    My grandfather was born in Torrice on October 30,1879. That is all we know. On his death certificate his parents were listed as James and Francesca Testani. That is probably a guess as he never really spoke of his early life. All we know is that he was raised by an aunt. His name was Giuseppe Testani. Any information would be appreciated as I have hit a wall in my research
