I believe it is I had this info already. But I appreciate you sending it to me again. Do you know anything about the LaSala woman they came over with.

Hi Jerry,

More than likely Maria La Sala was their mother. Italian women maintained their surname after marriage and traveled using that name. The manifest indicates that Maria is going to join her husband Filipo Abruzzo on flushing Ave., in Brooklyn, NY.
