Rosario Cali and Francesca Bongiovanni arrived in the US after 1896. He was from Villafrati and she was from Palermo.

Rosario Cali's parents were Guiseppe Cali and Maddalena Graziano. I believe they both lived the latter part of their lives in the Hammond area. Also, both had relatives in the area as well.

I know that there are a lot of distant cousins in the Hammond area. Would like to hear from you.

My grandfather was Jaicomo Cali or Calia and his parents are Michele Cali and Congeetta Riso Cali. Jaicomo was born in Chiusa Sclafani or that area in May 1886 or 1887.

Other relatives are Onofrio Pizzolato and Giovanni Pizzolato.

My grandfather resided in St. John the Baptist Parish, Louisiana.

Who do you know in that area or in Hammond?

Hi and thanks for your query. All the Cali information I have would apply only to families originating from Villafrati. There are some connections to nearby villages of Baucina and Cammarata, but I don't know of any connections to San Cataldo.

Thanks again, and good luck!

Thanks also for your query. As I said above, the Cali information I have is limited to to families originating from Villafrati. I don't know of any connections to Chiusa Sclafani.

Good luck to you too!
