Sam's real name was Emilio. He had three children:
Tom (Buddy), Mary and Caroline. All are now deceased. Tom had two children after he moved to Texas. I've since lost contact with them. I don't know of any other living relatives with the Zoda surname in the U.S.
I know that both Sam and Vincenzo met untimely deaths, but have no idea of what happened to the other siblings, except for Eugene. He lived in New Jersey for a long time, and I think both his son (also Tom) and grandson (Eugene?) may be deceased.
A cousin of mine tried to contact a person he thought was the grandson's widow, but had no success. He also tried to contact what seems to be the last relative in Sicily, but got no reply.
