My father was Joseph Mazza born Calabria Italy Sept 17 1899 to Mary (Maria) Maiolo and Peter (Pietro) Mazza. 2 other children were Rosa and Vincent (Vincente). Vincent migrated to So. America. Peter was killed while visiting in U.S. Mary and son Joseph came to America when Joseph was somewhere between 5 and 9 years of age. Settled in WV. Mary married Ilario (Larry) Loielo. Had 6 more children: Paul, Cecilia, Virginia, Elizabeth, Estelle & Nancy. Later moved to Brooklyn NY. Joseph stayed in WV. Mary had a brother, Cosmo Maola (Maiolo)who lived in WV but moved to Ohio. May have had another brother, Frank (Ohio or PA).
My father had a cousin, Ella Mazza (Matts) Kloha (Ohio) and a cousin Betty _____ Lynn (MD). Peter may have had a brother who lived in Ohio or PA. I have been in contact with the Maiolo side of the family but so far no luck with the Mazza side. Any info would be appreciated.
