My Great Grandfather Joseph (Giuseppe) Failla was from Siracusa or so I've been told. He was born there around 1886 in Sept. My grandmother says she was told however he was a only child which I find hard to beleive for the time period. We have been told he was from a wealthly area and that he left his land to a cousin when he came to America. He married in the U.S. to a Teresa Gelsomino from Naples Italy. Her father traveled to and from Italy because his wife never came here. Her and two sisters came with him after her marriage in the early 1900's he returned home and had 2 more daughters whom remained in italy. My great Grandparents had five daughters. We have no idea of when or who he exactly came to America with.If you can help me with this family history I would be greatful. Please e-mail at
