I can't answer this question... but it makes me remember what my mother and
grandfather told me about the Capone family.
Their family lived a block and a half from us in St. Columbanus parish. They
were a very nice Italian family in a predominently Irish and German
neighborhood. Al was the black sheep of their family - and shunned by them.
My mom went to school with Al's siblings.
Just a little local color.......
