Looking for information on the Marascio family of Calabria

Post by jmarascio » 03 Nov 2010, 02:53

I am searching for information on the Marascio family of Petrizzi, Catanzaro, Calabria.

My great-grandfather, Gioachino Bruno Marascio immigrated to the US from Petrizzi, via Naples and New York, in March of 1911. He was born in 12 May 1891. His father's name was Bruno Marascio. His mother's first name was Concetta.

He had four known siblings. Antonio Marascio (b c1889) immigrated to the US and married Carmella Raico. Sister Theresa Marascio (b c1892), a Roman Catholic Nun, stayed in Italy. Francesco Antonio Marascio (b 2 May 1894) immigrated in May 1913, and married Grace. Rose Marascio (b 1903) remained in Italy where she married ? Battaglia.

I know nothing further of the family, with the exception that his immigration records show that he was staying with his cousin Raffaele Giorla in Philipsburg, NJ upon his arrival into the United States.

If you have any information on this family, please reply here or contact me directly.

Thank you.
