Walt, thanks he is very elusive. I have all of that stuff, I was posting in the hopes that I'd find someone with the same last name or further back. I've been at this two years, my LDS aunt many more.

I've found several additional spellings too. He went with Fred Falconer on his naturalization papers as his final name. The birthdates have more variances too.

I have his immigration stuff and family stuff too. He was a die cutter and then foreman at Pittsburgh Screw and Bolt. And they owned the house on Metropolitan, which was a pricey at the time for a foreman... however it was in her name, another odd thing. Sadly that is all industrial areas now.

The Jessie part is a typo on the forms. His son's name Cesare, his nickname later on was Jim. He's my granddad.

His wife Helen wasn't very good with English and he helped fill out the forms for Stella's wedding and listed her maiden name as Shore. It's part of more weirdness. I'm in touch with her part of family too but they just didn't keep much of anything and aren't interested.

So my hope is someone whose with some of the same ancestors in Italy around the same time will see this.

He had a brother Cesare, a sister Luisi both who appeared to stay in Italy, altho Cesare did some to the US. His father Gueseppi/Joseph also was in America before he arrived but his mother stayed in Italy and died there.
