Do not belong in the Old City/ Old Town Cemetery
in Athens Alabama. I do not know where they belong but I went back a second time because I couldn't figure how I missed these nice monuments in this old cemetery. They are not there.

Beverly, I'm glad I could help. You can see what the church and the entire cemetery looks like here:

Gladly - I added the photos and captions to your memorial. I can't figure out what happened, because I used the photo request "fullfill" to add the photos, and that was the only one there.
Anyway, I was happy to add the photos. I really enjoy helping others to obtain photos of their family members' grave sites, and I have been very lucky to have such willing people do the same for me. I probably would never have the opportunity to obtain the photos without their help.
Good luck in your searches.

Hi Beverly, thanks for your note:
I also photographed Frances Raim and Celia Rabinowitz (1893-1973), in case you want to make memorial pages for them.
|William Cole||RE: Cappalonga|
I think I have made contact with two relatives – Beverly Libby on FindAGrave and Ed Synicky from Ancestry. I am fortunate and happy to have found you both.
As I told Ed, my Uncle Gene Cole married Anita Corso. According to Gene he first saw Anita when she was working at a "soda fountain" in California. He became a "drug store cowboy" until she agreed to go out with him. Anita's brother Phil told me that their father was not pleased when Gene asked Anita to marry him because Gene was Protestant. Phil said he told his father "Gene is the son of Dick Cole who works at the bank and you know what kind of man he is." Then he asked his father if he knew of any Catholic boys in California he would want in the family. I guess that convinced Mr Corso to approve of the marriage. No slight to Phil but I suspect Mr Corso figured Anita would pick her own life partner no matter what he wanted.
Anita was a very classy, sweet person but she was also a very strong lady. She was also, as was Josephine and Ed says Pauline as well, an exceptional cook.
I last visited Gene and Anita about a year before he died and they still were very much in love. The respect they showed for each other was grand to see.
Last summer I was driving to Howe cemetery. Mt Calvary is in the same area so I stopped there as well and found several Ferrere grave markers. Mt Calvary cemetery is listed as being in Coal Center, Washington Co. From the grave markers, census records and Mrs Corso's obituary I have this much on the Ferrere family.
Fillipo and Anna Ferrere
Pauline (1891 – 1994) – married Joseph Cappalonga – one child Nancy
Josephine (1893 – 1967) married Antonio Corso – children Vincent, Phillip and Anita
Mary – married ? Poletz
could be this family
1930 census Roscoe Borough, Washington Co., Pa April 2 Corwin St
Joseph Poletz 54 md at 19 Ita-Ita-Ita emi 1899 merchant - confectionary store
Mary wife 49 md at 15 Ita-Ita-Ita emi 1901
Frank son 17 Pa-Ita-Ita
Pauline dau 15 Pa-Ita-Ita
There is a grave marker for Filippo and Anna Ferrere. I believe these are Pauline's parents. Felippo is 65480215 and Anna is 65497237 on FindAGrave if you want to make a relationship connection.
Others at Mt Calvary that may be relatives:
Edigio (1893-1960) and Vincenza Ferrere Angeli ( 1886 – 1966)
Phillip Ferrere 1907 – 1952
Albino (1888-1974) and Giovanna Ferrero (1901-1948)
How are these people related or not related. Who else was in ihe family of Fillipo and Anna and am I right in assuming they are the parents?
If you are interested and do not already have them, I have census records for the Corso and Cappalonga families in California, Pa and some news clippings and Mrs Corso's Obituary.
One last thing. My sister in law was in a sorority at California. Mrs Corso (Josephine) was the house mother for that sororiety. I will attach some photos to the email to Ed.
Would you by chance be related to the Cappalongas?Bill Cole
