Thanks for Luigi's death record and the very helpful Dondero information of your previous post.

While looking for Wallingford Donderos in Ellis Island records I came upon Francesco Dondero, age 23, nationality Italian, born Wallingford CT, arr NY 28 Jul 1924 with SS Guilo Cesar out of Genova, resident of Wallingford , mother Ceresa(sic) ROVENGO, Moconesi, brother Guiseppe Dondero, Wallingford.

I would be interested in obtaining a copy of your Rose Dondero photo. I have no Dondero photos at all. I do have current photos of Luigi Dondero's Wallingford farmstead (the "big house" and the "small house" next door that was occupied by Luigi's sons Stephen and Louis, plus photos of the Dondero gravestones in Holy Trinity Cemetery. If you think they would be interesting to you please suggest how we can share our images.

My Uncle Henry lives next door to the "small house" and recalls that the Meriden, Wallingford and Cheshire Donderos were all cousins ("their fathers were Italian-born brothers")
