We have a great-grandmother, Maria Antoinette Ricuita (1872-1943), whose parents were Ralph Ricchuitti and Maria Farina. Antoinette married Ralfaele Giovanni Fracasse(i). Giovanni's parents were Filomena Dorando and Rafaele Fracassi. They were from the City of Limosano in the District of Campobaso in Italy. They settled in NYC and then the Hudson Valley. Antoinette had at least one brother, Ralph. Giovanni(John)had at least one brother, Giocinto(George) and one sister, Josephine, who married a Dedollito. Antoinette and John had ten children that we know of: Joseph, Pia(Pera or Ruby), Nicholas(died in his teens), Mildred(Millie), Frank (entertainer, played ukelele), James(Sailor White-a boxer), John(Whitey), Elvira(Evera or Eva), Alfred (Al White) and Florence. We are trying searching for other relatives,documents...birth and death certificates, marriage certificates, etc. as well as any living relatives that can add to our history. Ricchuitti had many different spellings depending on the source and there are several different spellings for Fracasse also. Thanks, Pat
