of Italy.
