Biagia Cascio is born 4 June 1884 at 11:30 PM, at 3 Via Banditore, Corleone, to Giuseppe Cascio, age 32, and his wife Angela Grizzaffi, both contadini. She is baptized Blasiam on 7 June. Her godparents are Joseph Vaccoro and Josepha la Torre, who is unmarried.
In ten years, her sister Rosa will be born at the same address.
Her father, Giuseppe, dies at age 46 (b. 28 Jul 1852) on 6 January 1899 at 4:30 pm.
In November 1901, Biagia's mother, Angela, and four of her siblings immigrate to New York, where they join Angela's sister, Salvatrice.
A margin note on Biagia Cascio's birth record says that she marries (the remarkably similarly named) Biagio Cascio in 1902. Actually, she marries Giuseppe Cascio, son of Biagio Cascio and Caterina Morello, on 18 November 1902. This record contains a dispensation due to second degree consanguinity. Biagia and Giuseppe are first cousins.
According to family lore, Giuseppe and Biagia send olive oil to her family in New York, to sell to their neighbors there.
