Hi Treva!

BINGO! Yep, this is part of my family. Frances Clesceri Corsentino was the great-niece of my g-g-grandmother! Raimando Clesceri was her nephew, son of her brother, Giorgio Clesceri.

Thanks so much for getting back to me with the maiden name of Frances's mother, some records have her down as 'Scino', which should have been 'Schiro'. I will add this info to my family tree program. I had no clue the actor Frank Corsentino was a relation to us, this is awesome.

Hi Treva,

Thanks for getting back to me, I greatly appreciate that.

My g-g-grandmother was Jennie (Giovanna) Clesceri Capaci. She was born in Piana dei Greci, Sicily in 1863, and came to America with her husband, Andrea, and her two kids, George, (Giorgio) and Anna, who I descend from, Anna Capaci Faucetta was my g-grandmother. They went thru the Port of New Orleans and settled in Los Angeles around 1904. Jennie had a brother who had children who also settled in Los Angeles. I am wondering if your Frances Anna Clesceri Corsentino was one of her nieces.

I am about 99 percent certain we must connected due to the extremely rare surname of Clesceri, as I said its not only rare in America, but also in Italy.

Waht can you tell me about Frances Anna Clesceri Corsentino? Can you tell me her parents names or her mothers maiden name?

Thanks, please let let me know what you uncover.
Sincerely yours,
Brigitte Tucker-Ford

Frances Anna Clesceri Corsentino
Hi there,

The surname Clesceri is very rare, not only in Italy, but also in California and America. Clesceri was the maiden name of my g-g-grandmother. Im just wondering if maybe we are related, can you please drop me a line?

Anthony Corsentino
I've created the memorial for Anthony & as soon as I get his tombstone picture, I'll transfer ownership of the memorial to you. Have you asked Toni to transfer Laura's memorial to you yet?

Died: 03/12/1971
Is this the one you're looking for? He's buried in St. Peter's, not with Laura who is in Holy Cross. Please let me know.

Happy to help!
Hi Treva,
No worries --I usually go out and care for a couple of other graves that seem to be in need of some TLC so it's no problem for me to pop down the road and check on your family. I'm honored to tend to your family's plots for you :)
I'll get some better photos for you in the coming days. Take worries! :)

RE: Carsten @ Mountain View
Hi Treva,
My grandson and I were at Mountain View yesterday to tidy up a few graves and wander the grounds. I took my gardening tools and cut the dirt/grass back from your dad's headstone -looks much better. We left an American flag at your dad's site and an angel bearing a gold cross at your grandmother's. I didn't have my camera handy, but will go back out in the next day or two and retake a photo for his memorial page. I'll continue to check in on your family when I visit just to make sure that their sites look decent. I only live about one block from Mountain View and go out about once a week.
Take care, Wanda (wesblues)

RE: Aaron P Nash
I have a website for the Shoemaker clan at I have my information on Logan listed there. If you would like to add any info on the Nash family, I would be delighted to add the data to my site.

Carston @ Mountain View
Yes, they were in need of a bit of dusting off and minor grooming -I sheered back the overgrowth as best I could prior to taking the photos. Now that I know where your family members are resting I would be pleased to care for their burial sites and send occasional photos....seriously. I love love to stroll thru cemeteries and kind of feel like I'd be taking care of distant relatives or friends. Happy to do it if that's ok with you.

Aaron P Nash
Thank you for the heads up on my misspelling Aaron's name. I have modified his memorial.

Are you related to the Wise Co, VA Nashes? Logan Palmer Nash (son of Lilbourn Rollins, son of Wicklief Hendricks) is my material step-grandfather.

RE: Re:John Corsentino
Was able to get a look at John's death certificate today and have posted the relevant info to his page. It wasn't completely helpful, but maybe there are a few more clues there that might help you decide if this is the right person.

Please feel free to click on the Edit Tab and then the "Suggest a correction or...." link to send us an email with any additional information or questions.

Hope this helps!

RE: John Corsentino
His page has been updated with all the information available at this time. His date of death was 11/7/1933 in Los Angeles County, he was 59 years old, and his wife's initial = M.
There was no obit in the Los Angeles Times.

Someone will need to get/view a copy of his death certificate to find out anything more at this point. While we usually get to the Recorder's Office about once a week to check various research requests, it may take a little while for it to get to the top of the list.

According to the Lot Sheet, there may be a marker present, so you may want to put in a photo request to see if it can confirm his year of birth.

Hope this helps!
