I'm still looking for info about a Lovato family from Recoaro, Italy who came to the U.S. in 1896, spent two years in Arkansas, and then came to Missouri and probably Illinois. I believe the name changed from Lovato to Lovatto sometime during the early 1900s. Dominick Lovatto is buried in Jefferson Barracks Cemetery in St. Louis. I believe Ted Lovatto was also a descendant. He is buried in St. Louis County. Other first names were Matilda, Angelo, William, and Joseph.
