Frank Spuches was born in Sicily. He arrived in the US (most likely at New Orleans) in 1887. He married Katherine Tarantino who was born in New Orleans. Sometime after 1900, Frank Spuches Americanized his name to Frank Spokes.
If Frank Spuches followed the naming convention for his children, his parents are most likely Guiseppe and Carmilita.
Thanks and good luck.
