Hi! I am Mary Gallucci Hockenbury... my family is from the Serra San Bruno/Calabria area...Vibo Valentina regions.
My grandfather is Nicholas Gallucci...Birth year 1886 from Italy
My Great grandfather is Biagio Gallucci...Birth year 1870 from Italy
They are arrived at Ellis Island NY between 1901-1903. They boarded a passenger ship from Naples Italy.
The surname was Galluccio. When they became citizens of the US a few years later, they changed name to Gallucci...in Italian..means little rooster!!!
Just wondering if I have any distant relatives here locally-PA/NY/NJ AND OHIO.?
The Galluccis are a very large family with over 818 still residing throughout Italy.
I may be reached at firstname.lastname@example.org
Look forward to chatting with you!
