In 1904 the first Nesossis immigrated to the United States from Chiavenna–a city in northern Italy. Prior to coming through immigration, the family name was spelt Nesossi (Knee-so-see). Upon arrival, immigration quickly added the extra letter changing the family name to Nesossis (Knee-so-sis). Hector and Annie Lamey Nesossis were bakers and together they owned and operated The National Confectionery in Biloxi, Mississippi. In 1918 the bakery burned and they moved their 7 children to Texas.
Over the decades there were other family members who were creative. A great grandmother who painted in water colors, a great uncle who worked as an animator for Walt Disney, a grandmother who worked as a typesetter, and grandfather who assisted in building the Panama Canal.
