July 4, 1964 fireworks explosion

Postby drbdrdeb » 11 May 2016, 00:46

This is an odd one. I am looking for the background of the two men who were killed on a barge in the Hudson River explosion. They were Anthony Amato, 60yo of Secaucus, N.J. and Anthony De Francisco, 40, of Sparkill, N.Y. Both are family names, but I can not place them. Any help from those with long memories?
