What are the names of your great-grandparents? What do you know about their lives?
I don't know my father's side of the family.
On my mother's side: my grandmother's mom was Rose Checkler, from Siscily, married Mitchell Delaney (from Ireland). She came through Ellis Island where they butchered her maiden name (I don't know what it was). She had five kids, and married twice, and was a sweet woman, and a great mother.
My grandfather's mother was from Adrano, Siscily: Victoria Cammarata - her family owned a pasta factory, lol. They were well off financially. She met my grandfather's dad in Siscily (Angelo Ciervo), but preceeded him here through Philadelphia when she was 16 (he came through Ellis Island later). She married three times, my grandfatehr was the 3rd of her 11 children (Angelo's first child). She was the only grandparent I knew; she lived to 96 and died about 10 year ago.
