Thank you Biff for sending the information and images on Joe Russo. Needed Carmela's maiden name.

So according to the Ships information, the son that is listed on the 1920 Census, is an adopted son, was named Benvenuto, probably changed his name to Russo.

Don't know if you or anyone else can help with the Parents name from the above list, at the beginning of this Post. I do have their father's name, Salvatore [Sam] Russo but needing mother's name.

Thanks again....

Marty - Angelo Russo death certificate states & familysearch.org website also states:

Died - 1/27/1955
age at dead: 70 years old

father's name: Salvador Russo

I do not know how to forward the image to you from Familysearch.org.

P.S. Could you find the name of his mother?

Appreciate your help.

It appears that the images to Texas death records on familysearch cannot be accessed from home computers. I was unable to view the image although logged in at home.

I found this information for brother "Ben" Russo which shows his father as Salvador (Salvatore) and mother Biaggia (Biagia). It's unsourced unfortunately.

Thank you Marty, for posting records for Angelo and Mattia Russo.
