Taibi family story about baron, adopted kids, etc... descendants in Niagara Falls, NY

Surnames: Taibi
My Taibi ancestors immigrated from Racalmuto, Sicily to Niagara Falls, NY.

There is a family story about our ancestors being the children of a ruling Baron at the time. Because the Baron was murdered, the priest of the three children changed their last name since they were next in line and he thought they would be murdered also. The murderer was the person who followed them in line to be Baron.

I am guessing other descendants of this family might have heard a similar tale? Anyone? Any truth to it or is it all fabricated?

What I have found in original Racalmuto records is that Francesco Taibi and his brother, Angelo, were both adopted. They were not born with the last name "Taibi." What I am unclear on is if they were adopted by their real father (which did happen) or if it was someone else altogether.

Unfortunately, I can't trace our roots far with name changes! Thanks for any hints...
