Melissa, it is my understanding that my Frank's parents were from Sicily. But then, as we research, we find all sorts of "mis"information.Reggio Calabria is on the mainland, south. Here is what I do have: FRANCIS FRANCISCO ESGRO(known as Frank) was born 1911-1913 in Clarksdale, MS.His father was JOSEPH ESGRO. The Italian name for Joseph is GIUSEPPI. Mary Elizabeth Parillio was listed as the mother's name for Frank Esgro on a copy of his SS5, the application for SS.Again, I suspect the spelling of her last name isn't exactly correct, but we all know how names were mispelled during immigration.
