Biography

Antonino Cascio is born early on 9 January 1860 and baptized the same day. His parents are Marco Cascio and Tommasa Cusimano; his godfather is Giuseppe Cusimano, unmarried.[1]

In 1903, Don Antonino is a witness to the wedding of Don Giuseppe Navarra and Caterina di Miceli, parents of Dr. Michele Navarra. This is the first record that calls Antonino a don. Antonino's father, Marco, is a borgese, and the family's power can be traced back at least another generation. A 1962 Italian Senate hearing calls Antoninio a "capofamiglia," the head of a family.[2]

Antonino marries Rosalia di Miceli, Caterina's sister, on 28 November 1906. This marriage record contains a dispensation, dated 16 November, required due to second and third degree consanguinity. They are first cousins, once removed.[3] They are first cousins, once removed. In addition, they are also half 2nd cousins through Rosalia Pennino and half 5th cousins twice removed through Antonina La Rosa.

Another of Antonino's cousins, once removed, is Salvatrice Cascio, who marries Giuliano Riela in 1907. Riela is in mafia leadership, as well.

Antonino and Rosalia have at least two children, Tommasa (1907) and Antonino (1909).

Tommasa is born in on 13 August 1907 and baptized on 17 August 1907, named after her paternal grandmother. Her godmother is her paternal aunt Carmela Cascio, wife of Stefano Cascio.[4]

Antonino is born on 1 January 1909 and baptized the same day. His godfather is Giuseppe Cascio (very likely his paternal uncle), who is single.[5]

Margin notes on both Tommasa and her future husband's baptismal records indicate they marry on 23 February 1936 in Corleone. Tommasa marries Dr. Michele Navarra, the notorious mafia leader.[6] The 1962 Italian Senate hearing on the mafia confirms that Navarra is married to Antonino and Rosalia's daughter.[2]
