    My fraternal grandfather Guy Mustalo (Gaetano Mastellone) was born around 1870 somewhere in Naples, but the only clue that I had was he was born in St. Mary’s. I have been unable to find any such village or town and the closest sounding village was Santa Maria la Carita. His father was Rafaelle Mastellone and his mother was Maria Joseph ??. I have no idea if I’m on the right track, but think this might be a possibility of where my ancestor was born. Thank you so much if you are able to help in any kind of way.
