In Memory of Erminia Langellotti and Nicoletta Marvulli

In Memory of 

Erminia Maria (Emily) Langellotti 

4 March 1901 San Gregorio, Caserta, Italy ~ 1 February 1932 Bronx, New York 

Daughter of Giuseppe Luigi Langellotti and Filomena DeLellis

I have told the story of Emily Tanzillo before.  Her life ended tragically at age 31, leaving her husband Frank Tanzillo with 3 young children to raise. He was given considerable help and a roof over their heads with her sister Katie, husband Frank Civitano and their family. Emily is buried at St Raymond’s Cemetery (new) in the Bronx along with her husband Frank Tanzillo and great-granddaughter Dorine Falantano.

Tanzillo, Frank

Rest in Peace

 

 

In Memory of

Nicoletta Civitano nee Marvulli

10 September 1877, Grumo Appula, Bari, Italy ~ 2 February 1962

Daughter of Domenico Marvulli and Rosa D’Armiento

 

Nicoletta

 

Nicoletta was my great grandmother. Arriving in 1906 at age 29 she joined her husband Vincenzo Civitano who was already here. Their first child, a boy was born in 1907 followed by a daughter in July of 1909. Happiness was short-lived as Vincenzo was murdered Oct 12, 1909. After a trial, Nicoletta returned to their home town of Grumo Appula with infant daughter Julia and son Frank, then 2. Not much is known about her life back in Italy. She did remarry a gentleman named Nicholas Gisondi. Details of this marriage are sparse. It is believed he too was a widower with children. Nicoletta’s children returned to New York in 1923, living with the family of Frank and Rose Civitano. Frank was his 1st cousin, son of his father’s brother. After the death of her second husband, Nicoletta returned herself, making her home with her daughter Julia and her family.  Nicoletta is buried at Holy Cross Cemetery in Culver City, California
