There were 21 Spataro familys that immigrated to this
country through Ellis Island. My family (the Spataro Amianti Family)came
to this country in 1917 from Palermo, Sicily. My mother's family The Salvatore Addotta immigrated
from Partinico, Sicily about the same time. They settled in the midwestern town of Rockford, IL.

My grandfather's name on my mother's side was Gaspare Espano Addotta and my grandmother name was Frances Guido (Addotta. My paternal grandfather's
name was Joseph Angelo Spataro, and my grandmother's name was Rose. They all lived and died in Rockford, Il. with exception of my mother Grace Ella Addotta and Ray Spataro.

The Addottas raised 5 children Rose, Victor, Grace, Frank, and Mary. The Spataro's children were Peter, Raymond, Phillip, Sam, Mary, 'FRANK SPATARO'(OLDEST) and Joseph my father.

Today there is myself and my brother Angelo Spataro and host of other Spataro's living all across the US. Some 1200 families listed as head of household. Have you looked on the internet for the Ellis Island Wall of honor. they have finally
listed the names and you will be able to find the Spataro listed 21 times.

Best of luck
Antonio Spataro

I came across your message, and noticed the Spataro family in Rockford. My mom is from Rockford and my grandparents Peter J Spataro and Serafina (Fucha) Spataro still live there. I am wondering if you are my mother's cousin. So, I believe, your Uncle Pete is my Grandpa. (And your cousin Pete, my mom's brother, would be my Uncle Pete). Did I get this right????? Look forward to hearing from you!

reply--It sounds like you got it right

thanks for getting in touch. My Uncle Pete was a painter. He had numerous
brothers, and I believe most have past on. There was Phillip, who I believe just past away just few years ago,
there was my father Joseph, and his other brothers, Sam, Raymond, and Frank. My granmothers, name was
Rose Spataro, and her husbands name was Angelo. I forgot there was a sister Mary Spataro. I think that about sums
up my paternal family. My father past away July 31st, 1979 at the age of 67.

My fathers family lived at 1247 Corbin Street on the Southside of Rockford. They attended St. Anthony's Church close by.
One thing I do miss is the good Italian food and the great pasta, and sugo.
Actually, I didn't live with either of my folks to very long. My mother and father were dysfunctional so me and my brother
Angelo spent most of our lives in Orphanges throughout the midwest. My brother finished his time at St. Vincent's orphanage when
he graduated from the 8th grade. He left and got a job at the Steak and Shake on Kishwaukee St. He got married when he was 15 had two children
and was divorced by the time he was 18. Meanwhile, I was doing time at Illinois Soldiers and Sailors Children's School in Normal, Ill. I stayed there
until I graduated from high school. I went into the Marines immediately upon graduation and spent 4 years in the military.

I still have relations in Rockford on both my father's and mother's side. Including you. I should you know you or maybe you are either younger or older than me.

My father married Grace Addotta. They had a fairly large family. Most are dead. My only living Aunt by birth is Mary Flowerette. She is staying at a rest home in

Let me hear from you again and tell me about yourself. Maybe we can share some war stories.

Later Regards Cuz.
