Nicodemo and Raffaela
Dominick Belluchie 1888 - 1893
Dominick was the first child to be born to Raffaela and Nick. He was born in Italy, probably Morcone also and in one of the months between September and December of 1888. It is very possible that he was born in November as this is often given as Dominick
birth month and it is possible this is where the confusion arose.
Dominick lived with his mother and his grandparents in Italy until he was three years old. His
Raffaela and Dominick sailed to America, probably in 1892 and it was the first
time that his father had seen him. When he was just five years old, he was pushed from a bridge and died of the injuries that he suffered. He is buried at Lake City.
