Frank Mercurio Obituary

Postby nlynncar9 » 12 Feb 2007, 03:33

I am researching my great-great grandfather and am trying to find his parents, and the way he is connected to the other Mercurios in Richmond, IN. I hope this is a helpful record to someone. If you know anything about his family and its connections, please reply.

>From the _Palladium Item_ and _Sun-Telegram_ of Richmond, Indiana, Final Edition, Thursday, November 6, 1947, page 4, column 3.
