I am researching for a friend. Please forgive any spelling mistakes.
His maternal grandparents were Peter Starvaggi & Maria MERLO(MERLOT?)_CUCUZZA of Campagnia Sicily. Maria had 22 children, but only 5 lived. They were born in Akron, Summit County, Ohio. They were Mary, Fabina, Belle Angelina (Angie), Pauline & Charles. Fabina married Patrick DeCASTRO in Akron. They had 4 children.
Peter's parents were: Carmelo & Mary RUGERRO_CUCUZZA.
Maria's parents were Paul & Fabronia LAMBO(LEMBO?)_MERLO(MERLOT?).
The CUCUZZAs were citrus farmers in Sicily.
Patrick DeCASTRO's father was William DeCASTRO. William's mother's maiden name was MORGAN.
Any assistance in finding these families would be much appreciated.
