Also,
Antonio was naturalized in 1911 and Leah was naturalized in 1918.

I would really like to hear from anyone related to this family as I am trying to fill out Antonio and Leah's Descendants.

My Grandmother was Antonia Capelli, she was born in hammonton in 1915 and she was one of about 16 children, some half siblings when her father died and her mother remarried, her great grandfather was Antonio Capelli who lived on Vine Street, he was a member of Our Lady of Mount Caramel. I don't know if that will help but I figured if anyone had any information further that would be interesting. I believe that her father's name was John but im not certain, I do have an uncle Salvi who passed (he's a great uncle) and there's many more...

My grandmother Adelaide was a Campanella and her mother was a Persico. I know the family was from Hammonton and use to do Blueberries years ago. Also, my great-grandfather started the Our Lady of Mt Carmel event on July 16th. It would be great to hear from you and compare notes. I do remember an Aunt Jennie

I am a Campanella, but we spell it Ciampanella. You mentioned a Benjamin Campanella, born in 1898, whose father was Antonio. Do you have any further information on him? My grandfather's name was Benjamin and I have not been able to find anything on him. I was told he became a naturalized citizen; still no record. I would be so thankful for any data you can provide me.

There was a Bulletin of Labor Statistics article written by Emily Fogg Meade, mother of famous sociologist Margaret Meade, in 1907 that details the arrival of several Campanellas and a Capelli (a cousin) to Hammonton in the 1870-1890 time frame.

I am trying to find out if my 2nd great grandfather Matteo Campanella is the same one mentioned in the article.
