I seek information regarding Gaetano Saverio De Stefano and his 3 sons and one daughter. Below is the 1900 Census and 1910, for Cook County, IL. In the 1900 C., a brother appears, named Joseph De Stefano, and it indicates, that they both imm from Italy @ 1884-1886. Gaetano is divorced, and remarries my Gt Gt Aunt, Mina Joy, @ 1900-1901. Any connecting information is appreciated... I still do not know where they are buried..I've been assuming Cook County.

It appears that they lived at 260 South Center Ave in 1900.. then by 1910 had moved about 10 1/2 miles south and a bit east to 1817 Clifton Park Ave, and then by 1923, Mina and her mother are recorded at 4114 West End Ave, which is back to the original 1900 Chicago neighborhood, less than two miles east from 260 S. Center Ave. I do not know where Gaetano is buried nor his wife Mina. Perhaps ?? he is the Gaetano De Stefano who dies in 1917
[looks like Guy S. De Stefano, in whose home Mina Joy is a housekeeper in 1900 Census ] and wife of 10 years, in 1910. Any suggestion for finding a cemetery location for them, is appreciated.
