Luigi Fagnani, Alfonso Fagnani

Hi again,

I found that a highly probable great-grand-uncle (my Emilio Fagnani great-grandfather's brother, perhaps) called Alfonso (he was given as Alfanso in the Ellis Island Records) went from Brazil (São Paulo!) to NY and arrived March 10, 1900 @ 26 ys. old (b. ca. 1874). Since Emilio was born in 1870 AND Alfonso was a "mason" (I'm not sure if he handled cement, stones or if he was a Mason), and my Emilio founded a Mason Lodge in Brazil in early 1900's, perhaps Alfonso was his brother. He said he was going to stay at the place of Luigi Fagnani, who lived in Morristown, NY. Does anyone know something about these two Fagnanis?
