Re: Buccigrossi from Pescocostanza to Western PA
My father's mother was Martha Buccigrossi (DOB 1889 in Pescocostanza, Italy), her father was Domenic Buccigrossi (DOB 1856 Pescocostanda, L'aquila, Abruzzo, Italy), and his father was Francesco Buccigrossi (DOB approx 1835, Pescocostanza, Italy). Domenic immigrated in 1890 with wife Flora Stella (DOB 1860) and daughter Martha (my grandmother) and they settled in the Italian section of Pittsburg. Later, Flora and Domenic had another daughter, Frances (DOB 1897 PA). Martha married Luigi (Louis) Rainaldi (DOB 1882, Pescocostanza) and they settled with her family in Rochester, PA, and later, Ambridge, PA. Francis married a man last name Cuifo, had a daughter Gloria, and moved from Beaver CO. PA to New York.
Any with information would be welcome. Domenic returned to Italy for visit in 1920's and I have good information and picture from his passport application.
