  • Notes 
    • From Mongaup Valley, New York (not sure if this is birthplace). This is near Monticello, NY.

      The Manzi family may have had a trotting horse farm in Monticello, NY. They may have occasionally attended races in Saratoga Springs.

      Jack and Frank Tragni say that Maria had New York City relatives who came to Saratoga Springs occasionally. Also, one of her sisters married a Sominne (spelling?).

      Mary used to rent rooms to cooks from the nearby Piping Rock nightclub. This was a famous nightclub in the area, apparently attracting a clientele from organized crime. One web link mentions that Meyer Lansky operated the Piping Rock as a casino in the 1930's: http://www.metroland.net/back_issues/vol_26_no35/special_features/30_saratoga2003.htm

      1920 census lists her arriving in 1900 in the US.

      May have died in Cook County, Illinois. Is this her record?
