Please help me find a missing WW1 Vet

Post by djm1228 » 29 Nov 2011, 04:41

Hi All. Thanks for trying to help....

Here's what I know

Angeline (Ange) Murano b Nov 4 1891 in NYC married Vito Marraro on April 7, 1910. Together they had two children Vincent in 1911 and Josephine 1914. The story goes was that when WW1 came, Vito had to go back to Italy to fight in the war. He was never heard from again. Any ideas of where I could find more information on him. I don't know a birth year but assume it was around Ange's birth year. Don't know where in Italy he was from the Muranos were from Ruoti Italy.

Thanks! Diane
