Re: Antonio DiFiore

I did not know that he listed his father as "Donato" on his arrival manifests.

He had six children with his wife Theresa (Thresa/Teresa D'Antico): Filomena (1922), twin with Joseph (1922). Constance (1923), Phyllis (1924), and my father-in-law Pasquale (1926), and Ralph (1931). I found them on the 1940 census. They used a varation of "DeFiore" here in the U.S. later in the years.

Still trying to find the association of Nicola to Antonio, other than they are from the same town, and both went to Camp Grant, in Rockford, Illinois for training. How Antonio was in the Army during WW1, when he was out of the United States (in Italy during the war) has got me puzzled. I've seen his bronze marker, and it says "WW1."

And there has never been any DiFiore's around this area other than him. Saw some of them in Chicago while researching, but do not know if any of them are related to him.

All the help would be much appreciated. Thanks for the name of the father of Antonio. I will add it to my material.
