My Grandfather, Rocco Simonelli, and my Grandmother, Lucia Concetta Bolsa Simonelli, were born in Orsara di Puglia in 1873, and were married there July 20th, 1895. Two boys were born to them in Orsara, but according to my Grandmother, they died before she came to the US in 1903 to Join Rocco, who came over in 1900 and settled in Bethlehem, PA. Rocco was a stonemason who learned the trade from Michele Bolsa, his future father-in-law.
We are trying to find out what the two boys’names were, and if they really died before Grandmother came over. We aren’t so sure. Over here in the US, there were eventually six daughters, including my own mother, Marie. The last surviving daughter, Elizabeth, died a few years ago.
Ideally, we would like to find out the boys’names, their birthdays, and indeed if they did die at a young age. What official office would I address a letter to in hopes of finding out this info?
