Hello to All,

I am seeking information on my Great Grandparents:

Giovanni (John) Ragone/Ragona/Aragona/Argona and
Eugenia Basilli/Basili

They came to America in 1904/04 and settles in Pittston, Luzerne Co., PA.

They had nine children:
Joseph b. 1906 (married a Rose Turca)
Rocco b. 1908 (my grandfather)
Domenico/Dominick b. 1910 (?)
Consalata/Concetta/Connie b. 1912 (married Paul Arcudi)
Francesco/Frank b. 1913 (died in a mining accident abt 1949)
Carmella b. 1917
Maria/marie b. 1910 (?) (marred Charles Turca, Rose's brother
Caterina/Catherine b. 1921 (married Charles Serino)
Savanna/Jenny b. 1924 ( married ?? Fonzo)

My great Uncle Frank died in a mining accident abt 1949 in the Red Ash Vein, Kehow berge Coal Co.

I believe that my great grandfather was born in the Reggio Calabria regoin of Italy, unsure of my great grandmothers birth area.
If any one has any information about any of these people, please e-mail me.

Thank you all so very much for your time,

Laurie (Daignault) Vanover
