On Find a Grave you can view a photo of the double headstone for Rocco and Nancy, buried Forest Park Cemetry. Now there's a photo of headstone for a Rocco Traina b 1831 Italy, d 1900 buried Glenwood Cemetery, also in Harris Co. Do you suppose he's the father listed on DC for Charles??? I would follow up on that.

On Rootsweb's WorldConnect site, someone is working on this line, too, But I think there may be a mix up in maiden names. See what you think, then contact submitter and share what is on DCs for members of the family.
