The business interests of Utica are worthily represented by Angelo Cardamone & Sons, wholesale and
retail grocers, at 739 Catharine street. The firm was established in 1897 by the father and he is now assisted
by his three sons, Frank, Samuel and Joseph, all of whom are members of the firm. A large patronage has been built
up among the retail grocers of Utica and neighboring towns. The firm has occupied since April, 1907, a commodious
three story building and carries a well selected stock which compares favorably with that of any other concern
of the kind in central New York.
Angelo Cardamone is a native of Castagna, Italy, and was born in 1842. He came to Utica from New York city in 1890
and has ever since made this city his home, engaging actively in business on his own account since 1897. In Italy
he was married to Nicoletta Sacco and they are the parents of seven children, namely: Frank, who was born in Italy
in 1880; Samuel, born in Italy in 1883; Joseph J., who was born in this country in 1890; Cora, living at home;
and Mary, Angelina and Frances, all of whom are attending school. Mr. Cardamone and his family are members of St.
Mary's Mount Carmel Roman Catholic church.
Frank Cardamone, the eldest son of Angelo and Nicoletta Cardamone, is now thirty one years of age. He received
his preliminary education in the schools of Utica and later was graduated from the Utica Institute of Commerce.
He has been a member of the firm of which his father is the head ever since he completed his preliminary training
and is known as one of the highly promising young business men of the city. He was married to Miss Lucy Sacco,
of Utica, and they have two children: Angelo, who was born April 29, 1909, and Anthony Frank, born July 25, 1911.
Samuel Cardamon, the second son of Angelo and Nicoletta Cardamone, is now twenty eight years of age and has shown
an earnestness and ability in business that give bright promise as to his future. He was educated in the schools
of Utica and is a graduate of the Utica Business College, having become a member of the firm of Angelo Cardamone
& Sons upon leaving that institution. He married Miss Mary C. Sacco and they have three children: Helen, who
was born January 12, 1908; Angelo, born February 15, 1909; and Rose, born September 30, 1910. Mr. Cardamone is
a member of the Independent Order of Red Men and is an officer in the local lodge.
Joseph J. Cardamone, the youngest son of Angelo and Nicoletta Cardamone, received his education in the schools
of Utica and completed his studies in the Rix preparatory school. He has been an active and efficient member of
the firm of Angelo Cardamone & Sons ever since leaving school and, judging by the interest he displays in his
work, is destined to a highly successful business career.
The Cardamone brothers are not unmindful of their duties and responsibilities as American citizens but are independent
in politics and vote in support of men and measures rather than in behalf of political parties. Active, progressive
and efficient in business as in all other affairs, their influence is exerted in behalf of the upbnilding of the
community. By the application of unfaltering energy and clear judgment the father and sons have developed a prosperous
business and are to be classed among the wide awake and substantial men of Utica.
