Marty...so do you think the ship manaifest that shows the arrival in 1905 into Boston is him as well?? It seems like it is the only obvious choice...if so then the Abruzzo area may have been his birth area? You and Suanj have helped me more in one weekend then I have had done in a long time. I am so grateful to you two!!! I think I told you that the Charles Romano Jr. was my dad and that was his foster family...The McCoys.
