I am looking for information on my Great Grandmother, Edith (her name was changed from the orginal Italian to this...) Bacci who was born 12 April 1889 somewhere (or directly in) around Parma Italy.
She married Abraham(o) Fenoglio from Castellamonte Italy (date unknown, and we don't know if they married prior to coming to the US).
She had 4 children with Abraham: Rena (1908); Oscar (1910); Dolly (1913); Dorothy (1923). All children were born in Dunkirk Kansas, where they lived and where Abraham had a store and small farm.
They moved (while the children were still living with them at home--their early teen years, I believe) to Dearborn Michigan where Abraham died in 1947.
Edith Bacci remarried Angelo Zubbiana and never had any children with him.
Edith died on 22 Nov 1971.
I am looking for her parents names, siblings, cousins, ANYTHING.
If you have any thing at all to contribute (even if you think it might not be related) please let me know. I have found with my fathers side of the family(the non-Italian), that often families immigrated to the US and ended up near family they knew in their "motherland". So, I have made connections with family members through these "cousin,etc" lines.
Thanks for taking the time to read this.
