Just catching up with all of this. My father was Rocco Trupiano, son of Thomas Trupiano. Apparently they fit a lot of Trupianos in that Bayard Street house! My dad was born 1927, and when he was a kid the Bayard street house was destroyed or badly damaged by a flood, and the residents scattered throughout Brooklyn(and Queens I think) but many of them landed on Guernsey(sic) Street in Greenpoint, which is where my dad grew up till he joined the Army in 1944. Many of his cousins lived there as well. Thomas, his father(second to last son of Rocco) died when my dad was nine. It's interesting that Rocco's son Michael was a bookbinder as my father spent most of his working years in the book business, as have I. Sadly my father and most of his generation are gone, and I have almost no one to help me connect the dots any further. Impressive detective work by all on this site!
