The line descends from Francesco Saverio Rapa 1842-1925. He and his wife Angela Cassar had 7 children. The oldest son Paolo (Paul) is my gr-grandfather. The youngest son Michele Angelo is your gr-grandfather....
My line goes Francesco > Paolo > Alice > John > me
Your line goes Francesco > Angelo > Francis > you
your father and my grandmother were cousins, my father and yours second cousins, you and I would be second cousins-once removed...Hi Cuz! :o)
I've been in touch with your Uncle John's daughter Jeanne here in Maine...sadly she lost her husband a couple years back, and we've lost touch.
I'm confused on one thing you mention...you have Angelo > John Joseph, and I don't know why? If your line is Angelo>Francis, who is the John Joseph?
I'd like to talk with you further...please email me privately - use my screen name and roadrunner -dot- com if you wouldn't mind.
