Notes for Guiseppe Antonio Acurso: JOSEPH ACURSO, JR.
On July 24, 1882, Joseph Acurso, Jr., who is now the proprietor of the Pacific Coast Grocery at No. 400 East Tulare avenue, Visalia, California, was born in Italy. While he was still a small boy his parents, Joseph and Frances A. Acurso, came to the United Stated and settled in Louisiana. There the father was engaged in the grocery business for a time, when they removed to Chicago and lived there for four years. They then came to California and located in San Jose, where they lived for one year, when they removed to San Francisco. Joseph Acurso, Jr., was educated in the public schools in the various cities where his parents lived. In 1906 he left San Francisco and returned to San Jose, remaining there until 1911, when he became a resident of Visalia. On the last day of April, 1914, he opened his present grocery. At that time there were but few families living in the vicinity. But he had faith inthe future of Tulare avenue and the adjoining streets and that faith has been fully justified. With the building up of this section of Visalia his trade has grown and he has added a stock of general merchandise. He built and owns the two-story structure in which he conducts his business, and he is also the owner of other valuable property, all acquired by his industry and strict attention to business. Mr. Acurso was married to Miss Lucy Albanese and they have two children- Frances and Louis. Mr. Acurso is a naturalized American citizen and claims allegiance to the republican party. In local affairs, however, he frequently "scratches the ticket" to vote for the man rather than the party. He is a member of the Loyal Order of Moose, which is the only fraternal society to claim him as a brother.
