Hi and welcome to the forum, :D

The name of the town is probably Iopollo, Sicily. If you give us more specific details we will be able to better direct your search. There are many Saccos from Iopollo.

The initial I in Italian names is often mistranscribed as a Y. Iopollo and Yopollo are the same place. :lol:
