    Samuel Difatta/Salvatore(Sam) Di Fatta

    My grandfather is Salvatore(Sam) Di Fatta. I am having much difficulty in finding information about him. I did find a Samuel Difatta, on Kansas Ave., Trinidad, CO in a US City Directory. Would anyone know if this is a correct address?

    I have recently found out that the Sam Di Fatta that you listed as arriving in Louisianna is not my grandfather. There is a Sam Di Fatta that did arrive there and is buried in LA. My grandfather is buried in Las Animas County Cemetery. I do appreciate the info tho !!!
