DeFazio's in Moosic, Pa.

  of 53

My family settled in Moosic Pa. I really don't know where in Italy we are from, I beleive Napoli. My great great grandfather bought a mountian in Moosic, and they made a living cutting block ice off of the lakes in the 40"s and up until the 60's. I had an uncle Benny who started a trucking co. DeFazio Express, but when he died, the company died soon after. Benny was succeded by a son Benny jr. and a daughter Gale. My grandfather was Joe DeFazio, he was married to Elizabeth Howell from Pittston, Pa. They had three sons, Joe, Michael and Billy. Also My father had three sons, You guessed it, Billy, Michael, and Joe. My grandfather had a sister, I don't remember her name, they did not know about each other until my grandfather was older. I guess there were some family break ups. My great grandfather was also Joe DeFazio. He had several brothers, Warren, Fury, Palmer. I don't know much else. Anybody have any more info?
