Notes for Maria Caterina Giuseppina (Josephine) MORETTI
Josephine came to the USA in about 1880 accompanied by 3 brothers (Charlie, Achille, and Leonard) and one sister (Maria Giacomina). Charlie and Josephine went to San Diego, while the rest ended up in the Santa Rosa area. One of Josephine’s younger brothers, Achille, married Giulio’s niece, Celestina Pozzi, daughter of Mariana Vanoni. Her sister, Maria Giacomina, married Olanda Patocchi, a Petaluma dairy farmer.

Josephine & Giulio both had bars. Giulio’s bar catered to Santa Barbara’s elite, while Josephine’s to the lower class.
