    My grandmother was Nocenza Costanzo Grossi
    My grandfather was Dominico Grossi
    First, I was told by a cousin that my great grandfather Costanzo was a physician and disowned his daughter when she married Dominico Grossi at age 15. Then I was told by another cousin that Dominico was the son of a physician who resided in a neighboring town. The Grossis were unhappy that he was marrying beneath his station. Help….. How did the Grossis come to Guardia & when?
