Re: More Scillieri Family info
Just found out:
My gr-grandfather: Giombattista Carfi had a sister named Anna Maria Carfi.
Anna Maria Carfi, married (Giombattista's wife's brother): Rosolino Scillieri on 20 Nov 1889. They had 4 children: Angelino, Raffaele, Gaetano and Rosina. Because they are related to both the Carfi and Scillieri side of the families, they were 'double cousins' of my grandfather.
Anna Maria died 07 Jul 1908 and her husband Rosolino Scillieri died 08 Aug 1910. When Anna Maria died, the children went to live with their aunt Marianna Scillieri and her husband Giombattista Carfi. They raised the children as their own.
Eventually, Angelino, Raffaele and Rosina all immigrated to NJ. I do not know if they came together or separately. Gaetano stayed in Santa Croce Camerina.Raffaele (Ralph) was a barber. Angelino a shoemaker. And Rosina was married in Santa Croce Camerina before immigrating. Her husband's last name was Barone.
Any of these names familiar to anyone?
