Hi Rich, My name is Theresa Martino Gibson. My paternal grandmother was Teresa Cusano married to Michelangelo Martino from Faicchio Benevento and lived in New Haven in 1906 where my father Joseph was born. My grandmother had two sisters, Carmella & Maria Cusano. They both married two Onofrio brothers. One of the Onofrio sons was Chief of Police Michael Onofrio in West Haven for many years. The all have since passed, I was wondering if you have any information on the Cusano name i/e My great grand mother & great great grandmothers' maiden names. I have cousins in Faicchio I would like to be in touch with. I know my father's sister Immaculata married Raffaelli Orefice from Bristol, Ct . He moved to Faicchio after the war and never returned. Appreciate any information you may have. , Thank you, Theresa (Terri Gibson) P. S. My DNA results say 83% Italian/Greek & 14% Caucus/ with a trace of Irish. Wonder if it's true, because both parents and grandparentswere full blooded Italians.
