Thanks for your post. We probably don't have a connection because the branch of Cacciatores that my grandmother Rosalia came from was from Catania and most of the family stayed there. I have learned that her father was Gaspare and he had a brother Sebastiano who married Carmela Messina; their father was also Sebastiano who married Felicia Panarisi from San Biagio Platani. Apparently only Gaspare, my great grandfather stayed in San Biagio. The other brother and father went back to Catania where there offspring still live. I know that there are many Cacciatores on the East coast but I think they must be another family or other branches of the family I descend from. If I learn anymore, I'll let you know.
