Looking for persons who are related or have info relating to the following:
Peter George Qafzezi and Vasile Marko (maiden name) gave birth to Thomas Peter Qafzezi in Korce Albania on March 15 of 1885-1887. I have 3 dcments that conflict one another. However, social security administration has him down as 1886.
Thomas and his brother Taqo (sounds like Tacho) came to the US in 1906. Thomas became an American citizen on 4/30/1928. He worked as a stitcher in a raincoat manufacturing company located in the Harbor Bldg., on Atlantic avanue in Boston. he resided at 703 Auburn street in Whitman Mass. Thomas was married to Jennie Elizabeth Campbell and they gave birth to Everett Piro Peters Qafzezi on December 31, 1915 in Brockton Mass.
Tacho was married to his wife named Olga and they gave birth to three children of which 2 were boys and 1 girl who's name is Mary Peters. I know that one of the boys owned or managed a store in Massachusetts and the other was an architectural engineer. Mary was an executive secretary according to conversations with past family members. I believe that Olga died prematurely of Cancer. She and Tacho were both members of the Orthodox church in Worcester MA.
Would be interested in speaking and corresponding with anyone with additional information or known relatives that are from these individuals either in the US or in Albania.
