Surnames associated with the Melchiorre family.
A note on names: Melchiorre was misspelled either on entry to the USA, or by Camillo’s employer as Merchiono. Camillo successfully petitioned the court (2 April 1948) to restore his surname to Melchiorre. Melchiorre appears elsewhere as Melchiono, Marchiorre, and Melchiovne. Alternate spellings for DiPippa include, Di Pippa, Depippa, De Pippa.
