  • Bifano, Epifano, Esposito, Muraca Information submitted by John Bifano

    My name is John Bifano, grandson of Giuseppe Epifano who was the son of Francesco Epifano and Carmela Esposito from San Mango. Giuseppe and brothers, Leopoldo , Antonio, Angelo and Saverio emigrated to the US between 1901-1906. They had one sister, Carmela, who remained in San Mango. Their cousins were Vincenzo and Luigi Epifanio from San Mango who also emigrated to the states. Vincenzo and Luigi's parents were Saverio Epifanio and Maria Muraca.

    My grandfather Giuseppe's brother Antonio Epifano was married to Serafina Mendicino of San Mango. Serafina and her son Frank Epifano, born in Carbondale PA in 1906, returned to San Mango around 1908 where Frank married Giuseppina Costanzo about 1925.

Frank traveled between the States and San Mango in the 1920s and 1930s in between stints working in the mines in the Scranton PA area. In 1947 after the end of the Second World War, Giuseppina and her two children emigrated to the states and Serafina likewise returned to the US to join Frank in Scranton. My grandfather Giuseppe Epifano married Felicia "Fannie" Mancuso from Feroleto Antico and my grandmother's sister Francesca "Mary" Mancuso married Serafina Mendicino's brother Antonio Mendicino in a double marriage ceremony in Carbondale PA in 1914.
