Important to note is that the Capone family arrived in America through Ellis island.Teresa Raiola came on the ship called the Werra on June 18,1895. (Most books on Capone are erroneous to this fact). Accompanying her was Vincent Capone aged 3 and Raffaele Capone aged 10 months.No mention of Gabriele Capone or Caponi for this similar date.Their ship had left the ports of Naples and Genoa.Teresa gave birth to a total of 8 Children. Vincenzo (James) ,Ralph ,Salvatore(Frank), Alphonse,Amadeo Ermino(John or Mimi), Umberto (Albert John),Matthew Nicholas and Mafalda ( named after Italy's royal princess).
