Yes, the 190 Buffalo City Directory shows both a Joseph Muffoletto (carpenter) renting @ 93 Ash and also a Salvatore Moffleto (clerk) renting 93 Ash as well. Since I did not see them before or after at this address, I figured that they were amoung those that moved south either Baton Rouge or Baltimore or joined those already in Chicago area. If we could got someone people in those cities looking up the names in the directories we could get a very good picture of who is probably related to whom.

In 1921 Buffalo City Directory we have two clusters of Muffoletto's

Joseph (barber), Peter (barber) and Vincent (clerk) rent @ 354 Front Ave. Peter has a brother Samuel (barber) rents @ 50 Minnnesota and they own a barber shop @ 349 Michigan called the Muffoleto Brothers. Near them lives Charles (barber) renting 152 Front Ave.

Salvatore (barber) and Vincent rent 1081 Genesee. They are near Joesph (barber) that has a shop @ 1519 Genesee and rents 340 Koons. Nearer the former is Nicholas (barber) renting 1067 Genesee.

This pattern changed such that by 1931 none of the Muffolettos lived on Front, but twice as many lived on Genesee. Some of the moves seem to be accounted for by job changes (not so many barbers) and marriages, but some names also seem to disappear as the early two on Ash did.

Compare this with the 1900 Mofelletto group who all lived on Broadway. Josephine, Peter (barber), salvatore (barber) and Rosa all rent @ 356 Broadway and the barber shop is on 188 Broadway.

The addresses are so taunting because my cousins all lived around these addresses, but these Muffolettos are not linked up. For that matter either are the "cousins." I should say the last names of my cousins all seemed to follow similar address patterns. The Pulvinos, Mogaveros, Mordenos, Zrenners and Parlatos.
