Children of Giustina (Simonetti) and Donato Giafone
|My grandaunt and uncle, Donato and Giustina (Simonetti) Giafone had a large family. Their children are my first cousins once removed. They are Joseph, John, Lucy, Salvatore, Theresa, Edward, Mary, Rose, and Josephine. Giustina's granddaughter, and Salvatore's daughter, Justine Giafone Adams, sent me this photo montage. I got goosebumps when I first saw this photo because I remember seeing every one of them when I was a little girl in Williamsburg, Brooklyn. They grew up around the corner from me on Union Avenue. I lived on Conselyea St.|
