Borio Family Genealogy Forum
My grandmother's maiden name is Borio. Her father was Girolamo, possibly Giovanni Girolamo, Borio, born June 18, 1888. I've been told that the original surname was Bori, but to distinguish Girolamo from his cousin (?), the "o" was added. After immigration to the United States from a town called Gualdo Tadino, Italy, Girolamo changed his name to Jerome Borio where he first settled and mined in Export, Pennsylvania. He then sent for his wife, Adele, my grandmother's mother. Adele Panunzi, or Pannunzi, was born November 17, 1888. Girolamo and Adele married in 1910. I have bits and pieces of information from my grandmother. Girolamo's mother's name was Marietta. Adele's father's name was Pietro, her mother's name was Letizia, for whom my grandmother was named after, and a brother named Angelino. Girolamo and Adele had 5 children (in no particular order), Letizia (my grandmother), Olga, Angelo, Peter, and Jules, with Letizia and Jules the only remaining children. I believe the last residence and final resting place of both Jerome and Adele is Benld, Illinois, Macoupin County. I am trying to research this side of my family. If any of this sounds even the slightest bit familiar, please respond. Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you in advance for any information offered.
