HI Mark, I was on here looking at a thread I posted on years ago and just started looking around. Your D'Aquilla is spelled the same as mine and we are related to "one L D'aquila's as well". I heard the same story, misspellings on a birth certificate. I'm not sure if we are related. Vincenzo D'Aquilla came here from Cefalu, Sicily ( he wouild be a great great grandfather. He was in the New Orleans area and then settled near Natchez, MS. My grandfather is Sylvester D'Aquilla, my dad is Sylvester D'Aquilla Jr.
