Have just joined the tree shaking effort. Believe I had a great grandmother, either adele rapetti or ripetti. she married joseph (giuseppe) follini. Joseph came from piacenza http://www.comune.piacenza.it
in 1890. She died young around 1904 after giving birth to 3 sons and a daughter: john-feb 10, 1895, nancy est 1898, alfred (freddie) feb 21, 1899 and peter jul 26, 1902 (my grandfather).
