I am helping my husband research his family. He has very little to go on and that is sketchy. Most of his family is either scattered or passed away. Here is what he knows and what I have been able to find. Any further information would be wonderful. thank you.
Vincent Defelice DOB 1921 DOD 1992 residence Berlin, NY in Rennselear County. s/o Frank and Ruth H Bartholomew Defelice. Vincent is said to have been born in Waterbury, CT under the name of Sopino DiFelice. M) Grace Jones of Berlin NY. Grace the d/o Frank Jay and Catherine Mary Dunn Jones. Both Grace and Vincent are deceased. My husband is not sure where other family members are but does remember visiting his grandmother Ruth Defelice in the Mariah / Port Henry, NY area. She lived in a nursing home up there near one of her sons.(Ernie?) I have found in the SSDI a Ruth Defelice who died in 1971 with a last known residence of Elizabethtown, NY. Very near Mariah, NY. Siblings to Vincent were Francis, Ernie and his wife Olive, Louis and a sister Beatrice. Vincent's father Frank lived in the Schenectady, NY area and retired from the GE there. I have found a SSDI for a Francis in that area who's dates indicate the same generation as Vincent. 1920-1986. Could this be Vincent's brother? Some of these family members are most likely still living and I do not wish to disturb their right to privacy. Any information given will be for personnal knowledge only and is greatly appreciated.
