    • Found Camilla's son, Salvatore, in the gravesite that the office at St. Lawrence Cemetery gave me for her gravesite sect.C Ave.6 Lot 83. Never found her gravesite even with help from the maintenance supervisor at the cemetery.Gerri Goodwin, Rose Parente's granddaughter, said Giovanni & Camille are buried at St. Lawrence about 2-3 rows back from the tall black fence that you can see from the Parente's plot at St. Lawrence (this must be the fence that separates the cemetery from Yale Bowl). Walked the whole area & could not find their gravesite; will continue to search for them.

    1903 Naples, Italy Camille Florio with her son Charlie (Angelo) Mascola
    I believe this picture was taken in Agerola about 1903 & I believe it's a picture of Camille Florio with her son Angelo Mascola who may have been getting married in Agerola; the picture was found in the home of Angela Rose Mascola Parente & marked on the back with 'Emile Mascola, mother of Angela Rose Parente'; another picture found at the same time of the same gentleman was marked on the back 'Charlie Mascola, brother of Angela Rose'.
