I sent a request for help finding my great grandparent Anthony August Campagna’s brothers & sister, I hope that you can help. We all lived on Taylor St. at one time or another.
I’m also looking for our best friend’s father’s info.
He was shot & killed outside a candy & newspaper store at 1064 Taylor on Jan 8 1937. There’s a large article written in the Police Gazette at the time.
Ben J. Greco married to Mary Greco both from Colabria, Italy.
Thanks for any help you can give, send info to me please

Thank you for sending your family history to the Taylor Street Archives. It will be an asset to the history of the neighborhood.
We will also begin to check out the Campagna Family. We did know a Ralph Campagna who was a teacher. Could he be a relative?
We are developing a part of the Archives titled Lost and Found so people can ask about relatives and others can repond. Hope to hear from you soon.

I don’t know about a Ralph Campagna at all, but who knows.
The other info I was asking about was on a shooting on Taylor St. 1064, it was Jan 8 1937.
Ben J. Greco was shot outside the candy & newspaper store, he lived next door to it. Ben & Mary Greco had 3 sons.
Fred 1932 who is my close friend & he asked me to see what you could find out about the murder of his father. Ben was 4 at the time & knows that there was a big article in the Police Gazette at the time. So I tried to find something on the internet but couldn’t find a thing.
Thanks for you help.
If you have any information for Midge regarding the Campagna family, or the murder of Ben J. Greco, please leave a comment below, or contact Taylor Street Archives.
