Marianna, shortened to Mary, was born on May 24, 1857 in Oratino, Italy and was the 2nd of 14 children of Luigi & Loreta (nee Tirabosso) Petti. She had brothers Felice, Giuseppe, Nicola, Sabatino, Carmine & Domenico and sisters Giovanna, Luisa, Antonia & Filomena.
Mary was 20 years old when she married Donato Petti on July 1, 1877 in Oratino.
Marianna and Donato were 3rd cousins -- she on her father's side and Donato on his mother's side.
Marianna traveled from Palermo, Sicily on April 11, 1907 on the ship S.S.Sannio arriving in New York on April 29, 1907 with children Josephine, Julia, Domenic and Frank.
According to the 1910 Cleveland census, she had 11 children -- I have been able to account for 10 at this time -- six girls and four boys.
Mary was 23 when Pasquale was born in April 1880 and she was 42 when Frank was born in Oct. 1899. All children were born in Oratino and five died there. They were married 40 years when Marianna died.
She died at the age of 60 on Sept. 8, 1917 from myocarditis and was living at 1906 E. 120th St. Donato died 18 years later on Aug. 1, 1935.
Mary is buried with Donato in Sec. 22, lot 114-A, headstone # 7036 at Lake View Cemetery in Cleveland, Ohio. Besides Donato and her children, she was survived by 16 grandchildren.
