Marra (Marro) Family

Postby skmarra12 » 15 Jun 2011, 02:28

Hi,

I am looking for information about the Marra (possibly Marro) family. I am specifically tyring to locate information about my great-grandfather Steven (Steve, Stephen) Marra (Marro) and Great-Grandmother Lucia (Lucy) Marra. Steven Marra was born in Italy c. 1874 and died schenectady NY c. 1961 (immigrated 1900-02) Lucia was born in Italy in c. 1870 and died in schenectadt ny c. 1930 (immigrated 1901-03). They may be from Beneveto Italy. They had 5 sons and 1 daughter, my grandfather John Michael Marra was their youngest son and was born in NY. When Steven was naturalized in 1929 his name is recorded as Marro but on previous census it is Marra. I never met my grandfather and know very little about this side of my family. Any information would be most apprecitated!

Thank you,
SkMarra
