Hello Bonron.
 Lovely to receive your reply.
I'm not sure if you looked at carols ancestory tree or not to confirm but this would show enough evidence for you. I too have a tree much the same showing William Patrick foley as my grandmothers father who was born in Alexandria Egypt. My grandmothers mother was Maria teuma, she was his third wife. Your grandmother guiseppina was his first wife who gave birth to both your father and his brother (your uncle) in1903 and 1905. He then remarried Lucy (Lucia) whom he had a son with, Victor. She passed away two years later in an accident and he then married again to Maria teuma where they had one son and three daughters. He then passed away at the age of 43. All children have passed now except my grandmother who was their third born, she is almost 91. Your father Mario the magnificent was a well known wrestler, he also had fingers missing and spent some time in prison as I have heard. My grandmother never knew of William Patrick foley first wife (your grandmother) we assume he kept this from his third wife for some reason. There is also rumour that he perhaps told people he was a captain when in actual fact he was only a clerk on the ship. However, old records such as the ones you find, will always have contradicting details such as name spellings and employment/professions as these change (as all of ours do over the course of our lives) and they also aren't always truthful when stating these facts during census. Your father was 100% my grandmothers half brother. I have a photo of your grandfather if you would like me to show you and I can also get you in contact with my grandmother if you wish.

Thanks
Kelley

Hi Kelly, thank you so much for your prompt reply, yes i have read carols posts, (are you connected)well i do have quite a few B/M/D certificates of Mario who married in Kensington  in 1935, and Mario's father William is on the marriage Certificate as occupation police inspector, sadly Mario passed away in 1980 aged 77yrs, buried at Carpenders park Cemetery London of which i have also the Certificate of his passing,regards William Foley he married again in Dec 1920 to a French lady called Marie La Pupe or Pape difficult to make out on the Marriage Certificate,but you say he married Lucy (Lucia) sounds Italian do not think that is correct , what happened to her i wonder,, well  i have got other items of info but was not aware of Victor and others you speak of, i have a pic of Mario and also one of when he was a young boy of 16 yrs i believe joining the ship as a boy,,,,this is so very strange but  yes please i would love a photo of my Grandfather,, we must follow this through and see were this takes us , there is just too much to say at this stage , however what you have spoke of is interesting , i do hope to speak again soon , until then take Regards Ron

Ok, so....I am not sure where la pupe comes from with my great grandmother Maria. She was born in Egypt of maltese decent and her maiden name was actually Teuma. The document you are reading may look like la pupe but actually be Teuma with unclear handwriting? This I do not know as I have not seen this document. However, I do have her down also in my tree as La pupe in brackets after Teuma as a suggested name she used too..
 It is probably evident that your father knew nothing about his half siblings as it does seem no one knew of your father and uncle so I would say William foley kept this to himself perhaps? We don't know really do we? Lucy (Lucia) was the second wife he had after Guiseppina but it was brief as I said she passed in an accident but did also produce a son (victor). This was around 1917 and she passed in 1919.
 My father is 66 years old and he would be your cousin. It would be really wonderful for you to connect with him! You also have many more cousins living in both England and Australia. And as I said, one remaining aunt who didn't know your father and uncle existed as either Maria or William did not tell them. He passed away from alcoholism (also drinking cleaning spirits) when my grandmother was only 4 years old.
 I have attached a picture of your grandfather William Patrick Foley.

Rootschat isn't a forum for tracing living people and we aren't allowed to post detail of anyone who might still be alive. Going from the dates in your last post it's possible that Mario's brother, sister-in-law and niece could still be living so you'll probably need to edit that post. Just click on 'modify', change the details and then save.
