Re: dragone brothers playing in the USA

Many, many years ago the brothers were playing at venues in America and played a number of songs and announced that one of the songs had been arranged by my cousin Frank Wappat, a man approached them and said he was related to Frank, they told the story to Frank on their return home, the mans name did not mean anything to Frank or me. I delved further into our family history and it turned out that Franks Mam and my Father had a half sister and it was her son to a second marriage and he had emigrated to the USA, we had not been aware of.him.
