Giuseppe (Joe or Joseph) Esgro and his brother Samuel Esgro first appeared in this county in Coahoma Co., MS. b. 10-08-1880 in Italy. Family told they were born in Sicily. Joe m. Mary Elizabeth Prollio(Prolio), and they had:
SANTA (1908-1973)
STEVE JOE (1935-1999)

They lived in Memphis TN at least during the 1940's and 50's as Joe was grandfather to my cousin, Frank Esgro Jr. Frank would visit Big Daddy at his house there, as would numerous other grandchildren.
Looking for more information on Joe and Mary's descendants and hopefully a bit on Samuel and his. Some of the clan went to CA. which is where Frank Sr and his 2nd wife settled and Frank Sr. died.

I believe Mary's maiden name may have been spelled Proglio.
