Giuseppe Lagumina is born in Corleone on 11 July 1890 and baptized eleven days later, named after his maternal grandfather. He is the son of Vincenzo Lagumina and Giuseppa Rumore. His godfather is the unmarried Antonino Cusimano.
Giuseppe's aunt by marriage, Leoluchina Armato, age 34 (b. 1871) immigrates on the SS Italia, arriving in New York on 13 November 1905. She accompanies her children, Rosario La Gumina, 16 (b. 1889), Teresa, who appears as Assunta La Gumina, 14 (b. 1891), Augusta La Gumina, 12 (b. 1893), Pasquale La Gumina, 9 (b. 1896), Maria La Gumina, 9 (b. 1896), Antonino La Gumina, 6 (b. 1899), and Francesco La Gumina, 4 (b. 1901). They are going to Leoluchina's uncle Giuseppe Armato at 235 E. 97th St. On the same manifest, Giuseppe La Gumina, 16 (b. 1889), a carpenter, appears. He is going to his uncle Giovanni Rumore, and his brother, whose name I cannot read, at 2089 2nd Ave.
Giuseppe marries Biagia Cimino, age 21 (b. 1895) born in Dennison TX, the daughter of Sebastiano Cimino and Rosa Badulato, on 22 April 1916 in Manhattan.
Biagia's sister, Antonia, is the widow of another known Morello associate, Fortunato lo Monte. After her husband is killed in 1914, Antonina and her children lived with Biagia and Giuseppe.
Lagumina is denied citizenship because of "immoral character."
Giuseppe is killed 17 May 1921.
