Vincenzo Terranova is born and baptized on 27 September 1810 in Corleone, the son of Bernardo Terranova and Leoluchina Maringo. Though he is born the year after they marry, he is not named after either of his grandfathers. Vincenzo's godparents are Gioachino Sanzone and Vincenza, his unmarried sister.

In 1834, Leoluchina Terranova, 50 (b. 1784), is a widow, living with her children Paola, 18 (b. 1816), and Vincenzo, 22 (b. 27 Sep 1810), in the pianito off the strada di Bruno.

Vincenzo marries Lucia Jannazzo, daughter of Luciano Jannazzo and Maria Mule', on 7 June 1840. His father has died by this time.

Vincenzo and Lucia have at least one child, Bernardo (1847).

Bernardo is born and baptized 6 July 1847, named after his paternal grandfather. His godparents are Maestro Vincenzo Ferreri and Vincenza Ciaccia, a married couple.[1]

Bernardo is a known member of the Fratuzzi, the mafia in Corleone. He marries a widow, Angelina Piazza, on 30 July 1873. By this time, Vincenzo has died.

Bernardo's stepson is Giuseppe Morello, who will be a founder of the Genovese crime family in New York City.
