Giacalone's from Marsala came to Chicago

  of 50

My branch of the Giacalone family is as follows My Grandfather Andrea was married to Margherita Sciacca both originally of Marsala, Sicily. They emigrated to the US about 1913 or 1914. My father Antonino was the only child born in America. The others Mary, Antonio, James (Vincenzo?), Josephine who married a Patsy Giacalone also originally from Marsala, Celia - who died at about two years of age from a scalding, were all born in Sicily. The family setteled in Chicago, Illinois although there may have been some relatives in NYC. With whom they stayed upon arriving while searching for Antonino who was separated from them and lost for a week as they arrived. I know there are relatives in Marsala but I don't know who they are. Any help would be appreciated and I will gladly trade information.
