my grand mother was nunce francioni's daughter.we think captain francioni was an uncle that adopted him. we were told his last name was clare ,but haven't been able to clarify this. my daughters an I are going to Morgan City some time this year to go through the archives there.I will let you know what we find. we took pictures of the grave stones in the cemetery. nunce died in his forties, we don't know how he died. May I ask what is your interest in the FRANCIONI family?
