Trying to find information on a lost relative Lawrence Perazzo and his family

+2 votes
Hi, I am looking for information on a lost ancestor Lawrence Perazzo (Perazzo-12). He was always said to be Italian, they lived in California. His wife (cannot find a marriage cert. only a newspaper clipping) died after giving birth and her son ( my grandfather Harold Madsen) was brought up by his Danish Aunt and Grandparents hence my last name Madsen (Madsen-1724)   We heard his uncle paid off the Perazzo family when they wanted to take Harold.  This was told to us be Harold's nonblood Portuguese Uncle.  We would love to find out about the Perazo Family and this lost Grandfather. The parents I have added are not confirmed.

This seems like the closest Perazzo but I have nothing definite to link him to Selma Perazzo (Madsen).  She died in 1921 at 22. She lived in SanJose. He was living with his parents in SanJose in 1920. No record of marriage that I could find or adoption for her son.
