A figure of the revered Infant Jesus of Prague stood until recently under the front window of this home, which appears at first to have been built after World War II but occupies a site on which there has long been a house. (That leaves me to wonder whether this is simply a heavily remodeled building.) It belonged to A. Santos in the early 20th century. From the 1950s through the early 1980s, it was the home of Anthony L. Menangas (b 1920), a fisherman, and his wife, Florence A. Menangas (b 1923). In fact, a “Menangas” sign still hangs on the house, suggesting strongly that the current owner, Floran Rozzelle, is a member of the family.

Daniel McClung wrote 14 August 2020: I’m a descendant of Florence Costa. Before it was that house (pictured), it was a garage. Thought I’d share. Florence was the daughter of Elvira Costa, who lived at 15 Alden. Also Floran was the daughter of Florence so you were right on that! I absolutely love what you do on this site! Thank you so much in helping with my Costa family history!
