Have you noticed the cousin that is living with this family in the 1920 Census? Does the last name sound familiar at all?
I wouldn't be surprised if Michele re married..it was often done. My own Great Uncle did the same thing and when his wife and son "surprised" him by arriving in America the truth came out.
Abitante con Michele e sua famiglia nel 1920 era un cugino. Riconosci tu il cognome?
Multi uomini hanno abbandonato loro mogli e hanno risposato nel Stati Uniti.
|Nei due documenti relativi a Michele Bocchicchio nato il 31 Marzo del 1988 ci sono due differenze. Nel primo definiscono i suoi occhi BLUE e i suoi capelli RED. Nell'altro i suoi occhi sono BROWN e i suoi capelli GRIGI.|
