Hi... Lorenzo daPonte is part of my family
'lore'. It is believed that one of our girl
children was adopted by Lorenzo Ann Grahl daPonte (a long time ago, of course). I've done a great deal of research and although there are references to "the adopted daughter", she is never named, except as the wife of a German Baron.
Lorenzo was an'off-and-on' resident of NYC.
And apparently a neighbor of my people.
I've posted my E-mail address. I'd enjoy hearing from you.
