Coias in France - Lille and surrounding areas

I have recently learned that my great grandfather Ernesto Coia may have been born in Lille, France sometime around 1870 - 1880. His father was Antonio Coia and his mother was Antonia di Silvestro of Castelnuovo al Volturno in Molise, Italy. It is interesting that a french artist from Lille - Charles Moulin - came from Lille to Castelnuovo and remained there until he died. Moulin is well known in Castelnuovo and is rumored to have designed a Coia crypt in the Castelnuovo cemetary.
Does anyone have any information on any Coia's in Lille, France? Ernesto had a child with Carmela D'Onofrio, who is Alberto Coia, my grandfather, who was born in Vienna, Austria in 1902, but grew up in Castelnuovo.
I am looking for any information on Ernesto.

Thank you!
