FAMILY CONNECTIONS : - COLOMBO FAMILY
The future Colombo Family originated from a split amongst the early Palermitani group. There is some evidence that this occurred as early as 1910-12, and that Manfredi Mineo was an early leader. By the late 1920’s a faction from Villabate, led by Giuseppe Profaci, seem to have assumed leadership. As they were one of the smaller NYC Families, the familial relationships seem to be less intense than in other NYC groups.
