Leone in Sclafani-Bagni, Palermo

Postby sleone1981 » 11 Aug 2013, 21:52

My great-grandfather Anthony (Antonino) Leone was born November 1893 in the province of Palermo (for sure) and, according to relatvies, probably in the commune of Sclafani-Bagni. He died in January 1969 in Brooklyn. Since I have his exact birth and death date from the SS index, I will write to Sclafani and see if I can get any further records.

His parents names were Angelo Leone and Annacleta Privetera. If I have found the correct immigration record, he had an older sister named Brigida. And my grandfather said he had another sister named Antoinette.

Just curious if anyone else out there has Leone relatives or ancestors from this town. Or if any of these names sound familiar. I looked at Sclafani's town website and was interested to see that the current mayor is a Leone :)

Wow, thank you!!!!

I had also heard that my great-grandfather had a brother Joseph, but could not find any further information about him. As for the sister, "Antoinette" perhaps that was the middle name of either Brigida or Josephine.

I am so thrilled and grateful to be able to add another generation to my Italian lines. Much appreciated.
