- View SourceHi,Paul and David Pezza are my first cousins along with their sister Beatrice. Thier mother, my Aunt Ann (Annuziata) just celebrated her 90th birthday. Raymond, Joseph, Jack, Antonio and Ann are our 2nd Cousin. Their father Jack (Giochino) was first cousin to my father and my Uncle August who was Paul, David and Bea's father. We all grew up in Knightsville. If you grew up with Paul and David then you must be around my brother Frank (Francis) and Peter's age. But we spent time in South America where I was born. We all went to St. Mary's.Greg Pezza

My mother Elenor (Pezza) Livoli, is a daughter of Euleria Pezza that my cousin Gregory Pezza explains below. Paul and David Pezza are our first cousins, whose father, August Pezza, was a son of Euleria Pezza. Since you went to St. Mary’s School with Ray Pezza’s older brother Antonio, you may have gone to school with David and Paul’s sister, Beatrice (Pezza) Flynn.
Joe Pezza is Greg’s father, another son of Euleria Pezza. Rounding out the siblings are Mike Pezza and the late Maria (Simone) Pezza. Don’t forget, Pietro Paolo Pezza was our grandfather. A male figure was needed in the equation.
Our grandfather’s brother (I think Francesco) was the figure head in the Pezza family that started the Park Ave. Cement Block Co. Jack Pezza was his son. Jack Pezza was the father of Raymond Pezza (attorney), Antonio Pezza (President of Park Ave. Cement Block) and Joseph Pezza (orthodontist). Lou, how can you not remember Tony Pezza? Truly, unforgettable and one of a kind!!!! LOL

There are also many Pezza's (from Knightsvile) in Cranston, Rhode
Island. I grew up with neighborhood friends Paul Pezza and his
brother David Pezza. I also went grammer school "St Mary's School"
in Cranston, Rhode Island with a Raymond Pezza and his older brother
whose name I cannot remember.

- View SourceGregory....In the process of looking/rereading the group for a specific message, I've just noticed that your friend Leo's father is from Formia -- that would be where my uncle 'Tony' Petrone came from. Upon arriveing in America, he first in upstate NY (Redhook) then later moved to the Queens, New York area where the family remained till he passed away. His wife's maiden name was 'Jennie' Ciccone - they had four daughters and 2 sons.Jennie Ciccone and my grandmother, Elvira Ciccone (both also from Formia) were sisters.I'm wondering if Leo's father (Antonio Petrone) and my uncle (Anthony Petrone) could be cousins. Also, it's VERY possible that either or, or both the Danbury, CT & Brooklyn, NY Ciccones are connected to my Queens, NY relatives....I was born in Brooklyn and we often spent summers at a lake just 20 minutes from Danbury, CT.Any info will be greatly appreciated.Many Thanks,Renata Pezzella Young

Hi,There are many Ciccone's in Rhode Island. My Grandmother Euleria Pezza was a Ciccone. My Uncle Barry Ciccone and Aunt Irma (Ciccone) Delbove are from Itri and settled in Cranston, Rhode Island. As for Petrone's. I will call my friend Leo Petrone also from Cranston. His father is Antonio Petrone from Formia. In fact that is his license plate. On a sad note, Luigi DelBove, my Aunt Irma's son, passed away this week at the age of 39. He and I were working on our Ciccone side.There is a Ciccone connection in Danbury, CT. and Brooklyn, NY.Talk to you later,Gregory Pezza
