Birth: Oct. 29, 1879, Italy
Death: Jul. 14, 1981
Talbot County
Maryland, USA

Frank (originally Francesco) CAPPA was born in northern Italy & came to the United States in 1907, arriving in Baltimore after a 17-day voyage; in 1973, when he returned to Italy, the trip by air took only one day. He had graduated from an agricultural college in Italy & worked on various farms in Maryland mostly in Queen Anne's & Talbot Co. He worked & lived at first at Sparrows Point, outside of Baltimore. He learned English from a German couple who ran the local store. He drank a cup of coffee with a shot of whiskey about four times a day. "It has a good taste. It makes you drunk and sober at the same time," he said. From the time that he was 12 years old, in Italy, he had been used to drinking coffee sweetened with grappa, the local red wine. He was still doing pushups & gardening at the age of 98.
