I am looking for a daughter that was born to Jack Cacioppo in appx. 1938.
I know the address and telephone number of the family, and know that Jack died in 1990.
We contacted the family about 2 (two) years ago, and they did not want to tell us anything. Possibly, REALLY did not know...
We do understand, as this daughter named Nita was born out of wed-lock to Jack and Louise Stewart Smith or Karnes.
My father-in-law is Nita's brother, William Joseph Smith. NO, they did not have a great family life and William's (Bill's) mother had him at 16, meaning that Nita was born when Louise was around 18 yrs. old.
Have tried not to bother the family, but Nita was turned over to the Cacioppo family when she was around 5 yrs. old. It was this or the State was going to take her and Bill from Louise. Bill (William) went to a family (The Greens)in Texas.
We don't want a family reunion, would just like for Bill to meet his sister.
Bill remembers as a child of around 4-5 yrs old, he was left alone to babysit Nita, and called the fire dept. to report a fire on their street (there wasn't one!) because she was upset and liked the sound of the fire trucks.
There was trouble, and Lousie let the Cacioppo family take her and we don't know what happened to her. One of Jack's sisters (Ollie, Olivia??)was close to andhelped Louise a great deal, then we think moved to California. Did she take Nita with her???
