Gravestone Photo Permission
I am happy to see that you photographed the gravestone of Carolyn Alford Palmer in Restvale Cemetery (Memorial# 156349647).

I would like to add this gravestone photo to the (non-profit) Alford American Family Association's collection of New York Obituaries, where her obituary is (or will be) included. You can see the current collection at

May I have your permission to include your gravestone photos? If so, the photo caption will say:

Photo from [cemetery name, city, county, state]—
Permission granted by the photographer, Tony D [or your full name if you prefer]

And thanks so much for your gravestone photo work!

Best regards,
Pamela Alford Thompson (Find A Grave #47195155)

RE: 158159009 Brienza
Hi Tony,
Well I believe we are then cousins not sure exactly... but my grandmother was Gerarda Brienza (1905-1970)...We have more information on her mother Francesca Cerrata from Calitri but how we tie in I think is her father was Giacomo Brienza born 1880? and died in Rionero in Vulture, his father was Michele (1865-1910 - Rionero) who married Genoveffa Nella. I have a Gerardo as the father of Michele and then I have Canio, etc. as you do but I didn't have dates, so that is awesome... I also didn't have all the wife's names.
So i'm in MA and you are in NY I see... interesting... have you been to Italy? I grew up there... I went a few years ago to Rionero in Vulture, but didn't have enough time to research as well as I would have liked to.
Your cousin a few times removed,

Mistrelli Cerniglia
I know they have different grave markers, but is there any chance Vincenzo Vincent Cerniglia and Antonio Mistrelli Cerniglia could be the same person? They have the same birth and death years as each other. I am researching Antonio Mistrelli Cerniglia 1883-1959. I know he used many different names. In 1959 he widowed Rosa L Cerniglia 1908-1987. I know he had an earlier wife but I do not know who she is. Could the first wife be Felicia Cerniglia 1883-1946 and he was usng the name Vincenzo? This Felicia's mother's name was Augusta Mistrilli (I just discovered) and Antonia is using the name Mistrelli along with Cerniglia.

I am trying to discover how the name Mistrelli relates to Cerniglia as in the Antonio Mistrelli Cerniglia 1883-1959 findagrave site. I see you have separate headstones with these each of these names photographed together. Can you explain to me how these names relate? I find no Mistrelli listed in that St Columbkille cemetery but I do find five Cerniglia's. Thank you!
