Relatively new info about Giuseppe Amadio. He was born in or around Rome about 1876. His father was Eugenio Amadio and his mother was Rosa Corradino (presumably also from Rome). In the early 1900s he was in the US working as a firefighter on the steamships. In Jan. 1904, while living on Columbia St. in Brooklyn, NY, he married Gracie (Grazia) Pacelli and had a child (my grandfather) Eugene Amadio in 1905. They lived on Harrison St. (now Kane I believe) in Brooklyn, NY. We're not sure what happened to her, but he returned to Italy shortly after Eugene's birth. Any connections?
