Cesario of Luzzi, Cosenza, Calabria, Italy
I am looking for any Cesario's from Luzzi, Cosenza, Calabria.
My great-grandfather was Francesco Cesario, a blacksmith, who immigrated to the Germantown section of Philadelphia, PA in 1903.He had 7 children with my great-grandmother, Maria Giorno: Serafina/Sara (Paris), "Catherine" (or Katy.Various nicknames included Walter Winchell, Flash, Elevator), Lena/Marie, Gaetano (Gator), Rose (Parrillo), Philomena/Mamie (Di Giacomo, my grandmother), and Carmella (Bruno).
He had one brother, Umile, who immigrated to the US, and lived right around the corner from him in Germantown, on Ross Street.He married Rosaria/Rosa Rizzo and had 4 children with her.
My great-grandfather also had a sister, Filomena, for which my grandmother was named after.I know that her descendents are in the religious order in Luzzi (I know that I have cousins who are priests and one is even a monsignor).I don't Filomena's married name.
I am VERY interested in hearing from anyone who may know additional information on my Cesario's or who may even be a relative.If so, please email me at [email protected]
