In 1905, my grandfather,THOMAS JOSEPH ECCLES, married MARY ELIZABETH KENNY in Phila, PA. I know nothing else about my grandfather,who died in 1917, except that he had two brothers, HARRY ECCLES (b. 1881) and CARL(or EARL)( b. 1883). My grandmother's grandparents were FRANCIS KENNY and MARIA CASEY and her parents were PATRICK KENNY AND ELIZABETH BRADLEY all of whom lived in Stokestown, County Roscommon, Ireland. Her parents moved to Phila.
In 1929, my father, JOSEPH PATRICK ECCLES married my mother ANNA THERESA VERANTI in Lansdowne, PA. My grandfather, DOMINIC VERANTI, was born in San Marino, Chieti, Italy in 1876 and moved to Phila. My grandmother, ELEANORA PICA, was the daughter of LUIGI PICA and ANGELA SANDASERIA(or SANTACERO or SANTA SIERE).

Other names in my mother's family are MARY PICA who married MICHAEL DERITAS, CLEMENTINA PICA who married MICHAEL PADULA, GAETANA(JANIE) PICA who married AMABILE MANCINELLI and MARIA ROSA PICA who married RAPHAEL DIFILIPPO. All of these people married in Phila. between 1884 and 1906.

My husband's great grandparents were THOMAS COX and MARY DONNELLY from County Longford, Ireland. They moved to Highland Falls, NY. His grandparents were JAMES COX and MARY HERMANN and his parents were TIMOTHY COX and EMMA DYROFF. Emma's parents were GEORGE DYROFF and ROSE GIBNEY. All of these people lived in Highland Falls, NY near West Point.

I am interested in locating relatives of all the above people.
