Cantale out of Tortorici Sicily

Postby radar2870 » 14 Feb 2009, 15:42

Great Grandfather Sebastiano Cantale immigrated to Ohio from Tortorici Sicily in 1903. He was born in 1864 died sometime after 1930. Looking for other decendents or information on any siblings. Grandpa spoke of a brother, but I am not sure of his name. Other family members have said that Sebastian made cheese mainly string cheese and was the richest cheese maker from OH to NY. Then his brother talked him into turning his cheese factory into a Pepsi plant, and that endever didn't go so well and they went bankrupt. I have been unsucessful so far in finding informantion on both a cheese factory or a pepsi plant in or around Akron OH. Between the years of 1910 and 1930. Any help would be greatly appreciated!! Signed a greatful Grandaughter yearning to know more about her family.
