My grandmother's (Jean Martini born in Utica 7/22/1928) mother was Angela/(Angeline(a)) Massa born in Ausonia in about 1901. She passed away in Utica, NY 6/17/1936.
She married Mario Martini in Utica 6/11/1925.
My grandmother told me Angela came to NY in 1920 (the record she has says 6/4/1920).
According to the marriage record I found between Mario & Angela it lists her father as "Antrea/Andrea Massa" and mother as "Gactaria Garitillo(a)"

According to my grandmother Angela had two sisters:
-Maria (Mary Grace) Grazia Massa born 10/26/1885 in Ausonia and came to Utica, NY in about 1901. Maria married Antonio Graniero.

-Agatha (Agata) Massa born 7/26/1897 in Ausonia and came to Utica in about 1935 (from the records I found here on Ancestry)
Agatha married Mario Massa .

I cannot find much information on Angela, Agatha, and Maria's parents or any history in Utica. If anyone has any information I would appreciate it!
Thank you!
