According to the US Department of the Interior, the Liberty Bell was made by John Pass who was a native of Malta. He changed his name from Giovanni Pace when he moved to Pennsylvania. He also owned an iron foundry at Mt. Holly, NJ. This comes from a letter written in 1987. You might learn more by writing:

Independence National Historical Park
313 Walnut St.
My family has been traced to Virginia in the 1730's so there is no relation between us and Giovanni unless this story is true.
