Another city that keeps showing up as I trace relatives from San Pietro Avellana is Ogden, UT.

Wilberta Illig told me about a web site that contains many scanned birth and death records from Utah. It is the Utah Hstory Research Center,  Archives and Library . I've searched that site for people who lived in Ogden (including the Salt Lake City area) and added what I could find to his web page.

Frazzini and Bros. Saloon

An interesting note: I've found references in Ellis Island records of people going to these addresses:

        c/o Bank, Prospero Frazzini, 200-260 25th Street Ogden, UT
        200 - 60 - 25th St, Ogden, Utah.
        256 25th St, Ogden, UT

This is very similar to what I found for people going to Denver - many, many people from SPA going to the address of Prospero's Bank and store on 15th Street in Denver, CO.

In Oct of 2005, I took a trip to Ogden to visit 25th Street to see what I could see. I was quite surprised. The building at the 256-260 25th Street address was still there. Here is a photo of the building. If you click on the photo, you will get a large panoramic view of the entire block.



260 25th Street is the storefront with the green façade on the right end of the building. Number 256 is the storefront on left end of the building. On the front of the building was a plaque indicating that the building was listed on the National Register of Historic Places.

I am a fiber artist from North Logan Utah.

I would like permission to use your photo for an art piece.  I would give the photographer credit for the photo. I have been selected to be the featured artist at the annual Summerfest Faire in Logan, Cache Valley, Utah this June and will be showing a lot of Northern Utah places

I usually do a small piece prior to doing a larger art work on silk. I am giving this one to my son who has a commercial real estate company in Ogden.  I did bring in another background photo with clouds.

Done on silk or cotton. Link to article

Thank you   Lucy Peterson Watkins

I also noticed that Michael Riche's uncle, Telesforo Ricci, married Mariantonia Frazzino, daughter of Filipangelo Frazzino. Any relation to you? Michael Riche had a hotel called Montana Rooms on 25th street likely on the same block as Prospero Frazzini bank, right in the area of the picture on the website.

My grandfather worked there as a boy during the time of Spanish Flu when a lot of the guests would die there, and he would have to carry them out. We heard a lot of stories about the colorful history of that part of Ogden. The Riche's also had a grocery store right there.

(Mark's note: you can read the entire email below)




Here is what it says:


Union Restaurant and Switch European Lodgings

One of the oldest and least disturbed buildings in the 25th Street Historic District
is this two-story brick vernacular store built in 1888. The simply corbeled cornice and
segmentally arched window bays with stone keys are the only attempts at decoration.

A multitude of ethnic enterprises have occupied the building over the years.
Among its occupants were, the Union Restaurant, the Ying Kee Company, Barsotti
Confectioners, the Frazzini & Bros. Saloon, Mary Martin's Ritz Rooms, and the Sunrise
Cafe.

Businesses operated continuously in this building from 1888 to 1979. It was
restored in 1984.

Here is 200 25th Street. Its the redish corner building. This is the northeast corner of 25th Street and Lincoln Ave. Number 260 is on the corner to the left.




From the Standard Examiner, Ogden, UT  15 Aug 1900 (found by Wilberta Illig at http://content.lib.utah.edu/cgi-bin/advsearch.exe). This articles describes the piece of property at the corner of Lincoln and 25th Street (200 25th Street ) and the property they already own at 260 25th Street:



At the end of 25th Street is Union Station - continuing the Italian link in the West to the railroads.

Mark,
Thanks for the all the SPA info.!  I especially enjoyed the new photo on your website of 260 25th Street, Ogden Utah. This is also the destination address my grandfather Amico Morelli gave on the 1908 Ellis Island ship records. In addtion to what you found, my mother Mary tells me that Mike &  Bettina (sp?) Richie (who were also from San Pietrio Avellana) had a grocery store on 25 th Street, (around this time?). Latter, they owned a Italian restaraunte called: "Riche's" located on Washington Blvd, in Ogden. My Mother said their children's names were Tom, Edward & Udean (sp?). The Riche's were friends of my ancesters. (I believe you have a picture of Michael Riche's (born May 8 1876?) headstone in your Utah cemetary pictures).

Your amci,
Bob Morrison
Irvine, Ca
In Jun of 2006, Bob sent me this photo:
St Joseph's Church, 24th Street, Ogden, Utah

"This is the only Catholic Church in Ogden, when Sabatino and Grandpa Amico (Mike) Morelli lived here. This is also the church my parents, Richard and Mary Morrison, were married in. And is the church that I was baptised in."


Ogden City Cemetery

 In Jan of 2005, I took a trip to Ogden to visit the cemetery. I had already found references to possible cousins buried there.

I stopped at the cemetery office and found out that there was a web site that listed everyone buried there. The information is taken from the written records of the cemetery. You need Internet Explorer to view the web site correctly (Mozilla and Firefox did not work for me). The web site address is http://ims.ogdencity.com/cemetery/default.asp .



I spent time on the web site and at the cemetery, searching for the sampietresi names that I had seen in the microfilmed records from San Pietro Avellana (SPA).

Here is what I found, including photos of tombstomes that were still there. The information in each table is exactly as it is in the Ogden City Cemetery data base on the web. I've noted corrections and additions that I made. Many tombstones were missing. Where I found a tombstone, a photo is included. If I found the person in the SPA microfilms from the LDS Family History Center, I included that information.

Of these people, three are cousins - Faustino Frazzini, Baby Frazzini and Andrea Labate.



Here is the area where I found many sampietrese. Along the curb are Baby Riche, Domenico diPierro, Tom Riche, Gloria Morelli, and Amico diLorenzo. The next row back are Micheal and Elizabeth (diPierro) Riche and Faustino Frazzini. Closeups and details are below. Also buried in this section (Annex 10-17) are Domenico della Croce and Baby diSanza. Their tombstones are missing.

"Although they were married in Denver Colorado, their familles were from villages only 4 miles apart in Italy: (The Morelli's: San Pietro Avellana & Lombardi's: Paglironi / San Michele). I recently got a copy of their Marraige Certificate, from Aunt Lucy & Uncle Michael of Ogden Utah."

Camillia Acker posted this on an ancestry.com message board:
Looking for any information on Donata Sabatino who married Sabatino "Sam" Morelli in Italy in the late 1880's. They had 3 children: Amico "Mike", Dellata and Lucia. Amico was born July 23, 1891 in San Pietro Avellana, Italy.

Sam worked as a handyman in Italy but came to Canada 1891 then to Utah 1892 to work on the railroad until 1898. He returned to Italy and died in 1934 or 1935.

Donata was not able to enter the US because she had asthma. She died in Italy (probably San Pietro Avellana) during WWI.
I have been in contact with Camillia. She runs the Morelli web site that I linked to above. From information below, I believe that Donata's family name is also Morelli.

Here is an email I received in 2003:

Hello Mark,

I received your letter today regarding a cousin of your mother's father Emiliano Frazzini.  I do not know of any diLorenzo's that came to Minnesota prior to my family arriving here (from Denver) around 1960.  BUT, I was interested to see in your family tree that the Frazzini family was from Campobasso.

My grandfather, Alexander DiLorenzo, came to the US sometime between 1910 - 1920 when he was a teenager, putting him in the same age category as Carmine diLorenzo and your grandfather.  He came from Campobasso to New York he ended up in Denver where most of my aunts, uncles and cousins are now.  I know Alexander came over with some relatives but had little contact when they came to the USA.  Seems like there may be some sort of connection! Alexander died about 15 years ago and his wife Frances (Mauro) died about 8 years ago.

You may have also contacted my brothers Kevin, Brian and Kirk, all in Minnesota.  My mother Carole is also here.  My father Gilbert died in 1986.

For your reference, here is just some of my family tree back in the Denver area, Alexander and Frances' children.
     Raymond DiLorenzo
     Sandra Durand (DiLorenzo)
     Bernice Perry (DiLorenzo) - deceased

My grandfather Michael Riche (Michele Ricci) also was born in San Pietro, Avalon, Campobasso, Abruzzi, Italy. He was born on May 8, 1877 and came to America in the early 1890's.
His father was Alesondra Ricci and his mother  was Magnifeca De Giocono. I know of 2 other brothers, Tom and Umberto however  there may have been other siblings. It is my understanding that Tom also came to America.
My grandfather came to Ogden, Utah and married Barcella Jones. Their children were Alexander Floyd (my father), Flora (Florence), and Michele John.  He later married Elizabeth Di Pierro and their children were Amico Domenico  (Tom),
Leunora Paolina (Eleanor), Udine and Ed.
Is it possible that our  Ricci's may be cousins. I would appreciate any help or direction that you could  give me.
I sent Barbara an email.

Dear Mark,
I would like to begin by thanking you for all the work you have done and for making it available on your website.  What a joy it was to find so many wonderful references to my family history.  I had planned for some time to write and thank you.  I found your website earlier this year when I was doing some random searching for Ricci and Utah.  It was thrilling to see the pictures at the cemetery and to find so much information.  I realized then that I had been in the site before looking for my Dad's cousin Fred of Ely, Nevada but at the time I missed the Ogden connection.

My Dad, Alexander Floyd Richie (Ricci) was Michele's oldest son by his first marriage to Barcella Jones.  I am his oldest daughter and my birth certificate was issued with the name Ricci although Dad used the Richie name most of his adult life.  His brother Jack (Michele John) changed his name to Ritchie and my grandfather and his younger sons by his marriage to Elizabeth Di Pierro changed to Riche. 

My Dad, his brother Jack and sister Flora have all passed away but his half brothers Tom and Ed are still living.  Uncle Tom is still in Ogden.

My Dad lived with us in his last years.  At that time I was still working and didn't take the time to listen and record his wonderful memories.  He was fortunate to have a great recall of growing up in Utah and all of the friends and family he knew.

I grew up in Susanville, California in a community with many Italian families.  Mark and I bought our house where all of our immediate neighbors were Italian and most had known me since I was a child.  They were all good friends of my Dad and Mother and were thoughtful and caring neighbors.  Most had worked with my Dad in the lumber mill.
I hope to find some time this Fall to put my notes in my history file.  I want to put together a history for my children, grandchildren and the great grands.  Also I want to send my Uncle Tom copies of the wonderful research you have done.

As fate would have it, I'm also researching my grandson's other family line which included Carlo Mazzoni.  I am looking for the tie to Adamo Mazzoni who died in the mine disaster in 1913 who may be Carlo's father.  Carlo's mother, Domenica, remarried Pete Ragni and was living in the Colfax area in 1930.  This genealogy  search is so exciting for me and I don't think I'll ever get tired of it. I do so wish that I had started when my folks were living so I would have their memories.

Mark and I live in Caldwell, Idaho and all of our children and grandchildren and great grands are within a 30 mile radius so we are making some great memories.  We just returned from a trip to the Yankee Fork of the Salmon River and in June we spent a month at Henry's Lake.  Mark is an avid fly fisherman and loves those waters.

I feel like I know you through your web site and feel as though your have given us such insight into the families of SPA.

Thank you again for the help you have given so many and for contacting me through GenForum this week.

     Love,
     Barbara

Barbara,

Thanks for the email.

A fellow researcher from Pittsburgh had seen your postings on genforum and told me about them. I knew you were someone I had to get in contact with.

My research into my family (mostly Frazzini and Carlini), has spread far and wide so now I try to document any family from San Pietro Avellana (sampietrese) that I come across. I know now that everyone from SPA is related - so someday, I'll connect us all together.

Fred Ricci of Ely was a pallbearer at the funeral of my grand uncle Felix Carlini. I'm in email contact with Silvana Ricci, Fred's daughter - I've copied her on this email.

In my search in Ogden, I found that the cemetery plot of Domenico della Croce was purchased by "Thos Riche".Do you know anything about him?

About the Mazzoni's and Ragni's in Dawson - I would recommend that you check out the Morman Church's  Family History Center in your area. They have the microfilmed records from St. John the Baptist Church which cover the period from about 1917 to 1950. You most likely will find Baptism, Marriage and Death records there.

May I use your email on my web site? I'd like to add it to the Ogden page with your grandfather's tombstone.

Ciao.

Another question - you mentioned in your posting on Genforum that Michele and Elisabetta had a child named Udine (along with Tom, Ed and Eleanor). In the Ogden cemetery, there is a child of Michele and Elisabetta buried there as "Baby" Riche. Was this Udine?

Dear Mark,

My uncle Udini was born on May 16, 1922 and died in September 1974 of  cancer.  His widow and children live in Boise, Idaho.

My aunt Eleanore was born on March 3, 1918 and died on November 9, 2000. She was married to Tom Gannuscia.  It would appear that Baby Riche died before being named.  My Dad's cousin Fiore Ricci died in Murray, Utah on March 12, 1984.

Thank you for connecting me to Silvana.  I had lost her address.  It was great to hear from her. You are welcome to use my email on your web site.  This has certainly been an exciting search for me.

Your research has been such a gift to so many.

Dear Mark,
Your website continues to give so many of us such great pleasure.  Your emails to Michael added yet more information.

In his Nov. 3 email, he wrote of his grandfather Amedio De Pierro, a brother to my grandmother Elizabeth  Some years ago, my cousin Marcia, sent me a copy of a letter written by Amedio and Hazel after the death of my uncle Michele John (Jack).  It is a beautiful memory of 2 boys growing up and I would love to send copies to you and Mike.

Also I have a picture of my grandfather Michael and my Dad taken around 1900 and a picture taken in 1939 in Ogden with Michael, Elizabeth and my uncles.  I'm sure I have more in my mountain of picture boxes.

Again, heartfelt thanks for all of your work.

Dear Mark,

Found these pictures in one of my folders and thought I would try to send them to you.  My knowledge is very limited when it comes to scanning and adjusting pictures for the email transmission.


The picture of the groceteria was taken in 1939 (I think) and my Dad, Alexander Floyd is standing beside my uncle Udine.

The picture of Dad and his brother Jack was taken in California.
Jack was usually called Johnny and Dad was called Alex by the family in Utah.

I continue to be so delighted with all the information that you have put together about the people from SPA.  I made a copy of the Ogden portion to take to my uncle Tom in Ogden.

I hope to have some time this summer to go through my boxes of pictures and put them into some kind of organization but truly doubt if that will happen in my lifetime.

Again, I can't thank you enough for your efforts that are enjoyed by so many.

In Nov of 2005, I got an email from Michael DePierro. As you can read below, Mike is the great-grandson of Domenico diPierro and Filomena Fraini.

Mark,

I, by coincidence, found the website with photos of the Ogden, Utah cemetery.
http://www.silogic.com/genealogy/Ogden,%20UT.html

It was a wonderful surprise to see the photos of the grave markers that I visited every Memorial Day growing up. I am related to many of the people whose grave markers are shown. My grandfather knew many of the others very well. My grandfather is Amedio DePierro, brother of Elizabeth D. Ricci (DePierro). He emigrated from San Pietro Avellana as an eight-year-old with Elizabeth. They were held in Ellis Island for two weeks and nearly sent back to Italy before they got the necessary paper work from Michael Riche, who was close to my grandpa's father, Domenico DePierro. Michael later married Elizabeth and several of their children still live in the Ogden area. Domenico worked for the railroad as did my grandfather, Amedio. They worked at Union Station so it was nice to see that photo as well.

DePierro family tradition has long been to eat on special occasions at Ligori's, a popular Ogden Pizza restaurant. I believe the Morelli's, who are mentioned on your site, owned the restaurant at one time and maybe still do. My grandfather was close to the Morelli family. The immigrants from San Pietro were a very tight-knit group for a long time. My father, Amedio Jr. DePierro now lives in Clearfield, Utah and will be very happy to see your website. He also visited San Pietro Avellana, but that was about forty years ago. You mentioned you found many "sampietrese" in the area of the cemetery where we both have family buried. What does that word mean? Do you know of any contact of the Frazzinis with the Morellis, Riches, or DePierros? I appreciate the work you've done on the site and am interested in learning more about my family history and others who emigrated from San Pietro.

Thank You
Michael DePierro

Michael,

Thanks for your email. Its always great to hear from someone connected to the sampietrese that I've found.

"sampietrese" are people from San Pietro Avellana. Kind of like Iowans are people from Iowa.

My Frazzini web site started out just being about my family but it really has grown. When I started to see the connection from SPA to the railroads in the western US, I was intrigued. Now I document any sampietrese that I find. Of course, I've attracted a lot of people like you who are descendant from those Italians who sacrificed for their children and grandchildren.

Next time I am in Ogden, I will have lunch at Ligori's. (note: 4421 Harrison Blvd. S, Ogden and 2798 N 400 West, Layton) BTW, if you follow the Morelli link on my web page, you will find a lot about that family. I am still looking for direct evidence that my Frazzini's knew all these others. I'm sure they did - it was a close knit community of Italians. Its just hard to find direct evidence.

If you know of siblings of Amedio? I had found, along with Elisabeth, a Camillo Pasquale diPierro. Do you know where Amedio is buried?

May I use your email on my website? Many people would be interested in reading what you wrote. Do you have any photos of Elisabeth or Mike Riche? I'd be interested in any photos you would be willing to share with the world.

Did you see my Graphical Trees for Ogden, UT and Ely, NV - they show all the family connections that I've dig up so far.

Ciao.
Mark
Mark,

The graphical trees are great! My mom, dad, and I were up really late last night on the phone about this. Turns out that my grandpa was close friends  with Amico "Mike" Morelli and his wife Pauline. Their son, Mike, and his wife, Lucy own two Ligori's Pizza and spaghetti restaurants in Utah. We used to eat there often. If you go to the Layton, Utah Ligori's (15 minutes from Ogden) you are likely to meet Lucy Morelli. She is often the hostess. They also own the Ligori's in South Ogden. From the family trees, it appears you and Morelli's share Giusto Frazzini as a common ancestor. Giusto's son, Filippo was Amico's (Mike's) great grandfather.

It was much later that DePierro's entered the picture but they were good friends with Morelli's who descended from your Frazzini line.

I also noticed that Michael Riche's uncle, Telesforo Ricci, married Mariantonia Frazzino, daughter of Filipangelo Frazzino. Any relation to you? Michael Riche had a hotel called Montana Rooms on 25th street likely on the same block as Prospero Frazzini bank, right in the area of the picture on the website. My grandfather worked there as a boy during the time of Spanish Flu when a lot of the guests would die there, and he would have to carry them out. We  heard a lot of stories about the colorful history of that part of Ogden. The Riche's also had a grocery store right there.

I noticed that Elizabeth and Michael Riche both descended from diGiacomo's, Emilia and Magnifica. This could possibly make them first cousin's once removed. Would like to find more on them. I want to trace these guys back. I'm interested in learning this detective game. How did you find all these people?

As far as pictures go, we'll work on getting some to you of Michael and Elizabeth Riche. My parents believe they have some but can also contact their children living in Ogden. We certainly could get you pictures of Amedio DePierro, who came from SPA. He is buried in Lindquist Cemetery which is located on 44th-46th Washington Blvd in Ogden. My father and likely my grandfather weren't aware of Baby Riche being Mike and Elizabeth's child. We're curious about who that person was.

My dad says Elizabeth and Camillo Pasquale DiPierro were the only siblings of my grandfather. Camillo died in Italy and never came over. We didn't know his middle name was Pasquale. How did you find this? It was interesting b/c one of my grandpa's good friend was named Pasquale. Common Italian name I suppose?

That's fine if you post the email.Once again, we love what you've done with the website.

Mike Depierro
Mike,

I was looking through my notes and I found that I seen your grandfather's obituary in the The Salt Lake Tribune. At the time I could not place him in my tree since it didn't mention his parents names.

Answers to some of your questions:

My data comes from four main sources:
    1. microfilmed birth/marriage/death records from SPA dating from 1809 to 1899. These are available through the LDS Church's Family History Centers.
    2. Public records on the Internet (ancestry.com, rootsweb.com and familysearch.com)
    3. emails I get from others
    4. legwork

For research hints, look at this web page: http://www.silogic.com/genealogy/Hints.html

I do not know how Filipangelo Frazzino is related. He was born in 1801 per the birth record of Mariantonia Frazzino. Since the microfilmed birth records don't cover that early year, I can't trace him back any further.

I found Camillo Pasquale diPierro in the SPA birth microfilms. The data is on my Ogden page.

The next time that I am in Ogden, I will visit your grandfather's grave.

Photos of any of these people would be great. You may have noticed that I received a bunch of photos from Johnny Rauzy who is a Colaizzi descendent.

I get to the SLC area once or twice a year as my wife's daughter and her family live in Syracuse, UT.

Mike, I'm sending a copy of this email to Barbara Roberts and Silvana Ricci, both connected to your family tree.

Ciao
Mark

Colaizzi

In April of 2005, I got an email from the grandson of Oreste and Lucia Colaizzi. Johnny Rauzi sent me some photos and historical information which I've added below. Johnny wrote "There are a number of Italian families that settled into the Ogden Valley. I am a member of the Trentini Club, we have a whole book of family history and pictures.  In the early 90's we hosted the international meeting here in Ogden. Most of the Italians in the valley were farmers and now only a small handful of their children still farm".

Gasbarro

The Gasbarro family name is from Castel di Sangro, not far from SPA.

CALULLO, MARIA KELTON, UT

Now I stumbled on something really interesting. I searched Ellis Island for Adele Gasbarro which I had not done before. I found her and her mother Maria Catullo coming to the US in 1904. She arrived on 8 Jun 1904. Here are the records:
Petrarca, Giuseppe      M      32y      M      Italy Italian      Castel di Sangro
notation: son-in-law, going to father-in-law Lorenzo Gasbarro,
c/o Bank, Prospero Frazzini, 200-260 25th Street Ogden, UT

Catullo, Maria         F     44y     M     Italy Italian     Castel di Sangro
notation: mother-in-law, going to husband Lorenzo Gasbarro,
c/o Bank, Prospero Frazzini, 200-260 25th Street Ogden, UT

Gasbarro, Adele     F     17y     S     Italy Italian     Castel di Sangro
notation: daughter
So this Lorenzo is the brother of Adele Gasbarro Frazzini whose unnamed child is also buried here in Ogden. Father is Lorenzo Gasbarro and the mother is Maria Catullo. I learned from Carol Frazzini Elliott (through a posting in my guestbook) that Adele's sister Virgina married Giuseppe Petrarca.

You can look at the death certificate. I don't think this family is from SPA.

Here is another Mariani that I found in Salt Lake City.

He was born in Utah and was 6 months old. The DC lists father as Charles Mariano and mother as Mary E. Carlan (possibly Carlini). So there is a chance this is a SPA family.

I've been able to find more Mariani death certificates and I've matched them up using the street address 865 Pacific Avenue, Salt Lake City. This showed that "Charles" Mariano was Pasquale Mariani and Mary Carlan was Maria Carlini, daughter of Pietro Carlini and Rosa Mariani.

=====================
For these names, I did not find any entries in the Ogden City Cemetery data base:

Iasella   d'Achille    Zaccagnini    Diullo    Iannacchione

Mountain View Cemetery

This is another cemetery in Ogden. I've found reference to one person from SPA buried here. She is Asterina Frazzini (also known as Francina Esterina Frazzini) who married Pietro diGiacomo (search on "Frizzini" on the LDS web site). I stopped at the cemetery in Oct 2005 but could not locate the tombstone even with the help of the office staff.

Asterina was Pietro's first wife. She died in 1903 shortly after the birth of her fifth child in five years. She is in my family tree data base - she is my 3rd cousin, 3 times removed.

Today, Mountain View Cemetery is part of the Aultorest Memorial Park.
