December First, 1912

            On November 30, 1912, in the church of San Leonardo Abate in the small central Sicilian town of Serradifalco, Gaetano Coniglio, a sulfur miner, married Rosa Alessi, the daughter of a sulfur miner.  As was the local custom, on the next day, December First, they went to the town’s city hall and were re-married in a civil ceremony.  

            Less than six months after their marriage, Gaetano left for America, to Robertsdale, Pennsylvania, to join his brother Giuseppe.  He temporarily left his expectant wife Rosa in Serradifalco.  She joined him in 1914, together with their first son.  

            Over the next seven years, Gaetano worked in the coal mines of Pennsylvania and Rosa bore him three more boys before the family picked up and moved to Buffalo, seeking a better opportunity to provide for their growing family.  They settled there, and eventually had six sons and three daughters.  Those children have procreated, and today Gaetano, who died in 1944, and Rosa, who lived until 1972, have over a hundred and twenty-five descendants, scattered throughout America.

             One of those descendants is Adam Michael Steht.
