  1. Ernesto Tedesco says:

    My grandfather had a cousin, Ernesto Tedesco. He had been the mayor in Sant Angelo Dei Lombardy as well as a general.

    He has a headstone in the local cemetary, but I cannot locate any information in reference to him.

    Can you help?

    • Rocco Tedesco says:

      My grandfather, Rocco Tedesco and his wife Giuseppina Verderosa, were from Sant’Angelo. They were born in the mid to late 1800s and came to the states around 1890. My father, Salvatore Tedesco visited the town in the early 1970s and also saw the reference to General Tedesco. I always understood that Tedesco was a very common name in that town, and I believe that as my dad was walking around he saw a man who resembled his older brother. They engaged in conversation and as I recall they were able to reconstruct the family ties.
