need help finding info on these two girls

Postby gagliociminoroots » 20 Jun 2014, 22:52

I have not been very successful in finding where Josephine and Joseph's other two daughters were. I have a Josephina Gaglio who was born to them in 1923 in Indiana but after 1930 census, she disappears.

Name: Josephina Gaglio
[Josephine Gaglio]
Gender: Female
Birth Year: abt 1923
Birthplace: Indiana
Race: White
Home in 1930: East Chicago, Lake, Indiana
Map of Home: View map
Marital Status: Single
Relation to Head of House: Daughter
Father's Name: Joseph Gaglio
Father's Birthplace: Italy
Mother's name: Josephina Gaglio
Mother's Birthplace: Italy

Also, my mom said there was another sister that her mother told her about named Virginia. Apparently she had died tragically, and my mom wouldn't give me any details. It appears the family kept it a secret and now I would love to get down to the bottom of that mystery. If anyone can help, I would appreciate it.

I believe, this is, in fact her. My grandmother, Mary Josephine Gaglio, always told us that she was in and out of orphanages as a child. I think once MaryJo and James left the nest, they put Josephine in the orphanage full time.

Have you been able to find anything on Virginia or her mysterious death?
