Achille was fluent in several languages and was capable of reading and writing in English, German, French & Italian. Indicating that his parents spent money to educate him.
I believe he got this education from the priests at the church in San Giuseppe. My aunt recalls him saying that “he lived above the village and always had to come down, with his brother, to the church for lessons”

As seemed the norm at the time his parents did not spend any money on the education of his sisters.

Achille’s two sisters emigrated to USA

Assunta Maria and Filomena
