Surnames: Penecale, Esposita, Cataldi
I am looking for any information on my family I can find. I am having a hard time finding much but I noticed some keywords from your posts regarding Riccia, Campobasso and travel to the US around 1900 and the mention of Penecale. The information I know is as follows . . .

Frank and Concetta (Esposita) Penecale (My Great, Great Grandparents). Frank came to America first and settled in Edge Hill PA. Concetta followed with their first child, Macarmella Madeline (Penecale) Cataldi via SS Boliva April 23, 1900. Frank was a stone mason. The spelling of his last name was originally something like Penecello but it was changed at Ellis Island to Penecale. They had 11 children:
Marcarmella Madeline (Penecale) Cataldi
Patrick (Bulldozer Pat) Penecale (married to Annie)
Valduci Penecale (my great grandfather) - Policeman
Angelo Penecale (married to Grace)
William Penecale - Paratrooper in WWII
Michael (Mike) Penecale (married to Anna)
Anthony (Tony) Penecale
Florence (Florrie) Penecale
Delorita (Dolly) Penecale
Edith Penecale
and Frank Penecale (married to Minnie)

If you can see any connection whatsoever, please let me know.
