Daughter= Anna Palmisano b. 1 Oct 1842 Termine Imerese
d. 17 Aug 1920 St. Louis, Missouri U.S.A.
married: Guiseppe Cianciola 25 Nov 1865 Termine Imerese
Anna and Guiseppe's son= Marco Cianciola b. 23 Jun 1867 Termine Imerese
d. 24 May 1947 Los Angeles, CA. U.S.A.
married: Carmela Cianciolo 6 Jan 1890 Termine Imerese
Marco and Carmela's son= Anthony Cianciola b. 23 Nov 1907 St. Louis, Missouri U.S.A.

Hi Mary,
My paternal grandmother was Pearl Theresa Palmisano who came to the USA through an arranged marriage contract and wed my grand father Augustine Cianciolo. Family rumor has it that she had about 13 siblings. Her parents were Agostino Palmisano and Maria Catanzaro. This is all we have to go on. If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me. Joellen Cianciola Watkins Thank you.

I am intrigued by the history of my paternal family. My great grandfather was Anthony Palmisano and the only mention of his town of origin is on a immigration document that lists Termini Emeresi,Sicily. He settled in cincinnati ohio were he had two wives in his lifetime.He was engaged in the produce business with I believe 3 or four brothers.
I was additionally intrigued by the letter of the person whose surname is Cianciolo since that is also the name of a produce business that operated next to the Palmisanos on 2nd street in cincinnati

Hi Mary Lorraine,

I read your query on Maria Palmisano.
I am researching Maria Palmisano born November 14,1891 born in TerminiImerese,she came. She married Joseph Cosentino and they had 12 children.
Her father was Lorenzo Palmisano and her mother was Josephine Spagnola.On her death notice was listed having 3 sisters.
Could this be the same Maria.
