The Family of John Iacano and Angelina Russo FemminellaMy husband's parents are Rose Mary Iacano (1916-1976) and Charles Derry (1908-1974). Rose was the second oldest child in her family of seven brothers and sisters:
- Frances Eleanor "Frannie" Iacano-Ventura (1915-2002)
- Frank J. Iacano (1918-1994)
- James J. "Jimmy" Iacano (1920-1972)
- Giovanna Helen "Jennie" Iacano (1921-2008)
- John B. "Johnny" Iacano (1923-1991)
- Joseph Sam Iacano (1926-1945)
- Gaetana "Tannie" Iacano-Cosiano (b. 1936).
Family stories relate that John emigrated some ten years before his marriage, and that he went back to Sicily to meet and accompany Angelina to the U.S. or provided for the travel with a family member. However, the presence of her family in the 1920 Census may argue against the stories; they may have met in Cleveland.
