Bio and Links
Bio Photo My profile pic is me literally in my mothers arms, 1965.

I live in The Denny Triangle in Seattle, WA, USA. I know it is important and vital to record accurately the historical aspects of a persons life, including their final resting place. This, my father inspired me to do as a kid, when he would take me with him to visit family graves. He would tidy them up, like,, actually cut the grass. I remember the cemetary where his father was sometimes was overgrown. I liked to clean up those graves with him and those memories are deeply a part of me. Even though I can not see the graves of anyone related to me here in Seattle, Washington, I can still participate in honoring and respecting their existence.

My X's are from NW Florida. Through FAG and ancestry.com I have been able to see the final resting places of many, many of my mom's side ancestors, going back to early 1800's. Americans of Scottish, Irish, Cherokee, Creek, English, French descent, migrating from New York and Carolinas to Georgia and Alabama, all eventually making their way to NW FL.

My Y's are from Roccabascerana, in the Province of Avellino, Campania, Italy, about 30 miles east of Naples. There is a large residence called "Case (House of) Ragucci" within Avellino. House of Ragucci. My grandparent's immigration states Roccabascerana as origin.

My Aunt, my mom's sister, who I never met, Margaret Ann Williamson, who died before I was born, but I feel a connection to her

RE: Thank you for the kind words
Hi Mario -

You are my Neil Young. His words are so inspiring and so are
yours. I always appreciate words that are thought-provoking,
words that you read and are interpreted one way and then
read them again the next day and are interpreted entirely
different. It makes one think and I like that! I need some
inspiration in my life at this point and, right now, you are my
inspiration. Thank you, friend!

God bless you always!
Many hugs, Jean Ann

Hello Mario,

This note is long overdue, but as you know, I enjoy visiting
your family very much. So, you are always welcome for my
visits.

There has been sickness in my family that has kept me away
from Find A Grave, but I will be back visiting your memorials on
Monday.

Hope all is well with you my friend - keep in touch!
Hugs, Jean Ann

RE: Right now I would settle
Thank you. My Grandma Josie was the inspiration for the sparklers phrase. She was something else.

RE: Sorry, i pressed enter to quick
Excellent news. Good to have you back. I really do appreciate your visits to the memorials. I'm settling in to life in Bay Ridge. Mario, I didn't realize how much I MISSED Italian food and community. We have a nice mix here of other cultures, too, but this area still feels like home to me. It's so great. Wish I could send you a slice of the great Grandma Pizza they make up on Third Avenue in the 70s.

My condolences on the loss of your PC
Mario! I know the feeling. As long as YOU are ok that's what counts. Eventually you will replace the PC but nothing and no one can replace YOU. Hope you stay well and take care of yourself. Without you the rest of the story is impossible...I think you know what I mean. Let me know how it all works out. Sending positive thoughts and prayers your way.

Charlotte "Lottie" Johnson
Hi Mario,

I am a distant relative from Florida. My GGGrand Mother is the full blood Muskogee Creek lady that married Elijah Padgett Jr.

I congratulate you on your hard work. I was shocked one day when I googled Charoltte Lottie Johnson and discovered some beautiful treasures. I tried for a long time to get pictures of my Indian ancestors from the Padgett and Parker family, but they were old and would not even let me look at them. But, I forgive them. I was wondering if you know if there is a picture anywhere of GGGrandmother Lottie Johnson? But, I was so happy to see my Great Grandfather William D.Padgett and Great Grandmother Sis Mary Padgett. I think I got her eyes. My sister calls me China Doll. LOL...I believe from my research Sis was of the Cherokee NATION.

I have enjoyed your videos on youtube. Really entertaining.You have a wonderful family. We are mostly French, Native American, and who knows !

Thank you so much for your dedication to our family.They are still with us and in us. I think.

Your distant somebody...LOL
