Mario Puzo's mother was previously married to Antonio Clericucio and had at least 4 children with him who are the stepchildren in the 1930 census. They got married in 1907 and the oldest Clericucio child (Virginia) in the 1930 census was born 1910/1911. Virginia appears in the 1920 census with Tony Puzo, so Tony and Mary must have married before then.
