The Licciardello family built a dream in Trenton, NJ

The Licciardello family built a dream in Trenton, NJ

Hoping this maybe of help and interest. This was in the Trenton, NJ newspaper, The Trentonian, September 24, 2004.

In 1904, Joseph Licciardello came to the United States from Sicily. His first job was working on the Philadelphia trolley tracks.
Joseph's dream was to own his own business. His dream soon came true as he opened a small grocery store on Elmer Street in Trenton. Later, he purchased a store on Butler Street in Trenton, which he turned into a fish business.
Quickly, a second store next to the fish store sprang up and Joseph turned it into a produce store. These two stores would soon merge into one big produce business at 64 Butler Street.
In 1919 Joseph married and soon began a family. All together he had three sons and a daughter. His son Domenic born in 1920 served in WW II.
After World War II, Domenic returned home and took over his father's business in 1955. Over the years, Domenic worked hard.
Licciardellos is well-known for providing fresh fruit, produce and frozen foods to restarurants and schools.

My name is Nancy Ann Licciardello-Magliato. My grandfather, Morris Licciardello was Joseph's brother and he also was involved in the produce store on Butler Street. My father, Domenic told us many stories of when he was a boy living over the store and the long hours they all had to put into making it work. My grandfather, Morris (or Mario) left the family business and got involved in construction work and real estate. It's nice to see our families history.

Hi Jude,
Do you know where this Joseph (was his name Guiseppe?) Licciardello was born and if he had siblings? The date of arrival would fit with his app birthdate...the Licciardellos I am looking for were all born immediately prior to the early 1890s...in the Giarre area of Sicily. Any help here would be wonderful.
Thank you
Jennie

Jennie,

So sorry in the delay in replying to your posting. I am
not directly related to the family. My grandmother, Rosella Gilroy's niece, Rosella Scandura, married Domenic Licciardello.

I am so sorry that I can not help you. Good luck and don't give up, you never know when something will turn up!

Jude
