Researching my wifes Tabone family, originally from Serradifalco, Caltanisetta Province in Sicily. Her grandfather was Carmelo Tabone, born 4/7/1882 in Serradifalco to Michaelangelo Tabone. He had a brother Moise Tabone who came to the US and settled in Buffalo, NY by way of Pittston, PA. Carmelo married Maria Gerace Alessi, born 3/28/1884 also in Serradifalco. They also settled in Pittston, PA and eventually moved to Rochester, NY. Would love to hear from anyone out there connected to this family.
Hi: I am related to your wife. Moise Tabone was my great grandfather. Carmelo was his brother. Moise married Maria Lombardo. Their oldest daughter, Rose was my grandmother. Modesto (Marty) Alessi, is my grandfather. He is the son of your wife's grandmother, Maria Gerace Alessi. Maria was married previously to Charles Alessi. Maria and Charles Alessi had two sons, Modesto and Charles (not sure if he was a junior). Charles (senior) died in his 20's and Maria then married Carmelo Tabone who was Moise's brother and had more sons. In a strange twist Rose and Modesto met and married. I was born and raised in Buffalo. Who is your wife's father? I remember Pete, who was married to Pearl and Carmen growing up. Can't recall the other sons' names.
Hi Janet. Great to hear from you. My wife Maria's grandfather Carmelo had 4 sons: Michael, Sam, Peter and her father Carmelo. She has a brother Carl, 16 yrs older who lives in Missouri. If Uncle Marty and Aunt Rose are your grandparents, who are your parents? Is your mom Mary? Would love to hear more as I have been researching a long time on this family.
