Thanks Biff. You posted this link once before and I found it so useful until my PC broke and the link went with it.

Going to bookmark it again for future reference.

Our poster might want to check the history of Alaric, King of the Visigoths, who went southward to Calabria after conquering Rome. There he is said to have sired more than 400 children (Madonna!!!) who all received the surname d'Alarico which over time became Talarico. Alaric died in Calabria (probably from PCE--procreation exhaustion) and, according to legend, is buried with the riches he took from Rome at the confluence of the Busento and Crati rivers.

Dear Biff that is understandable since either spelling is not listed in the italian surname dictionary making it both local in origin AND imported from abroad as it were and italianized. =Peter=

That would be Jermyn Mine, owned by the Jermyn Coal Company which operated two mines in Old Forge--Jermyn #1 and Jermyn #2. Same company mentioned in the 1920 census as Gabriele's employer.

If you check the 1910 census, Gabriele states his occupation as a laborer, coal mine but on the WWI Draft card and 1920 and 1930 cenuses as a miner. There is a difference. Most miners in the anthracite fields worked as contract miners and were paid by the ton or by the car. The miner did the drilling, placed and set off the charges to loosen the coal. His laborer loaded the coal into the cars. Laborers were paid per diem or by the ton or car directly by the miner. Powder, fuses, blasting caps and other supplies as well as tools like augers, drills, picks, etc. were paid for by the miner. Before gaining a miners certificate, a person had to work at least two years as a laborer and take a written test.

Miner shown boring a hole to place charges while laborer shovels coal. Scranton PA area, early 1900s.

The info you have provided is amazing, the first Talerico from Keyser street is in fact my great grandfather. I even have a picture of the house I took this past week. I will get in contact with one of my aunts and share all the info and let her write to Italy as she speaks a little Italian. Thank you so much for all of this work. You have brought many tears to my eyes just to see my family's name in print. The gratitude is deeper than words are available to express.

FeatherofHope,

If you are still in the Old Forge area, you should make a point to visit the Anthracite Heritage Museum and the Lackawanna County Mine Tour at McDade Park which is located off of Keyser Avenue near Old Forge.

In doing research I found that there may have been a first child. One we did not know about . The 1900 census lists him/ her as Casino Talarico 2 yrs old. So this is a new path I may follow to find out about this baby.
