Can you provide any additional information about your Mary like a possible birthdate or year? Her father's name would also help.

I found one Terranova family in the 1920 Census but the father was a Mason.

After looking through the records for the 1920 Census's I realized their are over 460 Terranova's living in the state of New York...many of them resided in Brooklyn.

It is definitely much easier for you to provide us with more details if you have them then for us to continue to go through the families one by one. I did go through about 20 families but haven't found anything yet that could help you.

I will wait for your reply unless someone finds something first.

Hi, sorry I have been away and did not get an email notification that you have replied.

Unfortunately, that is all the information I have. My grandmother was her godmother.
