Do you know what Andrea's father and mother's name were? Also do you know for sure that the Sam in Chicago was his brother Sam. We have a Salvatore (Sam) born in Sicily, Oct 1887that lived in Detroit and Saginaw MI and later moved to San Pedro, CA. His father was Carlo and his mother was Stefana. This Salvatore also had brothers: Angelo, Domiano (Dominic), Phillip, Joseph (Giuseppe), Andrew(Andrea), Antonino (Nino), Frank (Francesco), Robert. But there was also a sister Anna who married "Jim" Prestigiacomo (Presto). I found Carlo coming to the U.S. in August of 1920 as a widower, listed he was going to his son Andrea's house in Chicago. I have no idea if these are the same people as yours or not. The kids of the family have always said that there was a tie in to both Chicago, MI, and NY. Would be interested in Comparing notes. A friend from Italy is also looking for a Salvatore born in Sicily Jan. of 1878 and came to the U.S. in 1903 who is her grandfather..
