We are most definitely related. Do you know any information about Tony’s parents and/or brothers and sisters? I am trying to fill in all the gaps. I will tell you what I know.
Felice (Felix) Capanna was born May 8, 1884 in Roccacaramanico, Italy. He had a brother named Dionino (Tony) Capanna who was born October 11, 1891, not sure where. I am currently not aware of any other brothers and sisters. I believe that Felice (and I guess Dionino) came to the U.S. when Felice was around 30. On his death certificate it said that he had lived in Colorado (where he died) for 40 years. At the time of his death he was 72.
Felice’s dad was named Vincenzo Capanna. He was born in 1857. His mom was Maria Luisa Massarotti. She was born April 20, 1850.
Vincenzo’s parents were named Felice Capanna and Pascouch Pasquale.
Maria’s parents were named Camillo Massarotti and Bridgetta (?).
Felice married Maria Guiseppi Carleo on January 17, 1915 in Pueblo Colorado. Maria was born March 19, 1885 in Petina, Italy. Maria and Felice had seven children: Joseph born March 5, 1914 (my grandfather), Natilena born 1903, Mary Louise born 1904, James born November 27, 1906, Mary Priscilla born March 3, 1908, Leonard born March 1, 1910 and Josephine born January 20, 1912. Maria Giuseppi died March 19, 1914 due to complications resulting from childbirth (Joseph). At that point, Felice married a woman named Luisa Morrone on January 17, 1915 in Pueblo, Colorado.
Joseph married Mary Jane Demattia and had Eileen, Robert, Deborah, Kathleen and Richard. Eileen is my mother.
Natilena married Paul DiCamillo. That is all I know there.
Mary Louise married Joe Marone. That is all I know there.
James died February 1976. That is all I know there.
Mary Priscilla married Joseph DeJulio and had Mary Jo Ann, Darlene Mae, William Rocco, Emily Jean and Priscilla Jane. Mary Jo Ann married someone named Alcorn and had Kristina Alcorn and Jeffrey Alcorn. Darlene married Paul Vondy. William married someone and had Joseph, Gina, Tina, Dawn and Jared. Emily married someone named Mathis. Priscilla married someone named Chuck Lehman.
Leonard married someone named Perina E. Perina E. was born on November 2, 1909 and died on December 31, 2000. I think they had a child named Pee Wee?
Josephine married James DeJulio. They had Robert, Donald and Irene.
Unfortunately, I have not yet confirmed much of the above information so there is a chance it is incorrect. Do you have any additional information?
