Notes for Giovanni Battista Rugo
Living in Tramonti di Mezzo in 1927 when son Giuseppe visited with children Anna, Emilia and Leonard.

Henry Rugo says that he visited their home in Tramonti di Mezzo. It was left to the person who took care of them in their old age and passed down to her family. The caretaker was named “Menia” and was still alive in 1947-1949. Henry Rugo had the family tomb repaired after many years of neglect and the effects of the earthquake.

Buried with them is Quarta Pia Lorenzini who died in 1932, after G. B. Rugo, but before Giulia Varnerin. Giulia was her great aunt, Quarta’s grandmother being Felicita Varnerin, Giulia’s sister.

Henry’s sister Julia adds:
“I had heard there were 9 children.  There was 1 other daughter who died, I know. There could have been other deaths because after the ones you mentioned were all here, the house was given to a cousin.  She cared for the elderly parents in return; so there were no others remaining I would assume.
My father and his brothers took turns every 2 years or so returning to visit the parents. When we visited (Marsha and I once and another time with Burke as well) the daughter-in-law of the cousin was living in the house.  She was delighted we came.”

Henry and Julia’s brother Robert Rugo says in July 2007 “My grandparents house is the last one on the left, going out of town toward the cemetery.“
