Just looked in one of my books "Americans of Italian descent in Philadelphia and vicinity" and I didn't see any Feriola's listed.

What exactly are you looking for? Living relatives?

Ancestry.com has a pretty good living people finder if that's what you want. Maybe there are some still in the area. It has phone listings- you can call and see if there's a connection.

I wonder if Feriola is a corrupted spelling. I checked the surname site and got no hits. http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/genera.html

You can use this site above. It usually tells you how common the surname is and maps what areas it's found in. Very useful site!

Type in the last name under "cognome" in the top left corner and you'll see what I mean.

"cognome non trovato" means name not found.

If you can find a ship record or something that may have her maiden name on it using varied spellings that might help.

The name Ferioli does exist in Italy, and also Feriolo (very rare)

Do you think it could be Fiorella and someone got it mixed up? There is info. on the Fiorella bros. in Philly from the Historical Soc. of Penn. (See the link I posted below).

http://www.hsp.org/default.aspx?id=741

You can also contact the society and see if they can give you any info.
