    Stephen Porciello (1894-1984), who was Rick Porcello’s great-grandfather was born specifically in Avellino, Campania, Italy. Also, Glenda Joy Allen the paternal grandmother was of recent Scottish ancestry and possible distant Irish ancestry as well. Glenda’s great-grandmother was Margaret Marilla McKeehan (common Scottish surname) who I traced the paternal lineage to Alexander McKeehan (1680-1760) born in Glencoe, Argyll, Scotland. But more recently Margaret McKeehan had a Scottish born ancestor named Millbury Mauldin (1722-1747).
