Leo Favazza of Detroit (from Terrasini)

Postby seabreezes1 » 14 May 2010, 19:34

I believe there were 2 cousins named Liborio (Leo & Libonio) Favazza in the Detroit area with connections to Canada & Tennessee.

1- Maria Grazia Moceri married a Liborio Favazza in Detroit on 19 June 1917.
- Who were Liborio's parents & grandparents? Her parents?
2- Maria Grazia, widow of Liborio Favazza, died on 13 May 1982 in Detroit Michigan.
- Death record? Obituary? Children?
3- The heritage of this woman may (or may not) help, but I have been unable to locate any source material for her:
- Margaret R. Favazza (April 28, 1918 - Detroit, MI -Feb 24, 2002 Livonia, MI)

Background:
A. Liborio Favazza (s/o Giuseppe Favazza & M. Grazia Aiello) emigrated to Detroit to join his sons Giuseppe & Arcangelo in 1902. (documented)
B. Liborio (Leo or Libonio) subsequently moved to TN and Arcangelo to Windsor & Hamilton. 'Ngelo was a barber married to Lily LoRe per 1911 & 1925 records. (documented)
C. A cousin Liborio Favazza, possibly intermarried into this family. There were also several Moceri marriages in this clan.

Thank you for any source material that indicates the ancestry of any Leo Favazza.

Hello,

Have you check this site out http://www.downtosea.com/Genealogy/fami ... avazza.htm. It may have some info that can help.

My family is from Terrasini as well. I am researching Militello/Bosco and the families were also in Detroit about the same time as your family members were.

I will keep an eye out for any of your ancestors during my search.

Lois M.

Thank you. Anything in Detroit having to do with Liborio Favazza or Favazza-Moceri marriages will be a help.

Unfortunately, a significant portion of the DownToSea.com site on the Favazza families is incorrect, but it is my family. I'll send a private message to you.

I will put on you on my name list and keep an eye out. I know I have come across the name Favazza but I can't remember in what context.

I will forward anything I find...

Take care,
Lois M
