Marianna, Pennsylvania Historical Events

Memories of Marianna
Marianna is a village of brick two-story homes stair stepped to the top of a hill of very narrow streets. The town is supposedly is named of Saints Mary and Ann. It is a Bethlehem Steel Corporation coal mining town. Many of the people are of Italian, Chekoslavakian and Russian descent. There are a substantial number of African Americans who came from Alabama to work in the coal mines of Marianna after the turn of the century. Their surnames are Higgins, Frazier, Lawson, Washington, Hadnott, Pinson, Hightower and Hammond and others. Our neighbors were Italian and named Caponi. Herbert was the father. I remember a family by the name of Gallic, who were related to the Poplarchiks. The town is very depressed and many people, have left, but Marianna remains picturesque in location and memories.
