This information is a lot more than I have had for many years. I have been trying to find out about my father for the past fifteen years, with very little luck. My mother was not married to August at the time of my birth and he died befor I was old enough to really know him. My mother new his wife and son Bobby at the time of his death. My mother was supposed to visit him at the hospital on the day he passed but due to his death was unable to visit or even attend his burial service. August spent a grat deal ofd time with me at my home in Newburgh prior to his death and I would really like to find out more about him, his life, his story, as well discover any of my extended family. I would like to share any information about his life and legacy with my family, as well discover any family medical history or important family information. I nearly died in September, 2007 and would like to learn as much as possible about this part of my family. Any other helpful information is graciously awaited. Thank you all, very much.

Hello everyone! I'm new here, but too much coincidence for me as to what I am looking for. Any help would be greatly appreciated! My step Grandfather was Michael Anthony Gentile, he died in Syracuse NY in Dec 1968. He was not only my grandfather, but I saw him as my Father...and loved him as though. What I was told about him was that he was born in NYC Jan 16th or 24th of 1906. His mother only spoke Italian, and that both his parents were from Italy. I was also told, that there was a Big Mafia background. That Michael at a fairly young age, was pulling alcohol off boats in the Bronx during the depression and that either his dad, or uncle was a big head there in the family. Michael made all his money there, later moving to Conn, and later to Syracuse NY after marrying my grandmother Alice V Connor. I also know he had been in the Navy and was a boxer, though I don't know if that was before he married Alice or not, I can only assume so.I know Mike had an older brother Nick, and someone they called "Augie" (August?). Also a sister named Ann Jayne, weather Jayne was her last or middle name I am not sure. Or if there were more siblings.
He played saxaphone beautifuly until throat cancer hit him in late 50s;(
I know my grandmother, Alice could spit nickels whenever Mikes Dad was mentioned, so I fig she most definately didn't care for the man. But she loved his mother who passed away in a nursing home yrs before. I've read a lot on Nicola Gentile and am trying to make a link here. My first born son Michael Anthony was my grandfathers name sake, as he never bore any children himself. That was a death bed promise I kept for him. Now my son wants to know all he can find out on the family, as well do I.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated..plz email me. Also the names Carmen and Josephine were mentioned alot while I was growing up, but no clue as to who they are.
I keep editing this because I read more in the chat! Nicolas in Auburn NY? That was My grandfathers Brother! Im on the rt track here, but pieces still missing;(
Sincerely (Linda Acre) aka Sharenka

I wish to add this here, I have tons of pictures....they include Michael, and Nick his older brother, and ann (angelina) there are other people in these pics, Im wondering if they could be his siblings? Possibly August, Carmen and Tony, I was only about 3-4 yrs old then, im now 54. I will try to get them loaded up on my pc if anyone would like to see them. I now know, This is his bloodline after looking up what details I had written down many years ago. I was just looking at Nicola Gentile the mafia leader because I knew Mikes oldest brothers name was Nick,figuring he was named after the father. And the fact he was into bootlegging. But after seeing Nick in Auburn NY...I know this is the right family! my email is moonstruck1954@hotmail.com if interested. TY
