SAVERIO CAPANO, general merchant and notary public at Rural Valley, Pa., was born in San Donato, Ninea, Italy, Oct. 16, 1871, son of Dominic and Anna Maria (Martino) Capano.

Until he was thirteen years old Saverio Capano lived in his native place, and attended the schools of his neighborhood. At that time he came to the United States and secured employment on railroad construction, and later at other work in different parts of Pennsylvania until 1889. As opportunity offered he attended school to learn the English language, in Philadelphia, Clearfield and Bellefonte, Pa. In 1891 he returned to Italy and remained there until 1894, when he came back to Pennsylvania and resumed railroad work. In 1899 he located in Rural Valley, Pa., and embarked in the general merchandise business, in which he has been eminently successful. In 1905 he was made a notary public, and he is still holding that office.
