I amlooking for information on a Gasparina Cammarata born in Italy,married Frank Palermo also born in Italy. Not sure if they married in Italy or in United States.Lived in Boston in early 1900's. Had three sons - Albert, Frank and Victor. She remarried before 1930 possibnly before 1920. There is a daughter listed on the 1930 census but do not know if this is a Palermo or the daughter of her second Husband, Stephen Maragooglio (info off the 1930 census). The Daughter's name is Marion.
Frank Palermo (the son) was my grandfather and was born March 15, 1913. Albert was born about 1912 , Victor around 1916 and Marion around 1920. All children were born in Massachusetts.
Any information will be appreciated.

I came across your post and wondered if you found answers to any of your questions. Is the Frank Palermo, your grandfather, also known as Blinky Palermo? He is my grandfather too. Just wondering if it is the same person.

I have not had any responses. I do not know if my grandfather had any nicknames, but i do know all his children and their children (my cousins) except one so i doubt it is the same. But his father was also Frank Palermo and that is who i am trying to find out more info on. Do you have info on your Palermo family you can share? maybe we can make a connection.

I am not in contact with my father and I only learned about him last year. I have been doing research and believe I have found him. I knew his name and that his father was the head of the Philly mob. This was Frank "Blinky" Palermo. He ran the boxing and there are lots of documents out there about him. I am not sure how many sons he had. I think 3 of them. I think his parents were born in Italy. I had found a death certificate for the grandfather, Frank "Blinky" Palermo, on Ancestry. He died at 91 years of age in Philadelphia. Any chance we are talking about the same Frank?

probably not. my great grandfather Frank came from italy to Boston and died in 1924. his son, my grandfather, lived in Boston and NH.
Good luck on your search.

I think they must be different people. Frank Palermo, my grandfather was born in January of 1905. Frank, my father was born in May of 1935.

Hello, Frank "Blinky" Palermo is my grandfather as well. I would be happy to speak with you and maybe we can fill in some blanks.

I would like to know the name of Frank's mother and father and where they are from in Italy.

Hi, I saw your post about Frank "Blinky" Palermo, he was my great-uncle. His brother, Fred, was my grandfather. The Frank Palermo who was married to Gasparina Cammarata is not related. I may be able to fill in some of the blanks for you.
