James Pannozzi Barry Hamill - Unfortunately only the date of 1940 was on the picture. Margaret Santurri and Julio were my Godparents and my middle name, "Ronald" was chosen by her. I met your grand uncle several times in the 1960's, he was a nice person, very jolly and friendly. I don't know what the occasion of the picture was but I'm fairly certain that the church was St. Matthew's (Elmwood Ave, Cranston). My mother would have known the details but she passed away in 1993.

James Pannozzi Hard worker, did not drive, so she waked the quarter mile to the bus stop on Reservoir Ave., Cranston, near CalArt, twice every day in all kinds of freezing cold weather, from her sister Maria Helen Pannozzi's house on 19 Sabra St. She worked at Banspatch Bakery, and later spent many hours on her feet at Shepherd's Dept. Store in the late 1920's as a sales clerk. Finally in the early 1940's she worked at the physical plant section of the New England Telephone company and retired from that job in April of 1968. She was my Aunt and took me to Child's Restaurant around 1966 to try their Indian pudding which had a unique taste and was served with a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on top. She like the Italian pastries from Federal Hill in Providence, particularly the "Canolis" and "Zeppeli". She also told me much about her ancestors from Termini-Immerse and stories of the coming of the French soldiers during the Napoleonic era - stories which had been told to her by her grandmother Carmella Corso Russo who came to America with her husband Fillipo Russo around 1885 and had many adventures in the West before finally moving back east and settling in Providence, Rhode Island.

James Pannozzi Worked in a hat factory in Danbury Connecticut. Location and family of his twin brother Andre Pannozzo unknown. Had a large family, all children now deceased. Children Paul Pannozzo and James Pannozzo were known to my father, their Uncle. Brother Joseph Pannozzo, also of Danbury worked on the New Haven RailRoad for 60 years. All emigrated from Fondi, Italy in the late 1800's or early 1900's. Interesting fact, all stayed at an apt. on 342 East 115th St. in New York City after getting processed at Ellis Island. Original home of this family was in the mountain village of Campodimele. They immigrated to Fondi some time in the 1850's or 60's.

James Pannozzi Anna's Aunt Mabel Kennett Russo and her Uncle James Russo were Vaudeville performers who traveled all over the country performing. And then would return to Providence on the off season bringing gifts for everyone. James was a dancer, knew Bob Hope when he was young and kept performing right up to the end of his life. He died in 1949. James' brother Leo Russo (1892-1957) was also a performer, a puppeteer using the old Sicilian Marionettes.

Her father was born in Termini-Imerese, Sicily (family name Mantia) and her mother was born in Kansas City, Missouri in 1888. The branch of the Termini-Imerese Mantia family of which her father Cosimo was a member originally came from Palermo.
