Descendants of Mauriello Celebrate Annual Family Reunion

The descendants of Amalia and Francesco Mauriello recently celebrated their annual “Cugini Mauriello” family reunion. Amalia and Francesco emigrated from Italy and settled in Newark, New Jersey in the 1890s. They had four daughters, Consiglia Scrofani, Theresa Freda, Louise Vardaro and Lucy Palmieri. Members of the family travelled from California, Illinois, Massachusetts, Maryland and parts of New Jersey to Barnegat for a weekend of winemaking, food, drink and reminiscing.
