  • Notes 
    • There is a Giovanni Colarusso who completed a World War I registration card on 12 September 1918, citing his address as 185 Endicott Street, Boston, Massachusetts, age 42, born 13 June 1876, born Italy, occupation Candy Maker, Schraffts Co., in Boston, and nearest relative Carmela Colarusso, wife, at the same address.

      HOWEVER, This Giovanni Colarusso signed a warranty deed for property on Walker Street Extension, Concord, New Hampshire, on 27 February 1913. It seems there are two of the same name, in close proximity, with a wife of the same name, both from Italy.
