FEOLA FAMILY

Postby janettefeola83 » 23 Feb 2011, 05:21

I am looking on any info on my Ancestry. This is what I have come up with so far:
Anthony Feola was my 2nd great grandfather. He came from Salerno Italy Campiane to Boston. He was married to Listarina. They had 6 children Pasquale who was born in Italy, Amedeo (Medio), Carmelia (Camilla), Francesco (Frank), Francesca (Francis), and Fudmands (Ferdinand or Fred) who is my great grandfather. Listarina passed away somewhere about 1906. I am assuming from child birth since she had about 5 in a row from about 1898-1905. By somewhere around 1910 he was married to Rosa. They had a son who records say was John but when I spoke with my great Aunt Antionette she said they called him Joey so he could actually be a John, Joey, Giovanni or Joseph. Anthony was a photographer in Boston and had a studion on Leverett st. Aunt Toni said that Anthony and I am assuming Rosa and Joey moved back to Italy when Joey was about 4 so somewhere around 1920. This is all I have so far. Nothing more on Anthony and his family members. Nor do I have much on what happened to most of his childred. HELP!!!!!

Welcome to the Forum Jannette :D

I believe the correct place of origini was the town of Campora - Salerno Province - Campania region,
http://www.comune.campora.sa.it/
at least it was the place of birth stated by Pasquale Feola on his WW1 Draft Registration Card:

from the site Ancestry.com:

If you look at this document you'll see this notation:

Possibly the date of the return to Italy?

WOW!!! This is sooo helpful!!! O.k. so no my task is to figure out if it could have possibly been Eliza. Hmmmm......Also it looks like for sure there was another child. I have to look into it a little more and put a new post up!! Thank you!! I just have to say it is really nice that you did that! It's unfortunate that it is so shocking, but people rarely put in effort to do something for someone else just to be nice. But.....It was much appreciated!

Hey!
Sorry I am just getting this. Yes, I have learned that those names are very common in the town. Actually there are very few family names and youll learn that they are repeated in generations on both sides. Perhaps we are distantly related :) My great aunts name is Antoinette Feola.
