This is a family history and genealogy website which traces the life and descendants of our ancestors.
My Mother was a Parker and my Father was a Zacchilli. and before they were married, my Grandmothers' surnames were Gross and Fraccalossi. I married a Farrelly whose Mother was a Barry. These are the six surnames that will receive the most attention on this website. Additionally, the surname Young as it relates to the Farrelly family and the surname Murphy as it relates to the Barry family will receive considerable attention.
There is much mystery, entertainment and history in the stories surrounding the above families.

In the 1600′s, our Parker family removed from England to New England because of religious persecution only to flee to Canada at the end of the Revolutionary War because of their loyalty to England. Three generations later, our Parker family returned to America.
Tracing the Zacchilli family through many small Italian towns has been the project of several relatives for the past decade and has only recently come close to closure when the “cousins” got together by email and swapped documents and “hearsay.”
The mystery of the surnames Creaser, Crusser, and Gross was thought to be solved, however, in 2010 we learned that the Gross Registry was not correct. Recently uncovered documentation shows much confusion back in the 1700s.
The Fraccalossi family was a theatrical/musical family who came to America looking for a better life. Their struggle to become citizens and learn the language puts to shame the immigration problems facing this country today.
The Farrelly and Young families originate on the border of Northern Ireland and the Republic of Ireland and provide a mixture of intrigue both political and religious.
The Barry and Murphy families originate in Cork, Ireland and are first observed in the New World when a group of young women cross the Atantic together looking for work.
