Too long dismissed as merely a "satellite'
of the older New Orleans organization

The Mafia of Dallas

By Thomas Hunt

"Like other Mafia organizations across the American south, the Dallas Mafia grew from Louisiana roots. In fact some believe the Sicilian-Italian underworld in Dallas was never more than a "satellite" of the older and more influential Mafia of New Orleans. It may be a mistake to consider the Dallas organization to be merely a crew of the New Orleans crime family. However, beginning before the First World War and continuing more than half a century, the Sicilian underworld bosses of Dallas all were transplanted from and maintained connections with the Pelican State."
