Mary D'Esposito was the daughter of Michele/Michael D'Esposito and Carmela (last name unknown) who came from Italy to Philadelphia PA. According to cemetery records Mary was b.7-15-1871 and d. 10-8-1961
Mary m. Vincent Cacace (b. 3-16-1856: d. 3-16-1856)and lived in Norfolk VA.
Her obituary reads:
Mrs. Mary D'Esposito Cacase, 90, died Saturday at 7 p.m. in a Norfolk hospital.
She was a native of Italy and the daughter of Michael and Mrs. Carmella D'Esposito. She was a member of Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church. She was the widow of Vincent Cacase and had lived in Norfolk for the past 75 years. She lived at 5901 Granby St. at the time of her death.
She is survived by three sons, Joseph Cacase, Michael Cacase and Charles M. Cacase; three daughters, Miss Carmella Cacase, Mrs. C. l. Clark and Mrs. Ben McKenzie, all of Norfolk; one brother, Michael D'Esposito of Prospect Park, PA, six grandchildren, seven great-grandchildren and two great-great grandchildren. The body of Mrs. Cacace will be taken from H. D. Oliver Funeral Apartments to Blessed Sacrament Catholic Church for a funeral service Tuesday at 11 a.m. Rosary services will be at 8:30 o'clock. The family will assemble at 5901 Granby St. Interment will be in St. Mary's Cemetery.
Note: name is spelled both Cacace and Cacase in the obit, but official documents, e.g. passport applications for Vincent spell it Cacace.
I need the maiden name of Mary's mother Carmella/Carmela. Carmela died in Philadelphia 10 April 1898. Death certificates in Phil. at that time didn't include parents' names unless death was of a child.
I thought maybe Mary's marriage license or certificate might have Carmela's surname, but I have not found a marriage location for Mary D'Esposito and Vincent Cacace. Nothing showed up in Philadelphia records.
Any help at all with finding the maiden name of Mary (D'Esposito) Cacace's mother's name would be appreciated.
