I have been doing research on the Monastra Family. My great grandfather - Gaetano
Monastra lived in Croce Via Sicily - he married Frances Fioco. Their son Nicola,
my grandfather was born in Capo D'Orlando, Messina - he married Rosa Scaltrito
from Gesso, and in 1862, and emigrated to the United States between 1892/1893.
If you have any information, or your family is related to these Monastra's -
please let me know. By the way, my mother was Marie Cipo Monastra.
