I happened to be searching this site and came upon your message about the Capello name. My maiden name was Capello and my grandparents lived in Granville, IL (Bureau County) which you mentioned in your post. I don't know if there is a connection. Perhaps a cousin or something.

My great grandfather was John Capello, born in Salto Canavese, Italy on January 26, 1852 and died February 21, 1914 (I assume in Granville, IL where they lived). He was married to Maria Cecilia Vercellino who was born in 1854 in Salto Canavese, Italy and died in Spring Valley, IL in 1897. They had seven children: John, Jr. (my grandfather), Joseph who died of typhoid at 13, Annie who died in the late 1980's or early 1990's, Frank born 3-1-1892 died 9-1973, Christina, Rosie and Peter a suicide.

My grandfather John Capello was born in Coal City, IL on 11-2-1884. He died March 17, 1961 in Spring Valley, IL. He is buried in Granville Cemetary. He was married to Eunice Briddick, born 6-12-1892 (I think in Indiana - still looking into that) and died June 13, 1966 in Spring Valley. She is also buried in Granville Cemetary. They had four children: Joseph (my father) born 2-21-1912 died 6-27-1990, Esther born 10-31-1914, Laverne born 5-29-1915 died 3-20-73, and Laura born 11-27-1916.

My father Joseph married my mother Adeline DeGroot born 8-14-1912 who is 88 years old. They married in May of 1933. They had three children Sally, born 10-1-1936, Joan (that's me) born 5-15-39 and John born 4-7-42.

My brother is the last Capello in our family as he had no children.

At this point I'm trying to find out where my great grandfather immigrated from and where they landed in the US.

Have you any new info on your family?
