I am looking for information about my grandfather, Biagio Laino. He was born in Atena Lucana, Salerno, Italy, in 1888. He moved to the US and lived in the Springfield, MA and Fitchburg, MA area. He married Louise Frangioni in 1906 and had several children. Sometime between 1932 and 1934 he got divorced (she is listed as a widow after this point) and moved to Detroit, MI.
In Detroit he married my grandmother, Fernanda (Margaret) Peraino (she was a widow, her maiden name was Compagnoni). They had three children. He died in December 1939. My dad said he was in an accident with a drunk driver.
I'd like to find any info about his parents or possibly find any long lost cousins. I'd also love to find a obituary or news article about his death. I'd like to find out if he did get a divorce or if he just up and left too. On his marriage certificate to my grandmother, he says he was never married before.
Let me know if you know anything :-)
