Hi, I am trying to work on the Italian side of my genealogy. I have some info, but would love to hear some more. My great-grandfater's name was Donato Izzi, later changed his name to Daniel Eates. He was born in Torrello del Sannio in September of 1892. I don't know anything about his parents or his siblings. Donato's son told me that Donato's father's name was Giuseppe and mother was Angelina, but I am not sure how true this is. I also know he came over to the US in 1910 and lived in Bound Brook, NJ and later moved to Monongah, WV.
My great-grandmother's name was Gaetana Capozzi, later changed her name to Gaetana Eates. She was born in Santa Croce in 1890. I don't know anything about her parents or siblings either, but I also heard that she had a brother named Sam Capozzi and on her ship manifesto it says that she had a brother name Giuseppe Capozzi, but I don't know if either of these are true. She came over to the US in 1910 and moved to Fairmont, WV and later moved to Monongah, WV. Donato and Gaetana were married in 1914 in Monongah. If anyone has any information on either of these people, it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
