  of 8

Rocco and Costentia born estimated 1860-1870, married possibly St. Joseph Palermo, Moriale, Palermo, Italy. Rocco said to have emigrated to USA, probably 1900-1910. Have checked www.ellisisland.org, but haven't positively identified. Children:
1. Grazia "Grace" b 22 April 1884 was 2nd wife of Guiseppe "Joe" Gambino; on 1820 USC, Jefferson Co., AL; lived AL, W. VA, MI; to Detroit area by 1922.
2. Guiseppe "Joe" Sanfilippo b c1886 Italy married Mary [possibly Gambino]. On the 1920 census, Jefferson Co., AL.
3. Francesco "Frank" Sanfilippo b c1888 Italy married Rose. On 1920 census, Jefferson Co., AL.
4. Salvatore b 6 Apr 1889 Italy md Rosina Amato. Lived Jefferson Co., AL.
5. Lena, [female] no more known.
6. Nikolais [female] no more known.
7. Dominic, b c1896, living in hh of his brother Joe in 1920 (child #2).

Would like to exchange information with anyone. My ancestors have been here "wayback", am trying to help a grandson, but am new to Italian immigration, help most gratefully appreciated. Most families on 1920 USCensus, ED 127, Brookside/Pratt City area are coal miners of Italian descent. Are there any extant records of coal camps, or who may have been recruiting in the Palermo area?
