I had an uncle named Vincenzo Como that died in the mid to late 70's in Castellamare. His wife and children, my cousins, then came to America to be with the rest of her family, where they remained. I do not know too much more about him, but I could find out. I think he was in his mid forties to mid fifties when he died. Which would mean he was born in the 19-teens or twenties. Do you have any other relatives with a different surname from Castellamare?

Hi Tony, My Paternal Grandmother's maiden name is Como. Her father(b.1891) and grandfather(b. circa 1860) were both named Carlo Como. They also came from Castellamare del Golfo, Sicily. I am also related to BARONE'S,DiGREGORIO'S, CUSUMANO'S, NAVARA'S, MESSINA'S, BRUCIA'A & CIPOLLA'S, all from Castellamare, Sicily. If you have any more info that seems to fit, let me know. Thanks!

My grandfather, Vincenzo Rocco, born 1888 in Castellamare del Golfo, was the illigitemate son of Stefano Barone. He was given for adoption to either the Navarro or Navarra family. He came to America in 1903, died in Brooklyn in 1979 at 91. He was one of eight illigitimate children of the same parents (Stefano Barone and supposedly a maid).

Hi, I'm just getting around to reading my email. My father was Giovanni Batista Como, his father was Guiseppi Como and his mother was Anna Maria Mione. My father, Giovanni Battista, was born in 1908. He had two sisters, Paola and Vincenza, and two brothers Giovanni and Francesco. Francesco was killed in World War II. Does any of this sound familiar to you? I would love to hear from you.

Hi, my grandfather was Gaspare Barone, married to Caterina Como. Gaspare died in the late 40s due to illness.

We may be related somewhere down the line?

Surnames: Rocco,
My great grandfather was the same Vincenzo Rocco as your grandfather, he had three Children, with Giusepina , Domenico (My Grandfather), Josephine and Vincenza (V they called her). The story about the maid is True, her last name is a french name is bon ventre or bon veltre, My father is big into family research. He cam across a partial family tree online on this site. I'm Domenico or Domenic's granddaughter, originally from new York. My mother is his eldest daughter. Domenic had 3 children, a son and 2 daughters. All still living and all who had children of their own.

There is even a placard with Vincenzo Rocco's name on it and year of passage into the US with his name on Ellis island. But he came over once or twice before he moved his family here. I think that was on his first trip here, I was able to see the records once, and it was pretty cool.
