Vincenzo Napolitano and Chiara Riso

Napolitano coat of arms Vincenzo Napolitano was born in 1850 to Constantino Napolitano and Pasqualina Aiello. He married Chiara Riso in 1879. A copy of their marriage bann can be viewed here: here. Together they had 11 children over a period of 21 years. Listed below are their children. It is interesting to note that Vincenzo, the eldest of the children of Costantino and Pasqualina is the only one that followed the naming tradition of his children. At least 2 of Vincenzo and Chiara's children immigrated to Argentina.

Vincenzo & Chiara's Descendants

The descendants of Vincenzo and Chiara are living in Italy, Canada, Argentina and the United States today. It is possible they are living in other countries too but unless I am contacted by these familes, I will not know. Clementina and Costantino immigrated to Argentina. Angela married a Riso and died in Montalto Uffugo. Rosina married Luigi Tricoci and had several children, several of whom immigrated to the United States.


Pasqualina & Filippo Napolitano

Pasqualina married Filippo Napolitano in 1907. Filippo was the son of Luigi and Filomena Lanfre. Pasqualina must have died in Montalto Uffugo since I know her husband Filippo Napolitano died there on March 11, 1956 in the Vaccarizzo frazione. His birth act had a notation of his death that can be viewed here. The translation of what it says in english is below.
