Here, gathered in our beloved South Dakota, are a few members of our Williamson / Mattson Clan. Charles and Luella are to be blamed (be kind, they didn't know what they were doing). We're generally a happy bunch and somewhat intelligent (notwithstanding our tenuous grasp on reality). I'm also proud to say that most of us still have our teeth.

Our Cousins in Lead (Vercellino Line)

From the Fortress of Solitude
Pleasant Grove

Dear Family,
We’ve all been to Lead to visit Evelyn and Leslie Configliacco. Mom and Dad said they were our cousins on the Vercellino side of the family but I never understood the relationship. Today I decided to solve this mystery. Below is the family tree showing their relationship to us.

Therefore, Evelyn and Leslie Configliacco are our 2nd cousins, once removed. I found this recent picture of Evelyn (now well into her 90's) online. It was part of a set of wedding pictures. I know, it says do not duplicate but hey, you know me.

And here is the a picture of Evelyn's parents.

With this down we are beginning to see a growing number of Vercellino cousins nationwide, and several new family lines to explore. Isn't it all amazing how it snowballs?

  1. How interesting! Mary and Verne were my great grandparents and they also had a son named Russell. Leslie Configliacco is the only surviving member of that part of the family. You are a great looking family! Thanks for posting your research.
