A little stuck with LaRocca/Drago

Post by forestmaiden71 » 16 Jan 2020, 01:31

I'm trying to find information on these 2:
Carmelo LaRocca born about 1850
and his wife, Grazia Drago. I don't have anything on her. I do know they had at least 2 kids- Marianna La Rocca b.1878 (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903 ... -VKF&i=256)
and Francesca Calogera LaRocca b. 1884 in Messina, Sicily, Italy (https://www.familysearch.org/ark:/61903 ... f=GSPZ-P3Y)

Any help with these 2 would be wonderful.

Thank you so very much!

Would it be possible to get the date on Grazia Drago's birth?
And you didn't happen to find any more of their children by chance?

Thank you again! This has been very very helpful!!!

Oh thank you so very much! I have one last question - any spousal notes on those births? (I'm sorry, I am so bad at reading these!)
