RACCUIA, SICILY - CASELLA

Post by ToniCasella » 16 Jul 2008, 00:40

Francisco (b 1894), son of Salvadore (b. 1856), son of Antonino (b. abt 1826) Casella.
Looking for any information on any of these fine gentlemen. Family is from Raccuia (Raccuja), Sicily. Looking at microfiche, it looks like Antonino's wife's surname is Alogi.

Thanks!

Estimated Birth Year: abt 1857
