Surnames: Mele, Melo, Aragone, Aragona
My husbands grandparents were from San Giovanni in Fiore, Calabria in Italy. Grandfather, Battista Mele, later changed his last name to Melo. Grandmother, Luisa Aragone/Aragona Mele/Melo.
Battista originally came to Sunnyside, where he and Luisa had 7 children. Only two of those 7 are still living. They later moved to Spring Glenn.
The 5 children who have passed on were Mary,Sam, Angelo, Joe and John.
At one time Battista and Luisa sold goat milk and cheese.
I have heard a story that Battista was accused of murder of a sheepherder who worked for him, but was later cleared. Would love any info about this story, or any other info or stories that might be out there.
Anything would be greatly appreciated. Thanks
Cindy
