Biography

Luciano Gagliano is born at 5AM on 23 July 1853 and baptized the same day as Lucianum. His parents are Tommaso Gagliano and Luigia Ferraro. His godparents are Antonino Ferraro and Benedetta Cinquemani, a married couple.[1][2][3]

Note: A review of the baptismal record indices covering 1853-71 shows only one Luciano Gagliano is born during this time.

Luciano marries Lucia Oliveri, the sister of his brother's wife. They complete the publication requirements for civil marriage in Corleone on 24 September 1880, and marry in church on 29 September. It is the first marriage for either of them. Their parents are all living at this time. The Church record of their marriage calls Luciano's mother Oliva, but other documents, and the name of Luciano's first daughter, confirm her name is Luigia.

Luciano and Lucia have at least six children together: Luigia (1881), Tomasso (1883), two daughters named Orsola (1885 and 1888), and two daughters named Rosaria (1890 and 1892).

Luigia is born and baptized Aloysia 24 July 1881. Her godparents are Biagio Pomilla and Lucia, his unmarried sister.

Tomasso is born 29 May 1883 and baptized Thomam the next day. His godfather is the unmarried Michaele Provenzano.

Luigia and Tomasso are named after Luciano's parents, as is traditional for the first born boy and girl. Two daughters are named Orsola, after Lucia's mother. The first is known from the record of her death at one year and eleven months of age (b. September 1885) on 26 August 1887.

The second daughter named Orsola is born and baptized Ursulam on 26 January 1888. Her godparents are Ignacio Milone and Agnes, his unmarried sister.

The first daughter named Rosaria is born 31 July 1890 and baptized three days later. Her godparents are Domenico Pecoraro and Caterina Salerno, a married couple.[4] She dies at one year and two months of age on 4 September 1891.

The second daughter named Rosaria is born 25 June 1892 and baptized on 13 July. Her godmother is Angela Piazza, wife of Luciano Gagliano. (See the note above with regard to the search for other men named Luciano Gagliano.) [5] She dies at a year and a month of age on 26 July 1893.

John Alcorn describes Luciano Gagliano, 39 (b. 1858---see note above), as a ringleader of the worker's strike in Corleone, the summer of 1893. Although he has no criminal record, he is known by reputation, and intimidates scabs from working.[6]

Dino Paternostro names Luciano as a member of leadership in the Fratuzzi in Corleone around 1900.[7]

A margin note says that Tommaso marries in New York at the Church of S. Lucia on 23 October 1921 with Giuseppa Pomilla, daughter of Biagio Pomilla and Serafina Milone, born in Corleone.[8]
