My grandfather's mother was Angela Romano. Angela was born in Italy in 1879 and came to New York or New Jersey when she was 13 years old: apx.1892.
Angela's mother was Rose Musso, according to a 1920's census list. THey lived at 86 Semel Avenue Garfield, NJ.
Angela Romano married Pietro Benigno and they had my grandfather Charles Benigno, in New York, Brooklyn, in 1903.
My mother Alice Benigno, remembers them talking about a Musso, presumably Rose. Can this Rose Musso be a realation somehow? Does this sound familiar to anyone?
