I read the Al Capones wiki page and noticed a descrepancy with the location of Albert Francis birth cisty - he was born in New York (more probably in a Park Slope area hospital in Brooklyn)not Chicago this should be corrected. 06790Guy (talk) 02:57, 16 September 2010 (UTC)

Threats to kill Edward Kennedy[edit] New information from released FBI files in Kennedy. — Preceding unsigned comment added by Malau (talkcontribs) 09:04, 2 August 2011 (UTC)

Notable? Yes[edit]

"Sonny" Capone gets page time in virtually every Capone biography (including pictures), as well as other books about organized crime and the Chicago gangs. He was a sharp contrast to his father. I find it hard to believe his "notability" has even been called into question. Zephyrad 17:35, 26 October 2007 (UTC)

Absolutely notable, or at least interesting. In this particular case, it is remarkable that someone associated with a time so remote survived until so recently. I believe his death date was not widely known at the time it occurred.--Jrm2007 (talk) 11:45, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

Agree - So, the notability tab was removed. Pknkly (talk) 03:08, 4 April 2009 (UTC)

Is there an article in which his death is covered?--Jrm2007 (talk) 11:48, 1 May 2008 (UTC)

If he legally changed his name in 1965 and then lived until 2004 shouldn't his change of name be at least refered to in the title of the page? (talk) 03:45, 26 July 2009 (UTC)

The last sentence about his mother's death is confusing and needs to be reworked. She passed syphillis to her son, not the other way around. Her death at his birth may have been related to that illness, or not. — Preceding unsigned comment added by (talk) 16:30, 24 June 2012 (UTC)

Congenital syphilis[edit]

He was born with congenital syphilis, which his father had contracted years before.

This is misleading. Congenital syphilis is contracted by the foetus from its mother, not from the father. (talk) 00:23, 3 December 2012 (UTC)
