I am researching for a friend (JOSEPHINE FRANCIS COLLIS UK)
Her Great Grandfather ANTHONY (ANTONIO?) BUFFA (AKA. BOFFA BOFF) was born ABT 1847 and came from NAPLES. He was a Sherrif in CHICAGO. He went back to ITALY then came to ENGLAND just before WW2. he was in a UK internment camp with his brother JOSEPH.( That is what I have been told)!!! ( maybe they got the wrong generation)
Anthony was also a mosaic worker (not sure in which country)
He was married to MARIA (COLANGELO we think) Not sure where they married. MARIA was born in 1947 ITALY and died in England in 1952. ANTHONY died in England 1938.
They had a son PAUL BUFFA born 1900 died 1927 Married LILLIAN MURRAY born 1924 (who was first married to a first cousin ? COLANGELO) They had a daughter MARY BUFFA born 1924 Married to PERCIVAL WALTER JAMES COLLIS born 1921. Their daughter is JOSEPHINE FRANCIS COLLIS
