The Rigoglioso's of Garfield, N.J. Updated April 25, 2001
About Our Family Research
As far as we know the Rigoglioso family originated in Modeneao on th island of Scicily, Italy. My grandparents, James Rigoglioso and Anna Benanti were married and came to the U.S. in the early 1900's. They settled in Garfield, NJ, where they raised seven children. The oldest was my father Charlie(10 children), followed by Marie, Bob(4 children), Rosie(4 chilren), Vincent, Rita(3 children) and Ronnie(3 chidren). Many of the children, now have chilren, making them 4th generation from Italian immigrants.
