Here I am again seconds later from my first posting to you- I just called my sister Angie and she said her husbands family grandmother lived in Racine/ Kenosha Wisc. She sid that she was told by the grandmother that when they came over in thru Ellis Island - the name was pronounced
A' Ricchio- just like in a'reba - Spanish language rolling tongued A
- the man at Ellis said " ahh RICCHIO" as if he finally understood what it was the person said and so it was written that way. It angered the family but they accepted it because they were finally here.
She promised to take some time today and give me more info on this.
Evidently the grandmother recently passed on as she mentioned that she owned quite a few acres and it is going thru will process of inheritance.
well best go got to finish my preparations for this cook out.
