Re: SAPONE Genealogy
I just began researching my Italian heritage and discovered that my grandmother's maiden name was Sapone, first name Serafina.All I know about her is that she came to the Delaware/Maryland area from Teramo (Abruzzo)in 1906 as the wife of Vincenzo Cassella with one son, Costantino (according to Ellis Island Records).
She later married my grandfather, Nazzareno Cicconi of Colonella (Abruzzo) in Delaware and lived the rest of her life in Wilmington.
My mother tells me that she was orphaned in Italy and taken in by an aunt at a young age.Her marriage to Cassella was arranged and he was much older than she was.
I'd love to hear from anyone who has information on the Sapone family from Abruzzo!!
