   One thing is obvious; the family really had no idea when they arrived! In the 1920 Census, Frank says he arrived in 1905 and in the 1930 Census, Frank says it's 1907! We know for sure that his wife, Maria Verde Gargiulo, and his three eldest sons, Pasquale, Bernardo, and Francesco, arrived on August 4, 1907 at Ellis Island (Source: S.S. Konig Albert Ship's Passenger List, US Immigration, Ellis Island). A spelling mistake on the part of the Census taker caused some confusion, but there is no doubt that this is the same family.

   Vico Equense is a beautiful town on the Sorrento Peninsula overlooking the Mediterranean. Vico Equense, situated on one of the most beautiful stretches of the Neapolitan coast, halfway between Sorrento and Castellammare di Stabia, was founded in the thirteenth century by Charles II of Anjou on the spot where once stood Roman Aequana, celebrated by Silius Italicus for the quality of its wine. Destroyed by the Goths, it was later the feudal seat of many families, then a bishopric until 1799, the year in which the last bishop, Michele Natale, was executed by the Bourbons for his liberal ideals. Nowadays a famous tourist resort, boasting modern accommodation and well-equipped bathing structures, Vico Equense preserves much evidence of its past: the ex-Cathedral or church of the Annunciation, that is the only example of Gothic architecture on the Sorrento peninsula, the Guisso Castle, founded by Charles II of Anjou and later rebuilt between the seventeenth and nineteenth century, and an interesting Antiquarium, exhibiting archaeological material from a necropolis discovered in the urban area and dating back to a period from the seventh to the fifth century BC. Thanks to its favourable position, Vico Equense is the ideal starting point for pleasant excursions to the delightful towns and the places of greatest scenic attraction on the Sorrento peninsula and in Campania.
