Surnames: Probasco, Roberts
Hello-- My Great Grandfather was named Probasco, possible Roberto (he was called that) or Frank. He owned a shipping & hotel firm and was (as we understand) from Rome. His portrait shows a very Northern Italian-looking man with very white hair. I am told his family was originally from the Po River valley region of Italy.

His first wife was "Jessie" Josephine or Jessica (she may have changed it after the divorce in the late 1800's) Rheinheimer, she may have been French or French Canadian. They had two children, I am descended from Ethel who married a Welshman named Roberts (who was a Dr. in Kansas City and later in Mt. Vernon, Missouri) and had four surviving children: Esther (married Ellis Kinyon), Robert (married Virginia), Billy Joe (married Ruth) and Alan. I am Esther's (was born “Easter Morning, changed in the 50’s) child. Jessie moved west to California in the late 1800's. There are paintings of hers depicting Marin Head and San Francisco Bay.

Are we related? If so, there is a whole branch of the "clan" to reclaim with many descendants. Yours, Lezlie
