Maternal grandparents are Therese/Theresa C. Hughes (daughter of Catherine/Katherine (Dewees?) and Jack/John Hughes) and Joseph Paul Pepino (son of Alfred Pepino and Lena Nasella). Alfred is the son of Joseph/Guisseppe Pepino and Maria DelSindaco, both immigrants from Italy. Lena is the daughter of Paul Nasella and Maria Nicola Panichelli, both immigrants from province Campobasso in Molise region, Italy.

I’m not sure if Dewees is Catherine’s maiden name or a remarriage name.

i think if the person looks white whether mix or no mix he should be said to be white, like wise if u r mix and look black u should be called black..i think that’s only fair

@Linda

(i think if the person looks white whether mix or no mix he should be said to be white, like wise if u r mix and look black u should be called black..i think that’s only fair)

What about personal choice?Most people who saw my dad,thought he was a white man.However you couldn’t pay him to call himself that.I have an aunt,who just went back to Mississippi.Straight blond hair white woman,but call her that,and watch all the things she calls you.In her eyes,she’s just light skin,lol. What I’m saying ,is if that person looks white, and wants to called him/herself white,that’s their choice(I want be mad at them for it).It’s the same if they prefer to be called black.Actually they’ve been doing it for centuries anyhow.

so they should lie and say they were just white or just black… When the truth is they are just white as they are black, you make no sense, i could maybe agree with you if they just say they were brown because they are niether white nor black
