In 1888 Mr. Bruno came to the United States, and for the next eight years worked as a laborer on railroads and in the mines, during that peroid saving his money thriftily so that in 1896 he was able to enbark in business as a butcher at Walston, JeffersonCo, Pa. For four years he did a good business at this point, and then sold to come to Rural Valley, Armstrong Co, Pa. Here he established himself as a butcher and general merchant and his progress shows that he was wise in making the change. Although he is one of the pioneer Italian merchants of the valley, his trade is not confined to those of his own nationality, his store being liberally patronized by all the people in the neighborhood.

On Jan 29, 1895, Mr Bruno was married to Josephine Pellegrion, daughter of Frank and Francisca Pellegrino of Castiglione Marittimo Italy. Two children have been born to Mr.and Mrs. Bruno and his family belong to St. Mary's Roman Catholic church at Yatesboro. He is a member of St Joseph's Society and is an execellent representative of the substantial class of Italians who have settled in this county and developed into such reliable business men.

Politically Mr. Bruno is a Republican, but he has never sought office.
