I don't have any information about your grandfather, but we may be related. The way my original last name was Silvestri, but was changed to Silvestro. My Greatgrandfather (Anthony Silvestri) and his brother, Denny Silvestri, came from a little town in the mountains not far from Naples. I don't know the name of the town, just that it is extrememly long, and very small! Anthony married a woman named Adeline. They would have come over here in the early 1900's. Anthony had my grandfather, Rosario Silvestro, and he had my father Ross Silvestro. I grew up only 1 hour away from Cleveland Ohio, in Canton, Ohio. Denny Silvestri stayed in Pennsylvania and Anthony came to Canton, Ohio. That is pretty much all I know, we are trying to find out if we have any relatives we do not know about (which I am sure we do!). Anthony passed away when my father was only 16, so we do not have alot of information to go on.
Hope to hear from you soon.
Thank You,
