Our Mineo CARCOs - begin late 1700s
The earliest CARCOs from Mineo that I have are the following. All were born, married and died in Mineo, Catania, Sicily, Italy until the last generation named herein regarding Francessa (CARCO) BELLINO's daughter, Antonetta (BELLINO) MAGGIORE, wife of Giuseppe MAGGIORE who died in Massachusetts in the twentieth-century. Here goes:
Arcangelo CARCO b. ~1750-1780, d. before 31 October 1829, m. bef. 1807 to Anna CIRRONE, b. ~ 1766, d.?, had at least one son, Antonio CARCO, b.~1806.
Antonio CARCO, b.~1806, d.?, m.31 October 1829 to Antonia ANGENICA, b.~1807, d.?, had at least two daughters, Giuseppa CARCO, b. 16 January 1831, d.?, and Francessa CARCO, b. 4 February 1845, d. 14 January 1924 in Mineo.
Francessa CARCO*, b. 4 February 1845, d. 14 January 1924, m.31 December 1869 to Sylvestro BELLINO, b. 22 April 1840, d. 21 Oct. 1897, had at least two children, Nitto BELLINO (b. & d. unknown), & Antonetta BELLINO, b. 26 August 1881 in Mineo, d. 21 July 1958 (in Medford, Middlesex County, Massuchesetts) *Family legend: Francessa may have remarried after Sylvestro died, but his name is unknown.
Antonetta BELLINO, b. 26 August 1881 in Mineo, d. 21 July 1958 in Medford, Middlesex County, Massachusetts, m. 30 June 1900 in Mineo to Giuseppe MAGGIORE (my husband's grandfather). They emigrated twice to Boston. The first time was about 1906-1909, then permanently in 1921.
This is ALL the information that I have about the CARCO family of Mineo, Catania, Sicily, Italy. Hope it helps someone!
