    I am researching the BARRO family from Arcade. Specifically, I am aware of a Carlotta M. Barro (married name) who was born 23, May, 1879 and emigrated to the US. I do not know her husband’s first name, nor her maiden name. Any information to help link the family would be greatly appreciated!

    Thank you
