In the year 1917, an Antonio Sidoti purchased a crypt in St. Vincent de Paul
#2 Cemetery on Louisa Street for my great grandfather, Angelo Rosso. The crypt
subsequently became the resting place of my great grandmother Marianini Longo
Rosso (in 1938) and my grandfather Valentino Rosso (in 1965).
I have been informed by Lakelawn Metairie (manager of St. Vincentís) that, in
order to have the right for myself and my spouse to be interred there with my
family, I would need to either (A) produce the original crypt deed; or (B) prove
I'm related by blood to Mr. Sidoti (who is still listed as the owner of the
the Sidoti family and perhaps I would be allowed to buy it or have the title
transferred to me. Of course, I would cover all expenses. Also, descendants
of Mr. Sidoti may know if they are possibly blood relatives of my grandfather.
that in 1899, Antonio Sidoti (wife, Rosalia) listed Valentino Rosso as a member
of his household. Further, it appears that a Mary Longo was also listed in
the Sidoti Household and that Gaetano Longo was listed as the widow of an Antonio
Sidoti (married April 5, 1890). Longo was my great grandmotherís maiden name.
Importing Co. and that my grandfather Valentino Rosso was a salesman for J.
Segari & Co. Fruit Importers, so perhaps they were friends through work and
Mr. Sidoti, as a benefactor, purchased the crypt for the Rossoís.
I would be very appreciative for any assistance, as I have been caretaker of the stone and planned for my entire life to be buried in my family crypt. the title to my familyís crypt, I would be deeply grateful. I can be reached at email@example.com and 845-651-1144. Thank you. Rosso
