    Hi, I am researching Carmine Pavia, born in Salle April 3 1874. What i would love to know is, what were his parents first names? This is what i have learned about him from his obituary. He had 6 brothers, Michaele (who came to america), Nicola, Leonardo, John, Paolo and Prospero (who all as of 1928 were still in Salle and one sister who’s name i do not know. Carmine immigrated to America (changed his name to Charles) probably around 1900ish. I’m trying to solve a family mystery and this could help greatly especially the first name of his mother. Thank you sooo much, Janet
