    Looking for any information about Carmela Miceli Born In Fuscaldo Italy.
    She married Aniceto Muraca and lived in Bianchi during the 1880’s and 1890’s. She had seven children with Aniceto Muraca. They lived in the large home in Morachi that bears the Muraca family crest. Aniceto died in Brazil around 1896. I believe she remained living in the house till she died sometime between 1900 and 1910.
    If anyone has any knowledge of Carmela or Aniceto I would appreciate your correspondence.
