Someone named Michele Campanaro was my grandmother's first cousin. Was your Michele ever in the United States. I know that there were Rocco's in the family-- she named her son, my uncle, Rocco. They were born in Castelluccio. My grandmother emigrated to the United States in 1915. She married into the Iorio family on 3-4-1911.
My grandmother was Maria Guiseppa Campanaro. Her parents were Pasquale Campanaro and Vincenza Salvatore, born in the 1850's to early 1860's. There is some conjecture that Vincenza was originally born in Foggia in about 1861. Pasquale had been in Castelluccio and the family settled there. Some of the Campanaro's moved (or might have come from) Campobasso, a city not that far from Castelluccio.
I feel as you do, in that we'd have to be related, but we'd need to go further back to put the pieces together definitively.
