John Cafarella

My grandfather in Malden. Married to Mary Rosa Cincotta, the marriage did not go well and by this time he was living with his siblings in Malden while she and her children lived on Palmer Street in Medford. He was a well known barber and maintained a shop on Washington Street in Malden. I assume that these pictures are in the yard of one of the Cafarella houses in Malden, perhaps in and around Chestnut and Sterling Street. He and his mother, Rosa Cusalito, died within hours of each other. Col. Joe said that he came home on leave in 1942 to find both his grandmother and uncle in caskets in the livingroom.
