Thanks for the info. My grandfather Vincenzo Cannariato was born in Prizzi in 1891, but it's quite likely that Maria could have been a cousin -- sometimes if one is able to go back far enough, a link emerges. Do you have any other info about Maria? Vincenzo was the son of Lorenzo Cannariato, who had at least two or three brothers whose names I don't know. I'm guessing that Lorenzo was born sometime between 1850-1865, and his father would have been Vincenzo Cannariato, if they followed the Italian naming tradition. I live near Rockville, MD. Where are you?
