    I recently learned my three times great grandfather Gregorio D’Elia was born in Sicignano in 1818. He may have spent some of his early childhood in Naples and we know he fought with Francesco Stocco during the unification war. We also know of at least one son Achille who either stayed in Sicignano or went to Serrastretta where my grandfather Gregorio D’Elia was born in 1890. Looking for any help to try and put the pieces together.
