UPDATE/CORRECTIONS To: Mazza's & Maiolo's from Caulonia, Calabria, Italy

THIS IS UPDATES/CORRECTIONS TO THE PREVIOUS MESSAGE: Searching for relatives/information on ancestors. My Grandfather was Peter (Pietro) Mazza married to Carmela Maria Maiolo ( I think her parents may have been Dominick & Philemonia Maiolo according to Maria's brother, Cosimo Maola's obit). Peter came to America before 1905 (visiting either a brother or brother-in-law) and was murdered. Maria and her oldest son, Guiseppe (Joseph) Mazza (my father) sailed from Napoli 5/21/1905 & arrived port of NY 6/5/1905, destination Maria's brother, Cosimo in Glady, WV. I know Cosimo lived in Davis WV in 1900. He must have moved back to Davis because the 1910 Census has him living there and a Merchant with a Retail Grocery Store; I have been told the store was blown up by Mafia when he refused to pay protection money. I believe he later moved to PA and later to OH. Maria had 2 other children left in Italy with family: Vincent (who I believe migrated to South America) and Rosa. Maria, widowed, married Ilario (Larry) Loielo shortly after arriving in America. Children from 2nd marriage were: Rosario Paul Loielo; Cecelia Loielo (D'Andrea); Virginia Loielo (Fichera); Estelle Loielo (Silipo); Nancy Loielo (Dalbo) & Elizabeth Loielo (Philips). They went by the last name of Lawyer at one point. Most moved to NY at some point but Joseph & Elizabeth remained in WV. Elizabeth & Family moved to AZ around 1948-1950. Joseph & Family moved to FL in 1956. Nancy & Family moved to FL at a later date. I know that Joseph had a cousin, Betty Lynn (I think daughter to Larry Maiolo (changed to Mayola) and a cousin, Ella Matts (changed from Mazza) Kloha - not sure if she was a Mazza or Maiolo cousin as her parents were both Mazza & Maiolo; I have hear that her mother was Cosimo's wife's sister and Cosimo's wife, Catherine was also a Maiolo (possibly cousins). Ella's father was a Mazza (could be a possibility that this was an uncle of Joseph's on his fathers side????) I believe Maria had a cousin named either Bruno or Rocco who was in the shoe business in NY.
