      I just came across your message as I was researching my husband’s family history. He and his sister are working on the family ancestry. My husband (Robert) is Daniel Albert Ferrante’s grandson. Daniel aka Donato. I can tell you that Donato and Mario Nunzio have 5 sisters and there is another brother Thomas. Which one are you the daughter of? It would be very interesting to share information. My sister in law, Regina, has been in contact with Maria Hughes the grand-daughter of Maria Ferrante (Daniel’s sister). Hope to hear back from you. ~ Patty
