  2. Girls, girls, girls! Is the name “Scalpone” on the way out? Some rainy day I’m going to count the number of females vs. males on the tree. I know this: among our almost 300 living members, there are only eight males with the name Scalpone from whom we might expect a new generation of “Scalpone” men to keep the name “Scalpone” in Scalpone-ville. The eight? Three sons of Gerry Scalpone III–Samuel, Jacob, and Ryan; three sons of Russell Scalpone–Alan, Dan, and Jonathan; and one each to David Scalpone (Craig) and Travis Scalpone (Aeden).

  3. Who is PHIL SCALPONE? Apparently a young man in Connecticut/Mass. who is using that name on some of the inter-personal sites. I can’t figure him on the tree. Help?

  4. Well, it rained here in northern California yesterday, so I kept my promise to myself and counted. There are 202 males among the 408 or so names on the tree, so it’s about normal. Maybe my fears (see Comment above) are groundless.

  5. I talked the other day with Sal Scalpone of Springfield, Mass, who at 95 is the oldest living person on the tree. He’s going strong, I’m happy to say. Sal is the last survivor of five Sal Scalpones on the tree, by the way. It’s unlikely we’ll see more people with the Sal moniker; it’s too “foreign” for these days. But we have Salvatore Fuscaldi, only in his mid-40’s, flaunting the name in Rome.

  6. Hi-

    I amd researching family ancestry and have a Nicasio and Maria Scacciaferro on my line. Any chance they are related to your family member Scacciaferro. Mine came from Italy and lived in Lousiana. My great grandmother, Virginia (or Vicenza) was their daughter I I know came over to New Orleans in 1893 at age 3.

  8. Michelle Brendel Bowser has written a funny short book published on Kindle. You can read “Don’t Yell at the Damned Desk Clerk” for 99 cents. Download Kindle if you already haven’t.

  9. Hi,
    I would like to contact Robert or Ronald Mingalone, but I can’t seem to find them. I lived next door to them in Lodi,NJ when I was a kid. I’d like to see how their Mother and Father are doing. Could you please contact me and let me know if you know how to contact them.
    Thank You,

  10. Hello.
    I was wondering if the Charles “Chuck” Scalpone (12/25/46 to 2005) is the same gentleman that I knew at Mather High in Chicago. I think that he lived around Washtenaw & joined the Chicago Police upon graduation. He played offensive tackle on the football team. I played defensive tackle & had to scrimmage against him a few times. Not a fun thing to do! Thanks.

  11. 11. Mark, sorry you left no e-mail address. Most likely you have the right Chuck, but since Carol and I never knew him I suggest you contact Frances Scalpone in Palatine, IL, who would most likely be most helpful: Good luck.–Frank
