Bianchi Family

Post by drinanb » 17 Dec 2014, 01:59

I am looking for any information on my great grandfather and his parents.
I do not know the region some say Palermo not sure.
The family immigrated to NY around 1884
They lived in Bronx NY for many years as well as Yonkers and Mount Vernon.
My Great Great Grandfather was Giavanni Antonio Bianchi. Birth year 1836 Death 1913
Wife Angelina Berma born 1847 death unknown.
They had 4 children 3 I know were born in Italy, my grandfather is one.
My Great Grandfather was Philip D Bianchi Birth-1/21/1880 Death Yonkers NY 3/1927
Frank- 1866-1984
Louisa- 1881-1981 Marrie Thomas Douria
Nelli 1887 she married James Belivio and they had children- Mary,Tommy, James, Francis.
My Great grandfather Philip D Bianchi lived on Saratogo ave and Mclean ave in Yonkers.
My grandfather was a member of the 9th ward taxpayer association from 1922-1927, in 1926 voted president.
He was also a stone mason, and from what I was told and found some news print he also was a jockey not 100%.
I have been searching for 4 years and I always run into dead ends.
I know I have a lot of living family in NY and in Italy, but unable to locate them.
I am searching because I have a terminal illness I only have my mom.
I am looking for illness and disease that may have or runs in the family.
I also just want to connect and most of all see any pictures of my Great Grandfather and the rest of the family.
Thank you to anyone who take the time to read this any help would be great.

Frank Bianchi born 1866 died 1984 I can not find his wife name.
He had a son Frank Rocco Bianchi born 1921 died 1985 It says his wife was Theresa Scalise born 1918 died 2012
Frank Sr was my Great grandfathers brother when they came to the US it was around 1884 and they lived in the Bronx.
I also have under Frank Sr and siblings of Frank Jr as- John A. , Hatte, Angelina, and Blanch Bianchi.
My great Grandfather Philip D when married lived in Yonkers in the 9th ward on Saratogo ave.
If you need more information let me know,
