|Michele A. Smits||RE: Xavier Mineau|
Oh my goodness! How exciting to hear from you! Xavier and Eleanor were my great grandparents. They had 5 children. Three boys and two girls. One of the girls was my grandma, Marie Mineau Smits!! She and my grandpa had just 2 children, my dad and my aunt. It's such a coincidence that you're living in Florida. My aunt, Nancy Smits, moved to Tampa last year to live with her daughter. A hard adjustment for anyone, but she goes with the flow and is settling in, making new friends and joining in activities. My dad will be 80 years old at the end of this month and Nancy will be 79 in August. I can't wait to tell them I've been in contact with you!!

Xavier was my great-grandfather. My dad and I are curious if, based on your name, you might be related to us somehow or if it's just a coincidence?

|Karen Toby||RE: Harry J. Gust|
Thank you for your reply and information about how you are linked to our Aunt Helen and Uncle Harry Gust.
My mom, Karen (Karl) Toby, is the daughter of Louise and James Karl. My grandmother Louise, was Harry's sister, and she was the youngest of the three Gustapagalia children.
The Gustapagalia family is from Pescia, province of Pistoia, Florence Italy. Paul Gustapagalia married Teresa Rosellini...They were my great-grandparents, and they immigrated to the United States through Ellis Island with their three young children. Their children were Charles Gustapagalia, Harry Gustapagalia and Louise Gustapagalia (my grandmother).
|Karen Toby||Harry J. Gust|
My name is Michele Toby, granddaughter of Louise Mary Karl (nee "Gust", which was shortened from Gustapagalia). Harry Gust was my uncle, he was born in Pescia, Pistoia, Italy, with his siblings: Louise Mary Gustapagalia (youngest) and older brother, Charles Gust (Gustapagalia).
Please CHANGE the birth place location of Harry J Gust (Gustapagalia) to Pescia, Pistoia, Italy. It says Hibbing, MN which is incorrect. His wife, Helen Gust, was born in Hibbing, MN.
I know this information from my mother is Karen Phyllis Toby (nee Karl) and she is still living and she traveled to Italy in 1989 to find the home of her grandmother, Teresa Rosellini, which she did.

Great lady and we miss her!

I added a picture of her.
|Glenn & Kathy||RE: Meno|
Thank you for the information. I have deleted the duplicate memorial and added the obituary to the other memorial.
|Glenn & Kathy||Meno|
Have to add your headstone picture to my memorial because
I put my memorial in first.
Thank you for the Stephenson family information. I added Jean (Heaney) Stephenson's obituary today. Her obit mentions she was born in Washington Co, NY. I noted both birth places (Canada and NY) as possible birth locations.
