My Grandpa Victor is somewhat a of a mystery to us. I grew up knowing little about him as my Grandma didn't talk about her family to us. Who knows why?...

I was told by my Mom, that Great Grandpa Victor was a Sheriff, Miner and Cattle Rancher. He was born here in the US, but his parents where from Biasca,Switzerland. Landing in San Fransico. From what I heard, Victor's Mother hated it here and decided to go back to Switzerland and took Victor's little brother with her. I don't know, what his Mother's name was or his brothers. Victor stayed here and at one time, his father Vittoro Pietro Papa was living with him.

Victor, was a Gambler. As where all of his children which accounts for my Grandmother's love of the race track and slot machines! Grandpa Victor was a handsome man..tall well built and Italian. I would have loved to have met him.
