|Bob Pompa is the son of Anthony Pompa and Mabel Cheese Pompa. I am actively just beginning to put my family tree together. The Pompa name in this case is Italian.My grandparents, the Mother and Father of Anthony are as follows: Rocco Pompa (Grandfather)emigrated from Castelucio, Italy and Rose Falcone (Grandmother) from Foggia, Italy. Upon arriving in America they settled in Spangler and Barnesboro, Pennsylvania respectively. They married in that locale and lived their entire lives in that area.|
My mothers maiden name was Mabel Ellen Cheese.She was more commonly known as "Nellie".Originally from Smethwick, England, she was the daughter of Robert Cheese and Caroline Smith. Upon Arriving in the United States the family spent their entire life in Mauch Chunk (now known as Jim Thorpe) Pennsylvania. I have no information on my Great Grandparents on my Grandfathers sideof the family other than his parents names were Edward and Martha. My Grandmother, Caroline Smith was the daughter of Joseph and Ellen Smith.Joseph and Ellen were eventually divorced and Joseph Smith returned to England and passed away there.He is buried somewhere in the United Kingdom and I welcome anyone with information to pass it on.
