My great-grandfather was Salvado Minadeo (1865-1903) who came to Cleveland from Italy (via New York) around 1892. His name was "anglicized" to Minaden (when and by whom is unknown). He evidently left several brothers in NYC while he, his wife Maria Anna D'Mora, and her parents moved on to Cleveland. They had six children, Michael (my grandfather), Miranda (m. Frank Mercurio), Domenic (1896-1926), and James (1897-1916), Rosa (b. 1899, m. Tony Amadeo), and Francis Carrie (b. 1900, m. ? Lo Presti).
If any of this sounds familiar, I'd like to hear from you.
