Family Tree

Hi all! I'm trying to research my family and have not had any luck. My story is a bit complicated so I will try to explain this as easily as possible. The spelling of my family has been changed over the past 100 years.

My great grandfather was born in Sicily under the name Pietro Coppelle in the 1860's. He married Rosa Catalano who was the widow of his brother Onofrio. In the late1880's my great grandfather and grandmother moved to the U.S settling near Cleveland, OH. and bore 10 children. One of those children was my grandfather, Onofrio Coppelli (the first spelling change). Later he changed his name to Edward Cappelli. In the 1940's Edward married Roxanne Sarley who was the daughter of Rocco Sarley and Mary DeCalier (maiden name) Sarley. Sarley's where originally from a village outside of Naples.

If you have any information I would greatly appreciate.

Thank you!
