About Our Family Research

The following information represents what I have been able to find out from here:

Calogera Tirone b. 1858 - My Great Grandfather
Calogera Tirone b. 1886 - Son of Calogera
Giuseppe Tirone (1) b. 1888 - Son of Calogera
Giuseppe Tirone (2) b. 1882 - " " "
Giuseppe Tirone (3) b. 1897 - " " " (My Grandfather)
Giuseppa Tirone b. 1895 - Daughter of Calogera
Eduardo Tirone b. 1902 - Son of Calogera
Carmella Tirone b. 1884 - Daughter of Calogera
Nicolo Tirone b. 1888 - Son of Calogera
Salvatore Tirone b. 1900 - Son of Calogera

As far as I can tell, my grandfather, Salvatore, and Nicolo, all came to Canada about the same time . They all came to Hamilton and Salvatore moved to New York, USA. I have no idea about the rest of the siblings. My father was not even aware of the others of anyone other than Salvatore of Nicolo. Nicolo died in 1945 and his death notice in the Hamilton newspaper said he had lived in Hamilton since 1912. He had several children, but like my father, none can recall anything about their grand parents.

My Grandfather's first wife was Teresa Li Catta. She died in about 1939 when my Father was 7 years old. I'm pretty sure they were married in Racalmuto. My Grandfather remarried a few years later, Maria Di Rocco, also from Sicily.
