St. Mary's Cemetery in Marion, Ohio
When hubby and I travel, I almost always visit an interesting cemetery. You learn so much about differently areas of the country, or other cultures if not in the U.S.
Did a little research and found Domenico immigrated here in September of 1921 on the San Giorgio ship from Naples Italy to the port in New York before settling in Marion, Ohio. His parents were Diego and Pellonia (Pisane) Sansotta. He was born in Cimina, Italy. He lived to be 86. I have his last address noted and hope to be able to photograph the house this interesting Italian Immigrant lived in. He was an American Citizen. I think I would like to have known this interesting man.
Related some of this to people who live in Marion, I also learned that Marion had a very strong and rich Italian history...I didn't know that before I took these photographs in St. Mary's Cemetery.
