Looking for Pico from Sicily

Postby Rachelyne » 04 Nov 2008, 19:29

Hi everyone:
Sorry but I am back again. I know you are so busy helping other people. My husband was so impressed with your thorough and quick search on D'Alessio. He called all his relatives and told them about the new found info. Now he is asking me to ask you; please if you could find his grand father Pico coming from Sicily to US. His father's name is Lawrence Pico. He does not remember his first name of his grand father. Thank you so much.

Rose is his Aunt. But I think he said he had an Uncle named Johnie.

If that is him because they lived in madison, NJ. I do not believe my Husband does not know he was named after his grand father.

We know Rose's daughter was Mayor of Madison/bloomfield, NJ.

You are incredible! My Husband's name is Anthony Carmine Pico. Now he will know where he got his second name from. I am so surprised he did not know his grand father's name. He says he was only 5 or 6 years old when he died. Thank you so much for all your help. I was looking for my children's ancestors Pico for 18 years. You people do years of research in one day! I am so greatful. Thanks. I will do some research with these names and hopefully don't have to get back to you as fast as I did. Thanks once again.

Rachelyne,
That's pretty neat that your husband was named for his grandfather :D .
