Hello, I am in need of help or suggestions on my grandmother and her parents. --- MARY ANNA LORIO, my grandmother, was born in Louisiana, I know not which parish, on July 21, 1862. She married my grandfather, Albert Charles Creel, in Harrison County, Mississippi on July 19, 1879. They reared 9 children in Harrison County, Mississippi in the Handsboro area which is now Gulfport and lived there until Albert Charles Creel died. --- MARY ANNA LORIO died in New Orleans on April 24, 1929 and both she and her husband are buried in St. James Cemetery in Gulfport, MS --- When I started searching three years ago, all I had was birth and death dates which I obtained from the headstones in St. James Cemetery. I have obtained a copy of the marriage license but it did not give parish of Louisiana where she was from nor did it give any information as to her parents.
The only information I have on her parents is from the death certificate of MARY ANNA LORIO and it states "Mother, ELLEN QUINN, from Ireland and father, ANTHONY LORIO from Italy.
I have no idea when either of her parents came over, where in Ireland and Italy they came from, where they emigrated to, where they married, nor where they lived in Louisiana. On the census in Mississippi that I have found her on, it only lists her as being from Louisiana. If anyone has any information on LORIO's please get in touch with me.
If anyone can offer any suggestions as to how I can find where in Louisiana she was born or some way to find out more about her parents please let me know.
Thanks, Emma in Texas EAMessigner@orbitworld.com or Kendrick_@webtv.com
