Francis Xavier Allegretti

I am hoping there are distant cousins out there who know of my well traveled grandfather Francis Xavier Allegretti. His nickname was "The Alderman" He was born Sept 2 about 1899 in Brooklyn, NY. He had one brother Achille Peter Allegretti, and one who probably died young named Achille Beniamino Foshinato Allegrett. The English form of his father's name was James b. Mar 1857, and his mother was Maria last name Teivigrua or similar. Maria was born about 1859.

He had sisters Carmela/ Camilla, Anne, Emma, Maria, and Angela, all were born in New York City area. The name I have for his grandparents is Vito (b. abt 1829) and Giani Allegretti b. abt 1837.

The parents and grandparents were tailors who came to the United States of America in about 1879 living first in Manhatten, NY. I believe Maria had a brother Francis who young Francis Xavier lived with for a time.

Thank you.
