Hi Janet
I hope this helps you. It might get a little confusing.
Angelo Figaro did arrive in 1903 in New orleans last name Ficara. However he had been in this country before that. He married Francesca Paola Contreda Coniglio on Mar 27, 1892 in Louisiana. When they married the state of Louisiana spelled the last name Fecala. When Angelo died in 1905 of yellow fever they spelled it Feggero. I recently recieved documents and Naturalization papers. My Great grandfather was one of six children. He was the fourth child and the only child born In Palermo Italy. So what I have gathered is that after a few years of marriage this family decided to go back to Italy, after Louis (Luca) was born they came back to Louisiana in 1903.
I was told that Angelo Figaro was one five boys from Coleone. The thing about that is I have found two of those brothers and the last names are spelled different. To tie this all together and to help you go further the true spelling of this family is (Vaccaro). My family later moved to Los Angeles California where I live today. Janet what is the maiden name of the wife of Giovanni? I have connected a lot of names. And as you know at that time the Italians were very close neted. Let me know hope this helps. With a little more research we might be able to make a family connection.
