The Quilietti Family

The story of a Scots Italian family

BRATTESANI Giudetta or Philomena1849-1943 Giacopozzi connections

Giudetta Brattesani was born in Borgotora.   She married Giuseppe  Giacoppazi whose family were from the same area

Children of Giudetta and Giuseppe Giacopazzi

Son Giuseppe

  • Giuseppe or Joseph
  • was born in 1881-1970. Moving to the USA with his family he changed his name to Pazzi. He married Ernestine Juliette Marie Milhau who was born in Alsace in France in 1890-1968. Their children who were all daughters, had the Pazzi surname. They settled in Walnut Creek in California.

Son Ernesto

  • Ernesto Giacopozzi 1882-1980,
  • had travelled to America with his parents in the year 1900 sailing from Le Havre on the steamship La  Gascogne.  From the Port of New York the Giacopazzi family moved to County Arizona where he and his father both worked as Miners in the area.

Whilst in America he married Filomena Brattesani. She was the daughter of Giuseppe Brattesani and Lucia Maria Brattesani [my own direct line family].  

They married in America and had six children.  For whatever reasons at that time they  changed their name to Jacobs and their children were documented in the 1930 census with this surname.  By this date Filomena had divorced her husband.  He went on to marry three other women and their story is documented below.
