John Cafarella

My grandfather arrived a few years after 1899, following his older brother. He married Mary Rose Cincotta. They lived at the top of Summer Street in Malden with Grammie and the ensuing children on land owned by his brother Tom. They later lived in a tenement in Melrose. He lived much of his later life with family in Malden. He was a well known barber working in his shop on Washington Street in Malden. He and Grammie had a stormy relationship, but everyone I have ever met referred to him in a kindly way and always said he was a wonderful guy. He and his mother were buried in a double funeral.
