Surnames: Comardo, Camarda, Cammarda, Camardo
My grandfather was Louis Camarda, Valguarnera, Sicily, Province of Enna (name misspelled upon U.S. entry to Comardo). He was married to Josephine Frocchi, also from Valguarnera, after arriving in the states. He had two brothers who also settled in the Rochester, NY - Mt Morris - Genesee Valley area, Ralph (Rafael) Camarda and Anthony (Antoni)Camardo. Their mother was named Michaela Damiano and they had a sister who remained with their mother in Sicily. Their father died when they were young and we do not know his name. My grandfather told the story that the Camarda's (his grandfather) was from Spain and that they were not Italians or Scilians. That there were three brothers, from a wealthy house of spain (there is a Casa Camarda on the tour's of castles in Spain) that were sent out to three different countries - one being Sicily. My grandfather was born around the 1880's and died in the 1960's in his mid 80's. He and my grandmother had 6 children. My father, Felix and his siblings Dominic, Margaret, Frank, Philip and Geraldine.

There is more info but I have to check to make sure I have it accurate.

If anyone has any info on the origins of our branch of the Camarda's or any other information, it would be appreciated.
