John Fraddosio
1860 - 1900
John Fraddosio was born about 1860 in an unknown place overseas in Italy and died about 1900 somewhere in Florida. Dates for birth and death are estimated. He lived to be about 40 years old.

We were told his name was John. The 1900 census shows Antonio, Joseph and Antonio M. Fradosia living in Apalachicola (Franklin County) Florida. Antonio Sr. was born in Italy while his two sons, Joseph and Antonio M., were born in FL. One of these men, or their relative, may have been married to Billy Halley. We also know Mr. Fradosio had children from a previous marriage to a unknown wife. In the 1885 census Billy states she is a widow.
