                                 Alberto Bufalino                  (B. 5-22-1911; D. 12-30-2006)
                                 (B. 9-29-1903;
                                  D. 2-25-1994)           (According to Frank Sheeran, Russell and Carrie
                                                                 Bufalino had no children.)

(According to Frank Sheeran, William Bufalino -- who grew up in West Pittston and who earned a law degree from Dickinson School of Law in 1942, and who became a lawyer for the Teamsters and for Jimmy Hoffa in Detroit -- was not a first cousin of Russell Bufalino.  Sheeran says that Russell Bufalino allowed William Bufalino to represent himself to third persons as being a first cousin of Russell Bufalino in order to advance himself.  This accounts for the common misconception that William Bufalino, Hoffa's Lawyer, was a first cousin of Russell Bufalino.  William Bufalino's family was from Montedoro, Sicily, as was Russell Bufalino's family.  So William was probably distantly related to Russell Bufalino, but was not his first cousin.)

Many sources indicate that Rose LaTorre, wife of Scranton-Pittston LCN founder Steve LaTorre, was a sister of Santo Volpe.  However, this may not be correct; her maiden name may have been Rosina Fantione, since in 1913 a Francesco Mantione who arrived at Ellis Island in 1913 from Montedoro, Italy gave as his brother-in-law one Stephano LaTorre, of 19 Railroad Street, Pittston, Pa.

Of all the genealogies I have constructed so far, I am the least confident of the following Sciandra genealogy.  There is a good deal of supposition in this Sciandra genealogy.  It could be pretty far off base.
