Vincent Failla b. Sicily - Maria Failla

Hi Richard: I'm looking for information about my grandmother, Maria Failla, born in 1892 and came to New York, via Naples, from Castelbuono, Sicily in 1905. The reason I contacted you is that I remember my mother mentioning a small town in Sicily that sounded like Lucuedo au Bare, where her grandfather was the mayor. I can't find it on the map and wondered if it was anywhere near Cefalu or Castlebuono. My grandmother may have come to America with other Faillas, possibly sisters, named Giovanna, Lucia and Giuseppa. My grandmother married Joseph Mannuzza and lived on the lower East Side. Ironically, I grew up on Staten Island.
