Classification: Query
Surnames: Giovino, Chieffi, Staffa, Sabino & Stauff
Seeking info on my Grandfather: Salvine, (b. 1894 in Wilkes-Barre, PA) brother of Pellegrino (b. 1889 in Atripalda, Naples, Italy). Step-brothers of Tobias Chieffi (b. 1895 in Wilkes-Barre) & Frank Angelo Chieffi (b. 1897 in Wilkes-Barre). Their mother, Congetta (nee) Giovino: unsure of her marriage status. Pellegrino and Salvine changed their surnames: first to Stauff. Salvine kept it for the rest of his life and family's name. Pelligrino changed his from Stauff to Staffa. Pellegrino, on his 1907 marriage/wedding certificates has his surname as Stauff and names his father only as Sabino. Angelo Chieffi, father of Tobias & Frank Angelo, raised all 4 boys from infancy in Wilkes-Barre. He and Congetta, (and her brother Antonio di Feliciano Giovino) are laid to rest in St Marys Cemetery in Hanover Twp, PA. See 1910 Wilkes-Barre census for further confusion. Chieffi name spelled phonetically: Ckeiffi. SEEKING THEIR PROPER LINEAGES! Whew! Please help me if you can! Thank you!
