My name is Domenick Creaco and live in Franklin Square, New York. My Father Cosimo Creaco (aka, Sam Crago)was born in Orient, PA in Fayette County in 1911. His Father Antonio (my Grandfather)came from Italy around 1900. A cousin of my Grandfather Giovanni Creaco came to the US as well and settled in or around Orient. The name Creaco (pronounced Kree -ah - ko) like many names was changed and became Crago, I guess because Crago was easier to prounced from it spelling and probably was a more familiar name. The whole family including Giovanni adopted Crago as their last name. My Father had it changed back to Creaco when he moved to NY around 1932.
Giovanni as I understand met a beautiful girl named Mary from a nearby town, married and moved to Coshocton, OH to a small farm. It appears to me from your entry on findagrave.com that Theresa Marie Apicella Zemo (interred in Oliver, PA)was Mary's sister. Theresa's listing:
Indicates that she was survived by Mary her sister from Coshocton OH.
My Father Sam being a stong family man would take the family back when i was a child a few times to Orient and to Coshockten to visit relatives. I was always fascinated by these visits and have fond memories from them.
I want to visit the Fayette County area (soon before I am too old) in and around where my family lived and would appreciate any additional information that you have or that you can point me to.

Hubbard Cemetery Perhaps I am wrong. Are there two Hubbard Cemeteries in Oregon? One in Marion county and one in Polk county. I am searching for graves in the Hubbard Cemetery near Falls City, Polk, Oregon which is on private land.
