My great grandfather was Pietro Antonio Miranda who immigrated from Campofiorito in Sicily in 1881. He settled in Placquemin, LA. I know that my grandfather (Vincent Albert Miranda) had a relative from New York that my dad called "Uncle John" but he wasn't my grandfather's brother. I've seen one reference that my great grandfather Peter's father was Don Martino Miranda. But that's all I've got so far. Have you researched your people further back since the posts a few years ago?
