I think I might be related to some of you. My great-great-grandfather, Ignatius "Natchez" D'Aquilla (I believe that's the correct spelling), was born in Sicily. He married Frances Musmice. Their son, Phillip "Buck" DaQuilla, born in New Orleans I believe, had a daughter named Frances, who is my maternal grandmother. I live in McComb, MS. I have some DaQuilla relatives who lived or might still live in MS (I'm not sure of the town-maybe Fort Adams???). Any info would be greatly appreciated.

Surnames: D'Aquila
My father was Vincent J. D'Aquila, he was the son of Ignazio (Natchez) D'Aquila whose parents were Vincenzo D'Aquila and Rosaria (Sara) Feraci. After Vincenzo migrated to the U.S. he and the family lived in New Orleans, LA and then moved to Fort Adams, Ms where they lived for many years. None of the family now lives in Fort Adams since it is practically a ghost Town. Some of the family do live in Woodville, Ms which is the county seat and about 20 miles from Ft. Adams. Natchez D'Aquila was born circa May 29, 1877 in Cefalu, Sicily and married Frances Musmeci in about 1901 in New Orleans, La. He died in Greenwood, MS on June 6 1971 and is buried in Hollywood Cemetery McComb, MS. He did have a son whose name was Philip (Buck) DaQuilla who had a daughter named Frances and 2 sons. They lived in McComb, Ms.

Rose,

I had a teacher at Perkinston College named Sylvester D'Aquilla. I saw your post referring to that name as your grandfather. I always wondered what happened to him---he was a brilliant teacher! Is this your grandfather?

David,
This is my father, not my grandfather. He retired about 6 years ago with the the same college. He did teach for USM but eventually came back to MGCCC. I would be glad to tell him hello for you if you would like to give your name.
I'll tell him your remark. I had him for College Trig and he was one of the best teachers I had in math.

Thanks for the reply---I'm glad to hear that your father is doing well. He probably won't remember me---several of us were in the Air Force at Keesler, and commuting to Perk. It was 1962 through 1964. I did get my two-year degree there. Please do pass on my comments to your father---his enthusiasm and teaching skills made a big impression on me.
