Your name rings a bell, Donna, I think I ran into you years ago on Teresi message boards. Probably same family as mine. My gg-grandfather, Mariano Teresi, immigrated to NY via Ellis Island some time @ 1900 from Palermo. Unfortunately I don't know much more than that. I've heard he sold flowers & brought his wife, Maria, here later. I don't know if all his children were born here or not. His son, my g-grandfather, was Mario Teresi. My Teresi side has been in the DC/MD area since at least the '30s as far as I know & still are. Wish I could help you more, but all I can do is offer the info I know & see if anything rings a bell for anyone in case it helps them or me somehow. Good Luck, Teresi fam!
