"I miss the days when you were here to guide me.
Those happy days, when you were here beside me.
Safe in the glow of your love, sent from the heavens above
Nothing can ever replace the warmth of your tender embrace."
I am researching the family of RIZZOLO from Newark, Essex County,
New Jersey.Pasquale RIZZOLO came to America from Calabritto,
Province Avellino, Italy.He arrived in the USA Feb.24, 1890.
His wife, Mariantonia D'Alessio and their three children, Oreste,
Martinello and Alfonso (Funzio) followed in May of the same year.
Oreste married Maria Carmella MEOLA
Martinello married Pietro CICCONE
Funzio, so the story goes ran off to join the circus.
Children of Oreste and Carmella were Pasquale, Antonetta, Anthony, Daniel, Richard, John, Geraldina, Antoinette, Italia (Edith), Elena (Helen).
Child of Martinello and Pietro Ciccone was Fillomena (Phyllis).
We have no information on the family of Funzio and would deeply love to reconnect with them.
I will gladly share information.Please Email me directly.
