my grandfather Rocco entered the states at Ellis Island in 1910. He was about one or two years old when he came over. He worked in a barber shop part-time in Pittsburgh, he was 18 or 19 according to my father, the barber that he worked under, his name was Pete. The shop was in Bloomfield where he lived in Pittsbourgh. He had ten brothers and sisters. His father died when he was 11 so my great grandmother remarried and five half brothers were Spateros and the five blood siblings he had were Mazzoccolis. By trade he was an engineer and he went to night school.
Hope this helps.
