Hello Mr. Romano,
I am a family researcher looking for information about my husband’s great grandfather, Michele (Michael) Marino.
Michele (Michael) Marino originated from Brindisi, Italy and was born about 1857 to Nicola Marino and Moddalena LaRocco.
Michael Marino lived in Chicago from about 1890 to 1927.
He resided at:
In 1900 – 122 Austin Ave., Chicago and was a laborer working on the streets.
In 1910 – 946 Grand Ave., Chicago and worked as a teamster (wagon).
Are these locations part of the Little Italy neighborhood?
He also had an Italian import store. I do not know the year or the location.
I am attaching a photograph with the hope that you might be able to give me some ideas about the store.
Michele (Michael) died in June of 1927.
Thank you in advance for any insight you might proved.

Your husband’s name is?
Many IA who settled into the Grand Ave neighborhood, (just north of Taylor Street’s Little Italy) originally came to Taylor Street’s Little Italy first. I will put your email in our “Lost and Found” section which will be in operatoin shortly.
If you have any information for Linda regarding Michele (Michael) Marino, please leave a comment below, or contact Taylor Street Archives.
