In Reply to: Re: Mancuso: Castrogiovanni (Enna) Sicily by Marie of 167

Hi Marie, I really don't know much about my great grandmother, Grace Mancuso. I was able to get information from my mother. There are stories in my family that my grandfather was the illegitimate child of a Duke and that Grace was a servant's daughter. Another story is that Grace was a Duke's daughter and she had a relationship with a cook. I am looking for information myself. I will ask my mother again for the story that she remembers and will post it here. As I mentioned in myh last post. My grandfather Giuseppe Cannarozzo also had step brothers named Bavuso. He came over to America with members of this family in 1912. I don't believe that Grace ever came over. On my grandfather's birth certifcate (I have 2 from Enna) it states that his parents were Grace Mancuso and Giuseppe Cannarozzo. Stories tell that Giuseppe put his name down to save her name. I will post more information after I get the story straight. Thanks for your post. Tony DeMarco
