The Lorenzo D'Acquisto Family Home Page

Updated June 30, 2011

Yvonne Josephine D'Aquisto-Postma

I am researching the D'ACQUISTO family.
LORENZO D'ACQUISTO came to Brooklyn, New York in 1884 (1920 census) from Palermo, Sicily. His wife, FRANCESCA PAOLA ALAMIA, joined him three years later. Their last name eventually changed to D'AQUISTO (no "c").

Lorenzo had some siblings who came to America around the same time but continued on to California. This side of the family became involved with the tuna business and opened some restaurants. They continued to go by the original spelling of D'ACQUISTO. The siblings did not stay in contact with one another. I am very interested in this side of the family, although I cannot provide much information.

Lorenzo and Paola "Paula,Pauline" had 13 children; 8 lived.
Their children:(1.) Bridgette--don't know much abt her. Died before 1920. Married Joseph LONGO. Four children.(2.)Joseph--don't know anything. He also went by Joe Christie.(3.)Vincenza (Jenny)--married Michael GRAZIOSIE. Three children.(4.)Vincent James--Married Mary FORESTIERI. Two children.(5.)Frank--married Martha. Two children. Also common-law wife, Jane Hanson. She had a daughter. They had a son?(6.)Mary--married Joseph LIPARI. One son.(7.)Frances--married Salvatore PELLIGRINO. Five children.(8.)Salvatore John--married Gaetana "Lillian" ABBRUSCATO. Five children.

Any information would be appreciated. I will gladly share any information with you.
