I have made contact with Annette Brown (whose message you also replied to) and we have made some progress! She was way ahead of me on the Tomasso family! Anyhow, we now know that Rachel (Rachela) had a sister, Benedetta married name Longo; and two brothers, Angelo & Enrico. The rest of the Tomassos are cousins. I would love to hear from your daughter's teacher, esp. if she is directly descended from the above. Either way I am sure we are cousins somewhere in there! Give her my email address if you think she would be interested: email@example.com
. Feel free to email me if you would like to share info. Thanks.
