The Tree


NOTES on the Tree: This is an attempt to show the three Scalpone branches in linear form (Roman, Chicago and New York), and to indicate how each member fits into the over-all picture. You can scroll down to find areas of particular interest. Each name is followed by the years of birth and death, if known. Differing colors, and the letters A, B, C, etc., preceding the names, will help you differentiate between the generations. Therefore, within each family, people with the same color and letter are brothers and/or sisters.

The Founder

SALVATORE SCALPONE (Born 1780/85? in Contursi)

– married (1809) DONATA PIRCHIO. They had two children that we know of, Francesco and Nicola.

Note: Of course, we all have mothers and fathers, so in that sense Salvatore is not
the “founder;” the term is used here to indicate that he is the earliest known Scalpone.
