In addition to the Archives in Ajaccio, try the Archives Departmentales for these locales in Haute Corse (2B): Bastia, Canari and Venzolasca

Also, there are two Joseph Denegri's that were naturalized during the same era; maybe related, esp. the one from Sardegna. :)

1 BB/11/109 naturalisation ; DENEGRI Joseph ; Italie ; Italie ; 29 décembre 1815 Nat
2 BB/11/103/2 naturalisation ; DENIGRIS Joseph ; DENEGRI ; Apennins ; Sardaigne ; Italie 31 janvier 1815 Nat
