LORIO, QUINN, CREEL, APFFEL, NOESSER, SIEBERT, REEB, DEIBEL, NICHOLAS
I am in need of help or suggestions on researching my ggrandparents, ANTHONY LORIO and his wife ELLEN QUINN who were the parents of my grandmother, MARY ANNA LORIO who was born in Louisiana (don't know which parish) on July 21, 1862.
The only information I have on her parents, ANTHONY LORIO and ELLEN QUINN was that which was given on MARY ANNA LORIO CREEL's death certificate and I don't know who the informant was) ANTHONY LORIO-father, born in Italy and ELLEN QUINN- mother born in Ireland. No other information is known except that someone at a reunion said they heard that they were two immigrants who were alone when they entered this country (probably in New Orleans) so they got married.
I have no idea when they came to this country nor which year. Since my grandmother, MARY ANNA LORIO was born in Louisiana in 1862, I assume they married in Louisiana and settled somewhere nearby New Orleans if they entered this country there. I don't know if she was the first child nor how many children they had. So, they could have entered in early 1860s or before then.
They were Catholic but I doubt they were married in a church. I have not found them in a Louisiana census. I have looked in surrounding parishes of New Orleans but never found them but I could have looked at wrong parishes. When my grandmother, MARY ANNA LORIO married my grandfather, ALBERT CHARLES CREEL, she married him in Harrison County, Mississippi on July 19, 1879.
The only record of this I have found is the Marriage Bond and it only shows that she is from Louisiana, not the parish or town, nor does it give anything about her parents. Have been unable to secure any other documents from Mississippi although I have tried. Some information on MARY ANNA LORIO--she was born July 21, 1862, married ALBERT CHARLES CREEL on July 19, 1879 in Harrison County, MS. They lived in Handsboro, MS which later became Gulfport and reared 9 children there.
ALBERT CHARLES CREEL was the son of CHARLES WOODBURY CREEL and LUCINDA NICHOLAS CREEL ALBERT CHARLES CREEL died in Handsboro, MS on April 30, 1910. Some time after he died the widow and children moved to New Orleans where MARY ANNA LORIO CREEL died on April 24, 1929, at the home of her daughter, KATIE CREEL DEIBEL.
Both ALBERT CHARLES CREEL AND WIFE MARY ANNA LORIO CREEL are buried in ST. James Cemetery in Gulfport, MS On the 1900 census of Harrison County, MS, MARY ANNA LORIO CREEL's mother is listed as living in their household and is shown to be from Louisiana.
