Francesco (Frank) Anselmo was born to Francesco and Vita Guddemi Anselmo in the small village of Burgio. He left Italy and entered the country through New York, New York, on February 11, 1913.
He met Josephine Polito and offered her a good and safe home life, even though he was 11 years her senior, and could not read or write English. They married in January 20, 1917, she was 16 and he just turned 27. He provided for Josephine by being a laborer in the Pueblo Steel Mill. They lived at 1041 Elm Street, and their home was blessed with a new baby about every 2 years. By 1930, they had 5 children, Frank (3/2/1920), Vera Vivian (12/11/1922), Sam (08/27/1923), Mary (3/24/1925) and Michael Anthony (09/24/1928). He registered for the draft in WWI in Pueblo.
According to Frank's naturalization papers, he was 5' 8" tall, weighed 170 lbs, had brown eyes, a light complexion and grey hair (he was 44 at the time in 1934).
