Hello Paul Cavaliere! I just located my grandfather's naturalization papers from 1911. They state that his name was Guiseppe Cavalier (he dropped the last e) and that he was born in Gessopalena, Chieta, Abruzzo Italy, just as your Cavalieres were. Not only that, but he settled in the Philadelphia area as well, first in the city and then in Newtown Square, PA., about 25 miles West of the city.Because of all those similarities, I'm betting that your Fillipo and my Guiseppe were relatives of some sort, from the same town.(Uncles, Nephews, Cousins, etc.?) I also have more info about Guiseppe's father as well, who lived in Philadelphia from about 1883 until his death in 1913. I'm trying to gather enough info about the Cavaliere family so I can make the trip to Gessopalina and see how far back I can trace the family. If you have acquired any more details about your Cavalieres, or want the rest of my info, please contact me at: Ronalddell@msn.com. Thanks! Roberta Dell.
