Her name was Theresa Barone and I believe her sisters were named Rosaria age 18 in 1885, Francesca age 10 in 1885, Antonina age 20 in 1885 a brother Domenico age 2 in 1885 and a 7 mo. old sister named Giuseppa.I found them on a ships passenger list that arrived in New York May 1, 1885 on the ship Gottardo.Does any of this sound familiar??

They had 6 children I know of. 1) Joseph b: abt 1879 in Valledolmo married a Jenny 2) Michael or Michele b:abt 1881 Valledolmo married a Mary 3) Russell b: abt 1883 Valledolmo 4) Francis b: abt 1885 Valledolmo married Sam Comella and came to the U.S. 5) Cologera b: 1887 d: in infancy 6) Cologera b: 22 Jan 1889 Valledolmo married Vincenzo Cascio. My husband comes from the 4th child of Cologera and Vincenzo. He is Samuel Cascio. My husband is Dennis, Sam's 3rd child. Yes we tie in with Barones from Valledolmo too. A Maria Barone b: abt 1855 Would love to hear from you. Thanks.

Dear Gwen Cascio,
My great-grandfather, Giovanni Sciarrino was born in Busicquino, Palermo, Sicily, in 1853. It could be a stretch, but maybe your Crocefissa Sciarrino b.1858, is related to Giovanni, somehow?
Good Luck,

Dear Joe,
Great to hear from you. A pleasure to find a fellow researcher on the Sciarrino surname. I checked a map of Sicily. I was unable to find Busicquino. Could you possibly mean Bisaquino? That is 60 KL from Valledolmo and my Crocefissa Sciarrino. We are probably related closer than through Adam but I don't know how big of a stretch it is. 60 KL is quite a distance. Would love to hear if you find a origin on the surname or anything else interesting. Good luck on your research.

Sincerely, Gwen Cascio

Dear Gwen,
Thank-you for responding.
Sorry about mispelling Bisacquino.
I have found several sites that list surname roots. Below is one site I keep a hardcopy on the info:

Titled "The Arabic Roots of some Sicilian Names", says,
"Sciarrino - Arabic: sharrii which means 'impetuous,' 'bold.' "

This is all I have right now regarding the orgin of the Sciarrino name.

Good Luck on your research,
Joe De La Cerda

I am currently researching my ancestry. As I was going through my notes I found a document for Francesco Scibetta death before 1821 his spouse was Antonina Leone and their child was Antonin Scibetta born: 1751 and died 1821 she was married to Domenico Barone. My family to is from Sicily near Valledermo if you think you can make a connection please contact me. Here are the surnames: Scibetta, Maita, Zaccone, Manzo. Thank you for your consideration. Joyce
