My great grandmother was Teresa Doti. She was born on November 27, 1862. She originally came from Sasso di Castalda, Potenza, Basilicata, Italy. She married a Laurino and they emigrated to the U.S. in the 1880's. Shortly afterward, they changed the Laurino name to Lorraine. They settled in Herkimer, NY and had 8 children. After 1920, my great grandparents and 3 of their children moved to the San Joaquin, CA area.
Still looking for more information and would love to find a living connection.
