Dear Tennessee Vescovos,
I'm Peggy Wilson and I'm looking for the family of my great-great-grandfather Antonio Vescovo (born July 1820.) He changed his name to Peter Wilson when he immigrated but still used Vescovo on the Census and in recording his children’s births in the family bible. He immigrated to California sometime before 1860 from Capodistria (now Koper) very near Trieste. I don't know if our families have any connection but I'm willing to learn anything I can of the Vescovo family history. Do you any information about the origins of the Vescovo family in Italy? There aren't many of us so I can't help thinking that most of the Vescovos must be related in one way or another.
