Three Civitano Photo’s Just Found

I have a few wonderful family photo’s to share. In my last posting there was a photo of my father Vincent with his God-father Thomas DeVito at his confirmation. You can see the post here Thomas (Gaetano) DeVito and FamilySeptember 25, 2020

While going through photo’s to find the confirmation picture, my brother Frank found a few more that he shared with me that I had not seen before.

In this photo below is my grandfather Frank Civitano with his cousin Vincent (James) Civitano with one of his daughters.

Vincent was the son of Louis Civitano and Angelina Marvulli. Vincent born in 1897, Grumo Appula, Italy immigrated in 1910 at the age of 13. He was traveling with his 10 year old brother Giuseppe aboard the SS America. They were the last of their family to leave Italy, traveling to their father on the immigration record. Written under ‘family or relative in country in which they came’ was recorded “nobody”. Vincent went on to marry Anna Plavcson on June 29, 1919. Vincent and Anna had 5 children, 3 boys, Louis (1921), Thomas (1930) and Frank Thomas (1934) and 2 girls, Angelina (1923) and Julia (1926). Checking with my uncle on this photo, he is not sure which daughter this is. I am guessing this photo was from the mid to late 40’s.

Frank Civitano and John Robert or Dominic John Civitano 🙂

This must be one of the first photo bombed pictures I have seen. Notice the man looking in on them. The woman appears to be a advertisement. In this photo my grandfather Frank is enjoying and afternoon ride with his cousin John Robert or Dominic John Civitano. They are the son’s of Frank Civitano and his wife Rosa DiArmiento. Frank and Rosina were the parents of 7 children, 3 boys and 4 girls. All were born here in the states. Angelina (19109), Mary (1911), Helen (1914) and Julia (1929) and Louis John (1912), Dominic John (1920) and John Robert (1922) My uncle could not be sure in identifying which son this was. I am leaning on this being Dominic but would love to have a family member chime in on this. Dominic married Anna Rose Servidio March 14, 1943 and they went on to have 4 children. John married Frances Kaiserman 1953 and had 3 sons. Whether Dominic or John – I love seeing them out having fun.

This last picture is of my grandfather Frank holding (who my uncle believes) is the daughter of father Anthony (Tony) Langellotti, Franks brother-in-law. Tony married Marie Visaggi on Dec 11, 1940. They had 2 daughters.
