In Reply to: Esposito Surname by Jo Ann Madden of 333

The Dominic Esposito that I'm researaching came to the US in 1897 at age 17. He worked in the coal mines and married Francesca Venticinque whose father was Angelo Valenti. They had four boys - Pasquale, Albert, Frank, and Angelo. Eventually they moved to Des Moines, Iowa where Dominic's younger brother had a farm. By this time the family name was Sposeto. Dominic Sposeto was murdered on July 22, 1919 while hauling vegetables to market. It is believed he received one of those famous letters with the black hand letting him know his days were numbered.

His brother Frank married Victoria Iaquinta and they had 10 children. All of them survived. A couple are still living.

Ciao!
Sherry
