    My great grandfather was Rosario Zappala
    My great grandmother was Agata
    They had two daughters Grace and Anna
    Seems Agata and her brother were teachers I’m San Giovanni La Punta.
    Seems Rosario came from a large family. His father is said to have a horse farm.
    Rosario was sent out of Italy to North America. The town took up a collection for his wife and children and they went to North America to be with Roosario.
