One of my first ancestors in America was Richard Sutton, who came to Jamestown in 1607, didn't like the swamp and ended up in Georgetown, Mass. His son Richard (there is a Richard in the family in every generation down to my son), was born in Roxbury in 1621 and the family stayed put.

After the 1850s, they started marrying into just about every migration wave to hit the shore.
My Italian grandmother was from Verona, and fits your momma's description to a T.
