Michele Caschetta, Melfi (Potenza)
Michele Caschetta married Christina Moccia circa 1880. Family story says he traveled back and forth between Italy and South America to work as a gaucho. Christina and five children (by this time young adults)emigrated to US in early 1900s one or two at a time. Children's names were: Carmella, Antonio, Grazia, Alessandro, Paolina. Michele died before he could emigrate. I have no facts about whether he is buried in So. America or in Italy. Does anyone connect with Michele Caschetta? Does anyone have any information about Italians leaving Italy and working in South America for a period and then returning? Thank you.
