My ggrandmother was Rosa MIRABILE, married ___ BRIGNOLO, and was from "a little village" around Palermo, Sicily (may have been called "Vita".)Rosa and ___ BRIGNOLO had at least 5 children: Maria, Onofrio, Giuseppe, Pasquale, and Ignatzia (my grandmother.) All children except Pasquale came to the US around the turn of the century.Pasquale remained in Sicily, and supposedly was a police captain there. Ignatzia married Angelo LEO, son of Peter and Philomena (___) LEO, also from the Palermo area, may have been "Catalafino."Ignatzia and Angelo came to the US with his parents and siblings: Salvatore, Sebastian, Antonio, Sam, Nina, and Rosalia.They came into Ellis Island, NY and eventually moved to Braintree, MA.
Would love to hear if any names ring a bell, am seeking any and all branches of the family both in the US and Italy. TIA!
