I wonder if Lucy Cannata had any ties to Philadelphia? Do you know if she did? Could it be just coincidence that my grandfather (Rosario Cannata) came through Ellis Island in New York in 1907 and went directly to Philadelphia? When there he worked in a steel mill and later on the rail road as a cook. He returned to Sicily (Modica) in 1911. He married my grandmother (Concetta Avola) a short time later. In 1914 they came through Ellis Island again and this time headed for Toronto, Ontario, Canada. It is interesting that your grandparents left Canada and ended up in Philadelphia. Were there Cannata's, Dinardo's or Rosanova's there drawing your parents to Philadelphia? I too would like to know more about Lucy Cannata - I will try to find out.
