Catherine (McGarvey) Dougherty’s brother in the white cap came to America in the 1970’s.

Hi Martin,
Attached are some photos from my recent trip to Donegal-
From Margaret

Carrick cnon fola

I think the hill in the background of your photo is Cnoc Fola – it’s the only hill in the Carrick / Derrybeg area that’s fairly close. The Derryveagh mountains (including Muckish) are miles away and have a very distinctive profile.
Photos below were taken in Carrick and show Cnoc Fola in the background.

Old St Mary’s church, Derrybeg _ where all our McGarvey ancestors were baptized and married. This church was the scene of a great flood in August 1880 – 5 people drowned at Mass including my great grandmother Grace McGarvey

Irisha or Italiano – The Iacone Family – Mmary Iacone’s Relatives and Friends No 15 – October 16, 2017

This is a combined effort to capture Dominick’s wife, Mary (Vitrano) Iacone’s family and a lot of wedding pictures that were in the picture collection. mary’s family consisted of Rose and Leonard Vitrano. The siblings consisted of Mary, Josephine, Edward and Fran Vitrano.

Most of the pictures on this page were taken on the roof of the home on the lower east side of Manhattan.

The little girl in the first picture is Dolores Vitrano and is the daughter of Fran and Dolores (Manghise) Vitrano. the small wedding picture on the fifth row below is that of Dolores and Fran Vitrano.

The next picture, a little dark, is that of my in-laws, Dominick Iacone and Mary (Vitrano) Iacone.

Two or three pictures with soldiers are of Edward Vitrano who spent World War II stationed in Hawaii. The black and white wedding picture on the fourth row below is of their daughter, Dolores, who married a Paul Graziano.

The very bottom row has a picture, #2 and #4, of Josephine Vitrano and Murray Roth.

The bottom row, picture #3, is that of Leonard Vitrano, husband of Rose Vitrano.

These are the pictures of the Vitrano family, Mary Vitrano’s family. This is the side of the family that we spent a lot of our time with over the years.

That covers all the rest of the wedding pictures and part of No. 15.

Irisha or Italiano – The Iacone Family – The Astoria, Long Island Years No. 08 – October 16, 2017

It was during the 1950’s that the Iacone family relocated to Astoria, Long Island, New York City. This period is broken down into three section in order to accommodate the number of pictures.

Most of the pictures for this era deal with Mary and Dick and Marie and her brother James. There are several pictures of a brick two family house which I believe was in Brooklyn, New York and was owned by Millie and Dominick Carracciola.
