      1. Hi Laura

        . This is my Father’s Italian side. The BARONE Family. Here
        is some info that I have.

        Saverio Barone/ Rosaria Mellucci married iin Santt Angelo y Fasanella .( I believe so, no documentation) They would be my Great Great Grandparent’s .His Son Angelo Barone arrived with his wife Pasqualina Tesauro , married in Sant Angelo y
        I have the marriage certificate in Italian from their hometown .
        They arrived in US in 1904. Ellis Island has these records as well as Brick commemorating his arrival
        My Great Grandfathers name is inscribed as ( Charlie) a nickname) aka Angelo Barone. They would have 8 children. my Grandfather the baby of the group ( Frank Barone)
        . Rosie, Anthony, Pasquale, Mildred, Louisa, John, Severio aka ( Bill) and , Frank. THE BARONE FAMILY .
        . MY Father was Frank Jr.. All lived in Brooklyn , Queens and Long Island most of their lives.
        Some of them retired with their families to Florida.

        Pasqualina( Tasauro)
        mother was Taveria Brancato. I believe many of her siblings also came to the US resided in Brooklyn.

        My daughter’s ( Ava) ancestory shows Brancato and Tesauro
        as distant relatives, The mystery

        that passed down was that Angelo would remarry a woman named Angelina.
        apparently died.
        My grandfather was 3. He did not know her and he talked about this throughout his life.
        What happened to her and was she married before? I have conflicting information about her.
        She seems to be a mystery, Birth certificates proves she has 8 children with Angelo.

        . The Barone Family was not your average family to say the least. They thrived, and prospered .and were well known.

        Angelo would start a business with a wooden cart and horses. ( I actually have
        the original permit for the horses) He later purchased a location on a street in Brooklyn ..Chauncey Street.

        He names the

        business after the street. ( sort of hide his Italian heritage with this Irish sounding name. )
        Chauncey Scrap Metal,Processors Inc..( a recycling business)
        All 6 Children would be involved in the ” business” I believe the two oldest daughters Rosie and Louisa were not.

        Mildred ( the only female )would be an integral part of the business. ( a decision
        70 years ago , that would
        contribute to the collapse of a “Legacy” on Long Island My Father Frank Barone Jr would be the last President He
        had worked for the Family
        from age 15
        until his death at age 78. ( 2021)., never
        retiring. The Business
        was his entire life .It was as much a part of him as his handsome

        I ( Lisa ) stepped in for 2 years. immediately after his death. uncovering
        a story that is easily movie worthy.

        . The business ran for 4 Generations ,( 104 yeas. a “Legacy” in the industry ( Incorporated in 1917)
        for which which I am proud of. Yet I have more questions then answers. I figured I should go back in time to figure out more.
        I was told Angelo commissioned a Bell in a church tower in the town Sant Angelo y
        Facinella. He achieved the ‘American Dream”. IAngelo.s mother was Rosaria Mel
        ucci) so I thought that would be of interest.
        He had never returned to Italy.
        ( Angelo ” Charlie ” Barone)1880-1937).
        Please let me know if you have any other information. I would love to learn more. I do plan on r
        returning to this town one day.
        Side note,**My
        mother German and Czech heritage,
        Her Father was a Detective in the Bronx. I seemed to get the inquisitive, investigative gene from her side. I believe we are related through my Great Great Grandmother.

        Also someone named Peter has a conflicting story about his Great Grandparents.

        Pasqualina Tesauro. ?? confusing
        Names were commonly used over again.
        Such as Angelo/s
        son Saverio Barone was named after his Father who was married to Rosaria Melucci..Saverio Barone I only knew as Uncle Bill. until after my Fathers death did I see his signature on business papers as Saverio Barone.

        His son is alive (William Barone,)living in Connecticut.
        My Dads cousin.
        I plan on getting information from him too.

    15. I am interested in finding information about my Grandfather Nicola Fierro and my Great Grandparents Gennaro Fierro and Pasqalina Brancato all from Sant’Angelo a Fasanella. It would be a big help if you could give me some direction. I plan to make a trip in the fall of 2015 and would like to know the best place to search. They Immigrated some time between 1880 and 1888 to New York.

      1. Peter

        Saw your post, my grandfather, Silverio Brancato immigrated about the same time to Uniontown, PA. I recently found out he was from the same town. Wondering how to confirm roots.
