My grandmother was a Francioni and married into the Bateman family. Morgan city La. Her father was born in Corsica france
And left for America when he was 14yrs. old to avoid the draft
for the Army. Any way thats the story I got from grandmother.
He was a store owner butcher or bar owner? He built a fine home across the street from the rairoad in morgan city 500 blk. railroad avanue.The house has since burnt to the ground.
My grandmother rented rooms later years to the rail road workers during the week to earn extra money. Grandfather was ill. I was told that Nonce Marie Francioni husband of Leontine Fraytee was also a captain.
