My grandmother's maiden name was Maresca and her father's name was Salvatore. They came from the Sorrento area but all I have are three children listed all which are daughters I would guess. Is this anywhere close to where you family came from?

My grandmother, Laura Morris McNamee, was related to Salvatore and Tony Maresca of Jersey City, New Jersey. Laura received postcards from them in 1906 and there were pictures of the two boys--they looked like about 12 and 16 years of age. Could these boys be the ancestors of your father????

I too am researching my husband's maternal family name Maresca. I don't have too much information about it. Antonio Maresca was born in Santa Maria Agnello (part of Sorrento) on August 2, 1861. His mother was Rosaria Ciampa, his father Salvatore. Antonio married Louisa Rolla born (we think) in 1864 in the Sorrento area. The couple emigrated with their son Raffaele, born July 1890, to New Haven, Connecticut in 1892. They had three more children : Antonio, Giuseppena (my husband's mother) and Natale. Is any of this familiar to you? Thanks for your reply.

Maresca Family

Yes it does sound a bit familiar. The Salvatore Maresca that was the father of my grandmother was from the same area. He married Luisa Baalama. They had three daughters - Josephine, Christina, and Nuncia.

He was born in April, 1838 and was the captain of a merchant ship sailing to the Port of New Orleans. My grandfather Charles Pasquale Guerriero worked for him and later married Nuncia who was born on March 13, 1875.

All of the family came in through the Port of New Orleans.

Salvatore died July 31, 1924 in Natchez, MS which is the state in which I think they moved to.

Nuncia (Lucy) and Charles had thirteen children, 12 of which lived to be adults. There is only one who is still alive.

Does any of this sound familiar in any way?? Trying to do Italian families is not the easiest thing in the world I have discovered.

Rae, Do you have reason to believe that your Maresca ancestors lived in Jersey City, New Jersey in 1906? We have a postcard picture of the family and it looks like there are at least 10 children in the family. Please respond direct to me at jdkrug@cts.com and maybe we can work together to solve our research. I live in California so am quite a ways away from the east coast and getting direct research accomplished. Where do you live? Let me hear from you again.

Hi Susan

There are some coincidences between the family I am researching and yours.

My husband's great grandfather was Raffaele Maresca, born and died in Italy. Raffaele married Giuseppina. They had a son, Antonio Maresca, Sr. born in Italy on October 5, 1860. Antonio Sr. married Luisa Rolla (I'm not sure of the spelling of the first and last names.) Antonio, Sr. and Luisa emigrated to New Haven, CT with their two year old son Raffaele around 1892. Luisa's passport was issued at Santa Agnello, a part of Sorrento. Antonio, Sr. was reputed to be a seaman. Luisa and Antonio, Sr. had three more children, Antonio, Jr., Giussepina (my husband's mother) and Natale. None of the sons married. Giuseppina married Raffaele Tramontano, had two children, Salvatore and Raffaele, and was widowed. She married Donato Maselli. The marriage produced one child, my husband Donato.

Does any of this info tie in with yours? I sure hope so as I have reached a stalemate. The municipal offices at both Santa Agnello and Sorrento are unable to help me.

Thanks for your reply. Good luck with your research. It seems that around Sorrento the name Maresca is very common.
