My family is from Toritto, Bari, and I was almost a Cea. By that I mean that my grandfather was first married to a Rosa Cea, who died young, before marrying my grandmother. Here's the info I have on Rosa:
Pasquale Florio’s first wife was Rosa Cea. They were married for eight years. Rosa was born on January 31, 1891 to Nicola and Camilla Mongelli Cea. She arrived in New York on May 9, 1899 aboard the steamer Neustria. Traveling with her were her father and mother, and her sisters Anna, 11, and Domenica, 2. She died childless at age 26 on December 11, 1917 of general peritonitis and cardiac complications. Rosa was interred in St. Raymond’s Cemetery, The Bronx (Section 12, Range 51, grave 110), on December 13th. At the time of her death, she and Pasquale were residing at 301 W. 152nd Street, New York.
Also, my ggggreat-grandfather Giovanni Florio was married to a Catterina Cea, who died sometime around 1800. Does anyone recognize these names?
