I don't know if you are still checking this message board but I'll reply anyway. My Grandf. was Vincenzo Manicchia from Corelone who enterd the US via New Oreans in 1897. Don't know where he was from that time until he married my Grandm. in Lake Charles (Calcasieu Parish) in 1909 or 1910. He had a brother named Leoluka (Luke) and a sister named Marie (Mary) who was married to Frank Cutrupia. all of them died in the 1960's. As of last week, there are 3 Manicchias listed in the Italian white pages in Corleone. Either respond here or email me, Lana Sullivan, at firstname.lastname@example.org
if you want to continue a Manicchia discussion.
