  1. It's Easter Sunday 2011, and I am showing this blog to Catherine (Teddy) Cicone, Anthony Cicone's niece and Leah Cicone's cousin. This information about the Cicone family and her hometown of Steubenville, Ohio, is making her very happy, and I am gathering obits and other information to submit to your blog. I am Rocco Cicone's great-granddaughter, and knew him until I was 17 years old, when he died in Wilmette, Illinois, just shy of his 100th birthday. I also visited Petterano sul Gizio in 1979. Thanks so much for creating this site.

  2. Thanks to Chuck for this new obituary. They are always very helpful for my research on the Cicone family.
