Re: DEROSA, DIONISIO, SPANO, LATE 1800'S-1900'S, ITALY TO NY
Carol, I have nothing specific on that family, but I do have a Rocco DeRosa b 1911 in Bari Italy. His father was Pasquale DeRosa. They settled in Akron Ohio. Pasquale's fathers name was Rocco which is a name you listed so there may be some connection. Pasquale came via Ellis Island with his brother in law - last name Rivello. They settled in Youngstown, OH. Hope this helps.
