I am unable to narrow down or find on a census my great-grandfather, Guiseppe
T?????? married to M. Mauro. I am trying to locate any information that
would lead me to find when and where he arrived in the U.S. Guiseppe was born
around 1872 and probably came to the U.S. around 1890.
I know that in 1914, his daughter Mary Tourorus (another variation of name)
was married in Avoyelles Parish. I have her marriage certificate.
If anyone can help with this I would be most grateful. Thank you
