    I am searching for data on Raffaele Purgatorio. His fathter was Luigi Purgatorio and mother was Marianna Guerreri. Raffaele was Italian Counsel in Kansas in early 20th century and is my great grandfather.

    He was married to Maria Manci or Maria Pape. Our family is no longer sure.

    Any information or help would be appreciated.

      Hi Mike,

      I see that you posted your comment a few years ago, so I hope this still reaches you. I am searching for more information on my relatives as well with the last name Guerrieri. My great grandfather was Sisto Guerrieri and his father was Agapto Guerrieri. They left Italy in 1911 for the US.
