another one I need info on.

Richard and Doreen DiFina

Richard is the son of Jennie Gloria Cincotta and Joseph DeFina. She only got prettier as time went on.

Anthony Cincotta High School 1958

Marion Vasquez and Tony Cincotta's son Anthony.
Evidently, when Anthony was a kid he got a black eye somewhere. Anerio Cincotta and Anerio Vasques started calling him Bo from then on after the cartoon dog in the Boston Post that had a black ring around his eye.
Anthony died on June 18, 2016

Best Buddies

Anerio Cincotta (Left) and Anerio Vasquez probably in Salem in the late forties. Anerio C. was known as Fred or Sonny and Anerio V. as Charlie. They were as close as brothers for their entire lives.

Jennie and Onofrio Vasquez

Jennie Cincotta married to Onofrio Vasquez. Onofrio was named for the Saint that was especially revered in Pollara, I believe, on Salina. Onofrio was long gone when I got to know Aunt Jennie. I obviously knew her since childhood, but I was so young that I had lost track of most of those relatives. I went to stay with her for a few days before my first trip to Italy. She dragged me off to church, I suppose to make sure I would be protected on my journey. We were immediate friends till her stroke years later. She had the same devilish smile that she had as a girl. A great woman and fun to be around.

Jennie Vasquez

I do not know any member of the family who has had so many changes in appearance. When I knew her well, she was a pretty, tiny older thing, well dressed, tough but nice. Some of her early pictures were very pretty, but with a devilish smile. Some of these pictures she looked like a dressed brick. So many changes in her life, but always well dressed (even if the brick picture was not flattering) and she seemed to be inspirational as a mother.

Jennie Vasquez

Her cute older stage.

Jennie Cincotta Vasquez

Not yopur most flattering dress Aunt Jennie. You look much like your sister Mary here.
