    Re: Salvatore Difatta Burial

    I am working on the Difatta branch on my Passarelli Family Tree and am confused my conficting information. I show Sam (Salvetore) Difatta as having died in Trinidad and having been buried in Holy Trinity Catholic Cemetery,and then I see information that states he died in New Orleans and is buried in the Metairie Cemetery. Does anyone know if he was moved at some point? Also any other info on Salvetore (Sam) Difatta would be appreciated.

    I see that several trees on Ancestry are carrying the info that Salvetore aka Sam Difatta died 20 APR 1947in Louisiana. To me it looks like Salvatore DeFatta and Sam (Salvetore) Difatta are two different individuals. Your Sam Difatta died 28 JAN 1937; Trinidad.

    Re: Salvatore Difatta Burial

    I am the granddaughter of Sam(Salvatore) Di Fatta. I am having much difficulty in finding information about my grandfather. I did find a Samuel Difatta in the US City Directories with an address on Kansas Av. in Trinidad. Would anyone know if this is correct?
