    Hi, I am looking for any information regarding my family. I am trying to make a family tree for My 2 little girls. My great grandfather’s family, last name Frioni, came over on the boat from Patrica, Italy. Though he, himself, was the youngest of his siblings, or at least one of the youngest &he is not listed on immigration records. We believe he might have been born in America, but are not sure if he was in fact, if he was still in the womb, or exact details as he passed away around 30years ago. My great grandmother who he married came over around the same time, but she, her first name was Emily, &her family, were actually from what is now Austria, but was still part of Italy at the time. Both their families settled in Aliquippa, Pa, West Aliquippa, plan 12. My great grandfather passed away before my great grandmother, when some of their children, one being my grandfather, were still adolescents. Their other children were grown & having kids of their own. Some time later she remarried & married Bill Edling, changing her last name to Edling as well as the young children’s, one being my Grandfather George Edling, who sadly passed away last year at the age of 73. My great grandfather, as well as his sons were in the US military &thus my family moved around quite a bit & their children were born along the way. Most of which remained in Aliquippa, Pa. My great grandmother passed away some 20years ago & my second great grandfather Bill Edling, remarried shortly after to Rose, he passed away just a few years ago, in Colorado, in his 90’s. He was cremated, half of his ashes stayed in Colorado, &the other half were brought back to Pennsylvania to be buried next to my great grandmother Emily. Most of My family is buried in the old Catholic cemetery on broadhead rd,Hopewell/Aliquippa, Pa. Sorry, I know that’s a lot, just hoping it might help, thx!

    Both my paternal grandparents came from Patrica. My grandfather was John or Peter Rinaldi and my Grandmother was Ugalina Simoni. They were first cousins and they married in Patrica in 1915 while my grandfather was home from leave from the front during WWI. He came to the USA in 1906 and returned for a visit to Patrica in 1911. He was conscripted and was involved in the Turkish war fighting for Libya. He emigrated to the USA with his wife and two children in 1920. He settled in Aliquippa PA and later moved to Detroit, Michigan where he worked for Packard Motor Cars. He retired from that position. In his later years, he received a small pension for his military service in Italy.
