Spigarelli Family

Postby LaceeM » 26 Jun 2009, 16:57

Okay I am still new to this thing, but amazed at how much has been able to be found on my husband's family. My step-father is also Italian. His last name is Spigarelli. His father was Adloph and Adolph's father was Nazzareno. Adolph had 5 brothers also.

The other part of my step-father's family his mother was also Italian. Her name was Christina Walche, however, it wasn't always Walche it use to be Gawalcho (sp?), but was changed during one of the wars. She had a sister named Josephine. I went and got the dates of birth and death off headstones last night and will put them on here in hopes of finding some information for my step-father as well!

Thank you for all of your help! I truly appreciate it!

Okay here is all the information on the Spigarelli's that I gathered from the cemetaries here in Frontenac. The information you have given me seems right so far I can't wait to show my step-dad I think he will be pretty impressed, because he didn't know I was doing this for him.

Nazzareno 1881-1935
Elisa 1889-1976 after Nazzareno died she married a Joseph Fiorucci 1887-1978
Joseph 1909-1932
Leveo 1911-1969
Rinaldo 1912-1977
Helen-Rinaldo's Wife 1917-1983
Dino (baby) 1914-1916
Dino J. January 26, 1918-July 14, 1990
Adolph 1920-1970
Christina R.- Adolph's wife 1921-2007
John 7-18-1922
Josephine 11-12-1921
Other Spigarelli's I found that are related are as follows:

Joseph N. 1936-1985
Charles and Ricky 10-2-1949
Nadine A. April 17, 1919- March 17, 2002
Michael J. September 11, 1949- May 31, 1999

Walche Family is as follows:
Frank May 11, 1894 - January 27, 1975
Rose 1905-1995
Christina's information is above
Josephine R. 1922-2006
Married to Dino Spigarelli then divorced and married to Homer F. Little 1920-1979
Dino J.
