SALVATORE, or SAM  FUSCO – The Morrison connections.  Salvatore, or Sam as he was known was born around 1893 in Bradford.  Like his siblings moved to Edinburgh with his family.  Unlike his siblings, Sam’s profession was one of Hairdresser.  Some time in or before 1919, Sam  met Wilhelmina Neilson Morrison, whose father was a Shoemaker, and the couple married  on  16th June 1919.  They married at 5 Greyfriar’s Place in Edinburgh in presence of his brother Joseph Fusco who was described as a serving soldier at the time, who would have been his ‘best man’  and Netty Fusco, his sister as the Maid of Honour.    The marriage however was signed by the Sheriff Substitute of Lothian and Peebles, so it was a registered official wedding.  At this time, just after the 1st WW this was a regular occurance in Scotland.
