Submitted by Rudolph Mammone,, of Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania

My father, Angelo Rafaele, was born, as we have determined, in Bari, but spent his childhood the mountain village of Mongiana, in the Catanzarro Province. In 1902, at the age of 12 he was brought to America by his father, Pasquale. He began his stay in America working in the coal mines and railroad in West Virginia. In about 1910 he returned to Italy and married, Raffaela Timpano in Mongiana.

He then returned to America with the intention of sending for my mother and by then a son, Luigi, but the World War made that impossible. On his return to America, he went to Niagra Falls, NY, where he was employed in a paper mill, After a few years, somehow he learned that work was abundant in Beaver Falls, Pa, and made his way here. He worked for a number of years at the Armstrong Cork Co. In either 1915 or 1916 he went to work for an Italian wholesale grocery co, and after some years he opened his own grocery store in 1920. In 1925 he was able to return to Italy and then brought his family back to Beaver Falls.

Children born to Angelo and Raffaela Mammone, were Luigi, born it Italy in 1911. Children born in Beaver Falls, were Rudolph in 1925, Alfred in 1926, and Mary in 1929.

My father had only a sister, so finding close relative Mammones has been virtually impossible. There are two other families in the immeadiate area, but as far as we have been able to acertain, they were either 1st or 2nd cousins.

Concerning the name Mammone, it occurs in the bible as denoting the devil in the passage "you cannot serve god and mammon.

And about the brigand. About 30 years ago I was waiting in the office of a supplier when I noticed a book on the table with an intriguing title. "Monsters and Gouls". I picked it up and flipped through pages when a name caught my eye. Thirty years have an effect on memory, but I am quite sure that it either Giacomo or Gaetano. When I got home I mentioned this to my mother, and she became quite agitated, asking were I had heard of such a man. I then assumed that the story was true and she did not want to divulge any embarrasing details about an ancestor.

I would be most pleased to have any information that you might find concerning our name.

i have read with great interest the website on mammones. our family (still many of them in Vallefioritia (Province de Catanzarro) continues to have land holdings there from over a century ago. It is my understanding the Greek translation of Mammone is "great mother." OR according to a recent people magazine article, mammone means mama's boy. strongly disagree there.
