Head Stone of Pietro and Carmela Bonitatibus

 While researching the Pettorano sul Gizio to Stubenville, Ohio connection I often ran across the surname Bonitatibus.  Two obits have already been added to the blog.  So I am attaching some photos from Mt. Calvary Cemetery.  Headstone photos included are Ascenzo Bonitatibus, Carmela Bonitatibus, Pietro Bonitatibus, Ida Bonitatibus, Margaret Cipriani Bonitatibus, Nick P. Bonitatibus and Helen Bonitatibus.  Also, I found a note in the newspaper from November 21, 1918 that the infant child of Pietro Bonitatibus died at 633 South Sixth Street, Steubenville, Ohio.   I hope you enjoy.


  1. This is the gravesite of my paternal grandparents. I had a wonderful childhood surrounded by my Bonitatibus and Camerlengo grandparents.

  2. Ascenzo Bonitatibus and Margaret Cipriani Bonitatibus were my uncle and aunt, He was my grandmother brother on my father's side, and she was the sister of my grandmother on my mother's side. I met them in 1960, the time they came back to Pettorano for a visit, I was 14 years old. I would love to meet their family. I live in Hamilton Ontario Canada
    Any help would be appreciated
