Msgr. Valverde Succumbs at 73...
Pastor Emeritus of St. Lucy's Church

A native of Borgetto, Scicily, a suburb of Palermo, Monsignor Valverde was born March 7, 1877, a son of Mariano and Antonina Valverde.

He received college and seminary training at Monreale Seminary, Scilicy, and ordained Dec. 23, 1899, at the Cathedral of Monreale...

Following two years of post graduate study at the Royal College DeCosmi, Sicily, during which he founded a boys school on Palermo, Monsignor Valverde came to Scranton with his mother to visit his brother, the late Joseph Valverde of the Capouse Ave. address, and his sister, Mrs. Giovanna Genovese, who still resides in Scranton. Besides his mother he was accompanied at that time by another sister, the late Mrs. Maria C. Florey, mother of Msgr. Salvatore J. Florey, pastor of St. Lucy's Church and Rev. Myron C. Florey assistant pastor of the same church...

Wow, thanks! That was quick. I have the obit for the Monsignor; he was my husband's grandfather's brother. He and a sister immigrated to the US shortly after my husband's grandfather. They all lived in Scranton, where my husband was born and raised.

His mother either stayed at that time or came back; she died there. The whole visit was only supposed to last six months. Mariano did not immigrate. I'm not sure he was even still alive when they immigrated.

I live in New Zealand, so it's pretty difficult for me to get to either a family history centre or Italy, lol. I practically live at the Ellis Island and LDS sites xD

But thanks so much for the quick responses!
