This photo is one of my
Grandfather Zuccaro and his two brothers. It was taken in either
Alliance or Lisbon, Ohio, on the same day as the wedding photo of Anna
and Giuseppe (1903). Depicted
(l to r) are: Giovanni (John) Zuccaro (1884-1962), Giuseppe (Joe)
Zuccaro (1875-1950), and Sebastiano (Sebastian) Zuccaro (1876-1960).
Their only other sibling, sister Maria (Mary) Zuccaro (1879-1962)
is missing from the photo since she and her husband, Salvatore Felecia,
have not yet immigrated from Termini.
||This photo is
my paternal grandfather, Giuseppe (Joseph) Zuccaro, taken in 1903,
shortly before he and his brothers changed the spelling of the family
surname to "Zucchero." The picture was taken in either
Alliance or Lisbon, Ohio, and my grandfather would have been 28 years
old at the time. He had already established himself in his own
produce business and was quite proud of his growing prosperity only five
years after his immigration to the USA from Termini-Imerese, Sicily.
This is a wedding photo of my
paternal grandparents, Anna Pusateri Zuccaro (1882-1926) and Giuseppe
Zuccaro (1875-1950). They were married in Termini Imerese, Sicily,
on November 8, 1902. However, I have cause to believe that this
picture was taken in either Alliance or Lisbon, Ohio, sometime in early 1903,
after Joseph returned to the USA with his bride and her parents.
Pusateri Family Lineage
This is a 1913
family photo of the Joseph Zucchero family of Alliance, Ohio. The
parents, Joseph and Anna, were both born in Termini-Imerese, Sicily, but
all of their children were born in Ohio, USA. In the front are:
Jasper James Zucchero (b. 1907); Sebastian (Frank) Zucchero (b.
1912) on the lap of the father Joseph; Rose Zucchero (b. 1911); and
Antonina (Lena) Zucchero (b. 1910). Standing in the rear are:
Peter Joseph Zucchero (b. 1904), my father; and the mother Anna.
Two more children would be added to the family after this portrait
was taken: Joseph Zucchero (b. 1915) and John F. Zucchero (b. 1919).
photo was taken in 1915 in
Termini. Depicted are one
set of my paternal great-grandparents: Antonina Passafiume
Pietro Zuccaro (1845-1930). They left Termini in 1922 to live the
their lives in Alliance, Ohio.
