Surnames: Violante, Fiorillo
Looking for information on my great grandparents. My grandfather, Antonio (Anthony) Violante came to Ellis Island on October 8, 1902 at the age of 17 and settled in New Haven.
He married Anna Fiorillo and had three children, Anthony, Louise, and Phiomena who died at age 2.

His brother Fransceso (Frank) Violante came to Ellis Island at age 13 in 1905 to stay with him in New Haven. Both we're barbers and settled in New Haven.

My father, also Anthony Violante is alive at age 82 and lives in Upstate NY as well as Louise who is 83.

Any information would be appreciated.

My grandfather also came from Scafati,Italy. He arrived early 1900 and settled in New Haven, Ct. His name was Antonio Fiengo and was a barber. He lived in the Wooster Square area on Fair Stree and his shop was on Wooster Street. I am visiting Scafati on Sept 3rd to research his past. Unfortunately I don't have much information to go on but maybe when I go to Scafati I will find out more information. We don't know why he settled in New Haven and we are looking for releatives that may have been located here. In your research, do you have any information about your grandfathers releatives that may have the name of Fiengo? Thank you, Ciao.
