Does anyone know who is in following photos?  Photo number one is my grandfather Gilbert.  The back of the photo says “Pete, Philly, Leona, and Turk”.  Photo number two -we were told that the brothers lured Pietro to the roof top to snap his photo, he hated to have his photo taken.  I think Gilbert is with Pietro.  Photos number three and four are unknown.

    I want to thank Tom Butch for his post. Was trying to confirm Boccia/Butch. I am from Buffalo and am trying to trace my maternal grandfather’s family. He was Louis Leon(e) son of Clement and Mary or Deletta(?) Butch Leon(e). I found Clement and Luca on a 1891 manifest from Opi to Ellis Island. Again Luca & Maria and possibly Louis in 1901. I do not know if there are multiple marriages, however.
