In case you hadn't figured out yet, we are cousins.
Frank(Jean) is Bill's(Rose) brother, they had sister Rose(Ernie) and brother Joe(Vera). The oldest brother was Salvatore(Catherine). They were my father's first cousins. They were my second cousins. Steph I heard about you (football?) you may remember family in Park Ridge(Dom,Jim,Toni,Freida). These were Salvatore's kids, my cousin Steve has a restaurant in Wisconsin. All related to past Rockford, McHenry/Harvard, Ladd, Chicago, Florida, Massachusetts families. Danielle, I've also had short contact with Julie in Chicago (her grandfather is Bill, father Phil)
I have a picture of them, with my father. I am 41 years old, and live in Chicago. Please email me at any time.
