    All I could find were death records for these 2 Messina brothers who were shot on the same day, but they don't match the birth year or first name. There is a record for a Ignazio Messina but she is listed as female. There are other death records for Messinas in Detroit but only up to 1920 at this link: http://seekingmichigan.org/discover-collection?col...

    Here's a helpful hint; Don't drink and type. As typed, your ggf died 70 years before he was born:

    born: approx. 1895 in Sicily

    died: approx. 1825 around Detroit, MI

    I'd look him up, but I have the better part of a bottle of Cabernet influencing my motor skills . . . .

    This is all I could find, and it might not be him. Chicago is close to Detroit,though.
