Update: Our volunteers contribute a great deal of their personal time and energy to researching the original families of San Antonio, but these articles may omit info that is unknown to them from time to time. One such omission was recently brought to our attention. Frank Scriveri (1922-1985) had another daughter, Patricia Scriveri, who was not included above. She married James Gartner at San Antonio Church in 1968.
