        Ray was the second Coniglio (after Leonard) to be born in the United States.  Our parents Gaetano and Rosa Alessi Coniglio and my eldest brother Gaetano (Guy), who was born in 1913, emigrated from Serradifalco, Sicily in 1913 and 1914.  Ray was born in Wood (Woodvale) or Robertsdale Pennsylvania on 23 May 1918.  The date is from family memory, as it was recorded in Altoona, Pennsylvania, and the record subsequently burned in an accidental fire.
        Robertsdale did not have a Catholic church at the time, and it's believed that Ray, his elder brother Leonard, and younger brother Phil were either taken to be baptized at Immaculate Conception Church in nearby Dudley, Pennsylvania, or were baptized at home by a travelling priest from the church.  Information given from church records to our cousin Michael Insalaco in 2018 by Father Matt Baum appears to indicate that Ray was baptized on 14 September 1918.
