The Tramonte’s originated from Palermo, Italy. Palermo is a historic city in southern Italy.
Our great grandfather, A.D. Tramonte, and his sister left Palermo as children, where they arrived at Ellis Island, eventually migrating to Gramercy, Louisiana where he settled, married, raised his family. He started out farming when he arrived selling his fruits and vegetables out of a 12 x 20 building. He later grew his business and opened Tramonte’s Store. The pictures below will give you some idea.
