I am a Capelli from Colorado *although I no longer carry the last name* I don't know a whole lot about my family, other than my grandfather was named August and he had a brother named Stephen. Their father came from Italy, but that's all I know *a common theme here* From what I've heard, my grandfather stole Stephen's half of their inheritance and since then, that side of the family refuses to have anything to do with my side. I do know the other side lives on the East coast...but I know almost nothing else.
If this sounds even VAGUELY familiar, I'd love to hear from you. Like I said, I no longer carry the name because it has such a negative connotation for me, although I'm proud of my Italian heritage.
