Lucille who was born 1901 and died 1981, was married to Sam Lograsso, and had 5 children; Marie, Rose, Agnes, Michael, Roy. Sam Aiello born 1898 and died 1982, I could not find other info yet. There were three sisters; Mrs William Mangano, Mrs Frank Roeder, Mrs Ben Kersten. Ring any bells ??? If not, we'll keep plugging away.P.S. the majority of the family that is still living, including myself, still reside in the St Louis area... small world isn't it ??
