A big thank you to my brother Frank Civitano and our 1st cousin Karen Nordone nee Oliveri for visiting Ferncliff Cemetery and Mausoleum in Westchester County, N.Y. yesterday, where so many of our family members are laid to rest. As my brother wrote ‘for the blog sis’ and so for the blog it is.
My grandparents Francesco Civitano and Catherine Langellotti
Karen’s mother, my Aunt Colette (Nicoletta) is laid to rest by her parents along with her partner Joseph Puglia
Along with Frank and Catherine in the same row are 3 of Catherine’s siblings
Not at Ferncliff, but I wanted to include for this posting are Catherine’s three other siblings, Emily, Margaret and Anthony
Anthony Francis (Antonio) Langellotti 1909 – 1958 was married to Maria Visaggi – Anthony is at rest at St. Raymonds, Bronx. Maria later went on and remarried.
Margaret (Immacolata) Langellotti 1907 – 1983 married John Leone – They too are both at Ferncliff.
And I must include at St. Raymonds Cemetery the parents (in order of age oldest to youngest) Emily, Vincent, Margaret, Anthony, Catherine, Rita, & Arthur
Also at St Raymonds Cemetery is Joseph’s brother Angelo
Laid to rest at Calvary Cemetery, Woodside, Queens is Joseph and Angelo’s brother
Theodore Langellotti 1864 – 1934 and his wife Philomena 1868 – 1946
Before changing branches I need to add my father Vincent and my brother Vincent both laid to rest at St. Raymonds
Back at Ferncliff and the photo sent to me, off of the Vito Luigi Civitano branch, is Domenico (Dominic) Civitano and his wife Jenny (Giovanna) Maggio and two sons Onofrio and Michael.
Dominic and Jenny also have two other son’s laid to rest at Ferncliff in a different section.
Son Frank Joseph ( Francesco) 1915 – 1996 and his wife Jean (Vincenza) Cancellieri 1919 – 2011
Son James Vincent 1919 – 1970 and his wife Viola Marie Gioia 1918 – 2007
Daughter Angelina 1909 – 2003 is laid to rest at Eglington Cemetery in Clarksboro, N.J. along with her husband Carmine (Carmelo) Paglia 1905 – 2003
Son Louis James (Vito Luigi) 1911 – 1994 is laid to rest at Glendale Cemetery, Bloomfield, N.J. his wife was Madeline Mary (2nd) Lasorella 1917 – 2002 and she died in Dallas, Texas
The last son to mention was Dominick (Domenico) Civitano 1913 – 1991 and he is laid to rest in Long Island National Cemetery
Before I close this posting, I wanted to mention the parents of Filomena DeLellis married to Joseph Langellotti (seen above) – both her parents immigrated and are laid to rest here in the states. Her father Francesco Saverio DeLellis 1827 – 1908 was laid to rest in Johnston, Rhode Island and his wife Caterina Loffreda 1851 – 1918 is at St Raymond’s.
While this was originally meant to reflect those at Ferncliff adding all of the family felt most appropriate for this posting.
If there are other family members at Ferncliff that I have missed, I would love for you to share this information with me.
