My great grandmother was Eleanor Passarelli born about 1868 in Italy, Naples area.Her husband's name was Horace Picerni. I don't know when or where they married. (most likely Italy) She gave birth to my grandmother Clara in Brazil in 1897 but returned to Italy in 1901. At the age of 40 Eleanor came to NY (in 1908?). My grandmother Clara Picerni-Mazzara lived and died in Brooklyn. She had 3 brothers; Horace,Ceasar and Charlie, I think.
