My family is also from N.Y. - Grandfather Andrew Grandmother Jenny arrived approximately 1919? They settled in Brooklyn then moved to the country (Queens) when their son was run over by a wagon. They had their 1st child (Francesco) in Italy he was left there because he was ill they said they'd throw him overboard if he died at sea. They had 8 more (that lived to adulthood) in the U.S. -- Andrew, Joseph, Anthony, Peter, Mary, Sadie, John and Sabastiano. Anyone sound familiar to you or your family?
