Dear Families,
My grandparents are Vescios from Falerna, Italy in Calabria. My grandfather's name was Dominico Vescio and my grandmother was born Concetta Trunzo and later adopted by the Mendicino family. The Campisano family from Falerna were cousins and married into our family. They immigrated in the late 1800's to Pennsylvannia. Unfortunately their last name was changed by accident to Vish when a teacher could not understand my aunt's Italian accent and wrote Vish instead of Vescio. She was the first of 14 and the name stuck. My grandparents passed away with the name of Vescio but my father and his siblings have the name Vish. It has never been legally changed but I am the second generation of Vish's. We presently live in Pa, Kentucky, Georgia, North Carolina, Florida, Kansas, and I am sure I have left out some places. I would love to hear from you as we are trying to organize a reunion in Falerna, Italy in the next two years or so. If anyone knows of places to stay in Falerna please let me know. Sincerely, Ann C. DePierro
