My beloved grandmother's maiden name was Wright, so of course I am touched that Worth and Ashley chose it for her middle name. Sweet Emma...blessed with the love of family before she even knows it!

|Rev. Emilio Ernesto Cavaleri|
That immigrant's only child* was my paternal great-grandfather, Emilio Ernesto Cavaleri. After an unorthodox childhood, he married Maggie Fairbanks with whom he had thirteen children. He was a Methodist minister and retired in Birmingham. What a coincidence that Emma was born there (especially if you skim his Life Story and see the number of places where he could have landed)! There are two more Emilios (my grandfather's brother and nephew) but now we're getting into another branch of the family tree (but how cool is it that they ARE Birmingham people, too?)!
