MACALUSO FAMILY OF BLOOMVILLE, Town of Kortright - July 28, 1941

The family members were: Parents: Concetta and Joe; Children: Peter, Victor, Frank, Sebastian (Benny), Anthony, Catherine, Grace and Leonard, my father who was killed in WWII at Okinawa (link to newspaper clipping announcing that he was missing in action). Leonard was the third child born.

The farm they lived on was a dairy farm (they sold milk and eggs). Two brothers who stayed and worked the farm were Sebastian (Benny) and Anthony (Tony). I believe the property was sold in the late 60's or early 70's. They lived a couple of miles from the town of Bloomville.


From the 1940 US Census, Town of Kortright:

MACALUSA - Joe 58, Concetta 54, Sebastion 19, Anthony 16, Grace 14
