with apologies to Patty for taking so long to post this - I got swamped by life and haven't added photos for over 3 months!
My grandpa is the oldest brother at top right. His name was Guiseppe Pasquale. He was about 16 in the picture, His sister next left & 12. Flora is 10 & standing in front of Jean. And the baby is Salvatore (Sam) & he's 8. My great grandparents (the parents of these children) came over to New York's Ellis Island in, I think, 1907. They met on the boat; she was 14 & he was in his early 20's. We think he was a stowaway because he wasn't listed on the passenger list but is listed getting off at Ellis Island right above Great-Grandma's family. Hmmmm. Anyway my grandpa was born in 1912 so this picture is from the 1920's. And there was another child (boy) who was either stillborn or died in infancy, not sure which, born before Jean. My great-grandfather died when my grandpa was 12. So Great-Grandma had to go to work in upstate NY in the factories & her mother took care of the children. If you want anything else just let me know.
