My grandfather,Father and Brother were all named Joseph. The original spelling was Campisi. Grandfathe came from Caccamo,Sicily but many Campise's came from Cattolica,Sicily.
The Campise/Campisi name is very common in Sicily and means in the camp or of the land. Our family settled outside of Pgh. and were in the produce business.
Do you know what part of Sicily your family came from?
