Albert Capone is Notable.


Albert Capone was in Chicago but did not get involved with the Chicago Outfit. Albert used aliases for a long time before legally changing his name in 1942 to Rayola, a version of his mother’s maiden name. He tried to avoid the spotlight.[citation needed]

He married Dorothy.[citation needed]


ublished in the Chicago Tribune (IL) on Jun. 18, 1980:

Mass for Albert John Rayola, brother of the late Al Capone, crime chieftain in Chicago in the Prohibition era, will be at 11 a.m. Wednesday in St. Terrence Catholic Church, 4300 W. 119th Pl., Alsip.

Rayola, 76, died Saturday in his home in Hickory Hills. He changed his family name at a court hearing Oct. 14, 1942.

Rayola, in contrast to his brother Al, had few brushes with the law. One occurred in 1962, when he purchased a federal gambling tax stamp and failed to register it with the Cook County clerk's office as required by law. At the time he was involved in a restaurant business in suburban Stickney. Available records show no disposition of the case.

In 1958, Rayola was fined $25 plus $6 court costs on a charge that he beat his wife, Dianna. The couple were later divorced.

Also in 1958, he was served with a subpoena to testify at hearings of the U.S. Senate Rackets Investigating Committee, which was looking into organized crime. He threw the subpoena on the floor and denied that he was a member of the Capone family.

A spokesman for the Chicago Crime Commission said Rayola was active in gambling in Cook County in the 1950s, but in recent years had worked as a bartender in suburban restaurants.

He is survived by a brother, John Martin, and a sister, Mafalda Maritote.
