Does anyone have info on my GGGgrandfather Andrew Parise (b. @1867)Living in Pittsburgh (Congress street) in the early 1900's. His son, Raffaele Parise (my ggrandfather, b.1893) came to the US through Ellis Island in 1897 with his mother, Rose Ciccone or Palma Rose Ciccone on the ship Chataeu Yquem out of Naples. Their last residence was Marcedusa, a little town in Calabria. Raffaele changed his name to Ralph. Operated a store on Liberty Ave, in Pittsburgh. In 1917 was living living on Congress st. w/ mother, brother & sister. Fought in WWI. Married Pauline Miller, their children were Lubetta, Palma, & johnny. He eventually died in Trumbull Co. Ohio in 1973.

I am researching the Mussari family from Marcedusa. My Mussari relatives came to Carbondale and Honesdale PA, and briefly to Newburgh, NY from Marcedusa during the first decade of the 1900s and on the ship manifests from ellis island records I have seen them traveling numerous times with Parise family members from Marcedusa to PA. I have learned that the Mussaris and Parises were close families. Given the size of Marcedusa, I believe we must be talking about the same Parise family.

My grandfather was alos Andrew Parise. He died long before I was born. My father was a child (born 1913) when his father died. My grandmother Teresa survived him for many years and died in the 70's. he is buried in Clavery in Homestead PA and she is buried in Queen of Heaven. I have heard he had other sons than my father and uncles and one was named Ralph. Unfortunately there is no one of that generation left to tell the real srory. Hope I helped a little

Was your father Robert Parise or Fred Parise? Do you have any photos of your Grandparents?
My grandfather Ralph was the son of Andrew from his first wife Rose Ciccone (died Before 1905).
He then married "Tresse" Teresa and had Vincent, James, Robert, Fred, Lillian and Marie (the ones I know of).
Would love to see a photo of Andrew or Teresa!
Regards,
Dennis

I am Fred's son. There was Rose (sho died as a child)James, Robert, Lilian, Fred (born 12/25/1913) Mary Grace aks Marie (still living somewhere in Pittsburgh, I think in nursing home) and Rita (born 03/11 circa 1925) all except Marie are deceased. Did your father have any siblings? Did your aunt or mother work in Monroeville at one time? I am in Cleveland now and would like to meet you. I can show you your great grand fathers grave. There used to be a picture on the head stone but some member of the family had it replaced. He is buried with his in-laws Tessies parents. I believe at ont time Andrew owned a store in the hill. My father went to Sr. Agnes not part of Carlow University in the lower hill. He died in 1995 shortly after his 51st birthday
My sister Pat is going to look for pictures of Tessie and any other relatives. I lost all of mine in a flood a few years back. Maybe we can meet up with Jim's daughter, she has lots of old photos. fnp14534@sbcglobal.net

Angelo,

I am the grandson of Andrew and Tesse Parise. My father was also Fred. All of my aunts and uncles with the exception of my oldest aunt are now deceased. I just recently found out that my grandfather was widowed before marrying my grandmother and I have relatives in the US I have never met. Can you tell me the first names of the Parise's in Marcedusa?

I used to visit friends in Reading that relocated to Philadelphia. I used to love to go up the mountain and just enjoy the wonderful views from there.

Hope you are well

Fred Parise

"Calvary" Cemetery is not in Homestead, PA. It is actually across the bridge from Homestead. The cemetery is located in the City of Pittsburgh, in the Greenfield neighborhood.
