I am having a hard time with my Ricci line. I've heard some stories but can't connect anything. My great grandfather was John Ricci born in Chieti,Abruzzo, Italy b late 1800's married Margaret (Marguarite) Tanaro. John's birthname may have been Gianni or Giovanni and the last name may have been LeDonne or DeLemmo. John had to change his name upon arriving in the US and took his mother's maiden name of Ricci. His family owned a family business possibly a winery in Chieti.
John and Margaret arrived in the very late 1800's or early 1900's and lived in Conshohocken, Montgomery Co, Pennsylvania (outside of Philadelphia) where they are both buried. John worked for the Steel Mill.
My grandfather is Alfred Joseph Ricci and he had brothers named Emedio, Joseph, Philip, Rocco, John and sisters Caroline and Emma (Dolly). Most of my grandfather's siblings moved out of Pennsylvania.
Any information would be appreciated. You can email me direct at RicciGenealogy@aol.com
