  1. Could anyone tell me anything about the family of Assunta Tontodonati, Scara, Pescara, Italy, who immigrated to the United States in the early 1900s to marry John Catalano. She had brothers, Carmelo, Alessandro, Paulo, and others. (all brothers) We believe her mother’s name was Maria Gracia ? Any information appreciated.
