    Seeking information on living or deceased members of the Zotti family. Specifically, those related to Raffaelle/Raffaelo Zotti, born 1882 and his wife Mary Zotti (nee Fusco), Raffaelle and Mary immigrated to the United States (lived in Summit, NJ) and later had 3 sons, Carmen, Adam, and Tony (Anthony). Mary Fusco’s parents were named Antonio and Gigonda Fusco (lived in New Providence, NJ with three other children – Libro, Christina, and Elizabeth).
    Appreciate any help with any information.

      I was born in Summit. There were many who went to Summit and closeby areas from Vitulano and the other towns on this mountain. They also went to New Haven CT. My relatives were also in New Providence. The name Zotti is probably related to Zottone, one of the first Longobard rulers of Benevento.
