Looking for information on Maria Raia from Lercara Friddi. She was married to Antonio Sammartano. They had 5 children: Antonio, Matteo, Giuseppe, Filippina, and Josephine. They came to New York about 1893. Any of this sound familiar?

My grandfather Gaspare Raia is from this town and was born in 1892. He came to NY in 1904. Later he settled on Staten Island. His parents were Antonino and Anna.

I'm sorry, that doesn't ring a bell. The only information I have is the information I provided initially. I know some more of Maria Raia's descendents, but I don't know anything about her parents or siblings.

my father Anthony Raia was born in Lercara Friddi and his father Antonino Raia married Concetta Loforte. Dad came to Brooklyn in 1917. My grandfather Antonino's brother came to America and all contact was lost. His name may have been Giuseppi (according to my father). Any info on this???
