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 Miner and Cattle Rancher. He was born here in Los Angeles Ca 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. Grandpa married my Grandma Sadie 14 Jul 1908 in Socorro, New Mexico.

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..short, well built and Italian. I would have loved to have met him.

  Pio Papa (1913 - 1944)*
  Sero Papa (1920 - 1978)*
*Calculated relationship
Note: As told to me by Family. Grandpa Victor, didn't get a headstone because he was not well liked by the Stozzi Family. Nevertheless , it annoys me that they felt Grandpa shouldn't have a head stone. He's buried next to Grandma Sadie .
