RIZZETTA's from YONKERS< NY
Antonio Rizzetta owned a construction company in Yonkers, from what I understand he layed the concrete for many of the public schools. Prior to that he lived in the Bronx, the Williamsbridge section and did all kinds of different jobs.
His mother Filomena came to the USA with his cousin Salvatore Borselli, sometime around 1905. I am assuming her husband passed away and that is why she came here. Home was in sersale, Italy.
I have been researching since I got my first computer in 1990 and havent gotten to far. Probably because I dont want to pay for anything (haha) I have a list of last names that I have come across during my research and am baffled. Unfortunately there is no one alive on my father's side to guide me or give me any info.
The names I have are:
Abbonati, Avellino, Bondati, Borselli, Calabrese, Critelli, Esposito, Maracculli, Diodato and Rizzetta.
Pentone is where grandma was born and Sersale is where grandpa was born, but they met here in the USA in Peekskill, NY where grandma was a chamber maid.
