    Notes 
    • (Research):According to Roma Waterman, who probably got the information from Rosetta Verrochi, Nicholas Verrochi was married twice. His first wife was Rosa Massalena (in Rosetta's records it is spelled Mazzolini) His second wife was Crocifissa LaCivita whom he married in Stoughton, MA.
    • (Medical):What we now call Glomerulonephritis was for over a century known as Bright's Disease. Glomerulonephritis (gloe-mer-u-low-nuh-FRY-tis) is inflammation of the tiny filters in your kidneys (glomeruli). Glomeruli remove excess fluid, electrolytes and waste from your bloodstream and pass them into your urine. Glomerulonephritis can come on suddenly (acute) or gradually (chronic). Glomerulonephritis occurs on its own or as part of another disease, such as lupus or diabetes. Severe or prolonged inflammation associated with glomerulonephritis can damage your kidneys. [2]

    USA-MA-SUF-BOSTON Sacred Heart Church North End
    USA-MA-SUF-BOSTON Sacred Heart Church North End
    It is highly likely that this was where Nicola and Rosa Verrocchi worshipped when the first came to America and probably where Rosa's funeral Mass was held. Sacred Heart has been serving the Italian community of the North End since 1884. It was run by the Scalabrini missionaries who came to America to minister to Italian immigrants. The Nave of the upper church is an impressive space with marble columns supporting its magnificent frescoed ceiling. The smaller devotional chapel downstairs is a splendid testimony to the piety and devotion which the early immigrants brought from Italy. The chapel is surrounded by shrines to St. Anthony, St. Lucy, Our Lady of the Rosary, St. Therese, St. Rita, St. Jude, Poor Souls, St. Rosalie and the Pieta.
