The Rua family lived and died in the Santa Maria La Castagna frazioni of Montalto. Pictured here is the baptismal font that most members of the family were baptized in. Because they attended church in Santa Maria La Castagna, we have baptism records to verify the earliest family members possible before the records cease to exist.
Below is a list of the webpages containing members of the Rua Family on this website.
Giuseppe Antonio Rua and his wife Caterina Fullone are the earliest known ancestors of this family.
Giovanni Rua was the son of Gaetano Rua and Caterina Bruno.
You can read more about their daughter Maria Rosaria Rua here. Maria Rosaria was my 3rd great grandmother.
