Stanley Guercio, son of Giuseppe (Joseph) Guercio born about 1897 in Italy and Maria Carmela Puma born October 29, 1905 in NYC and died August 1981, had 4 children with a wife whose first name was Jenny. His brother Robert never married. Trying to find the full names of Stanley's wife, children, and grandchildren as well as dates of birth, marriage, and death. There may also, per a 1930 census, been two older children of Joseph Guercio and Maria Puma, named Nellie born about 1925 and Olga born September 6, 1926 and died November 19, 2006. I'm not sure if the census family is the same family because the one family member who vaguely remembers this family only remembers the boys. Would like to obtain the spouses, children, and grandchildren of Nellie and Olga in case they are family.

Paul, thanks for those replies. I think you have the right Joseph Guercio. Olga is not the right person, because, she is still alive per another family member, but had moved in last year with her son somewhere on Long Island and we don't know how to reach them. She was pretty ill at the time.

I had the census data, but your link to the obituary has now convinced me that this is a different family despite the husband and wife having the same first names. In my family, the wife was born in New York, not Italy. Too bad maiden names were not mentioned in any data so far. The maiden name should be Puma.
I took the 1897 date from the 1930 census which I now believe is a different family. Joseph Guercio and Maria Carmela Puma had two boys, Stanley and Robert. Stanley married a Jenny ? and had 4 children (names unknown). Robert never married and is deceased. The relative who knew them a little bit is unaware of any girls to this couple.
I believe that your Maria Carmela Guergio nee Puma was called Mollie or Molly: 1930 United States Federal Census about Mollie Guercio Name: Mollie Guercio Home in 1930: Bronx, Bronx, New York View Map Age: 24 Estimated Birth Year: abt 1906 Relation to Head of House: Wife Spouse's Name: Joseph Guercio Race: White Occupation:

It seems right based on her age. I know nothing of him, except his name. I tried finding the census through Heritage Quest Online through my local library, but they didn't have it. I know about their two sons, but not Stanley's 4 children annd their families (Robert never married) Curiously, through the Mormon site, I found a Joseph Guercio born in 1908 which would agree with your census data and died August 1981 in New York which is the death date for his wife. Now I'm wondering if they were in an accident together or was it coincidence. Unfortunately, SS records do not give next of kin on the free version.
