Zeolis from Weymouth, Mass

Hi, My name is Janice Zeoli. My husband, Mel Zeoli, Jr. was born in Weymouth as was his dad Mel, Sr. and his dad Antonio (Tony). Tony's two older brothers Sebastian and Carmine were born in Santa Croce del Sannio, Italy and came to America in 1893 as young children with their parents Francesco (Frank) and Rosa Gioia Zeoli. I'm thinking Frank had already come over about 1889 to get established then went back to get them. Frank was born about 1855 and Rosa was born about 1862, both probably in Santa Croce. I got their death certificates from the Weymouth town hall that say Frank's parents were Antonio Zeoli and Maria Antonia Testa. Rosa's dad is listed as Carmine Gioia and mom's last name is Anzorino. Francesco Zeoli had an older brother named Joseph who also lived in Weymouth where he and his wife raised 4 kids. There was yet another Italian immigrant in Weymouth named Oreste Zeoli but I haven't determined what, if any, his connection is. Mel and I are researching his Zeoli roots in Santa Croce del Sannio, Italy and will update info as we find out new stuff. - Janice Zeoli (
