      Follers, can you add this info:

      Samaire’s maternal grandfather was Silvio A. Sepielli, son of John/Giovanni Sepielli and Elvira Demucci. Silvio was born in Pennsylvania to Italian parents from Troia, Apulia.

      Samaire’s maternal grandmother was Angela/Angeline Corsini. She was of Sicilian descent.

      Corsini might not have been her maiden name since her previous husband was also Corsini, but she has that name even on her marriage record to him.
