Photos from the collection of Leonarda Papa (b. 01-DEC-1862 Ustica), wife of Guseppe Cusimano (Guseman). Sometime in the late 1800's, this family moved to Houston. Click HERE to see the complete collection of unidentified photos.
Circa 1876, believed to be in New Orleans. All participants unknown.
Circa 1920, believed to be in New Orleans. Only known person is the 2nd man from the right, Tanny Charles Guseman, son of Leonarda and Joseph. Can anyone identify this church? Doesn't look like New Orleans to me.

Please help us identify these Usticese men! This is a photo of the San Bartolomeo Society of New Orleans. The only person positively identified is bottom row last man, Antonino Bertucci (b. 20-JUN-1857 Ustica, d. 17-FEB-1944 New Orleans, husband of Rosalia Omner (aka Gumina)). Upper row 1st man is believed to be Antonio Sidoti (b. 17-SEP-1832 Ustica, d. 12-JUN-1909 New Orleans, husband of Rosalia Poretto). It is strongly suspected that upper row 2nd man and bottom row 1st man are Bertucci. Also bottom row 4th man may be Tranchina. Photo from the family album of Marilyn Barbera.
