Pope Pious Xgreenspun.com : LUSENET : Catholic : One Thread
Redcently I learned who Pope St. Pious Xth's parents, brothers and sisters were and I compared the dates of their births with my relatives. I now believe it is Pope Pious Xth's father, Giovanni battista Sarto who is the one I am looking for. Does anyone have Giovannie's brother's and sisters names and dates of birth? I am looking especially for a Jacob Sarto born in Italy to see if he is the brother of Giovannie Sarto. Thank you!

Eunice, the popes' names are "Pius" ("Pio" in Italian), not "Pious."
A genealogy site has three pages that provide an answer to you ---
The first page confirms that Giovanni Battista Sarto was the father of Giuseppe Sarto (the pope). It also tells that HIS father's first name is not known, so he is listed as "? Sarto" ---
The second page lists the children of "? Sarto" -- including Giovanni Battista and, as you suspected, Jacob (but no sisters) ---
The third page tells about Jacob, who went to live in Germany and changed his surname to Sartor before coming to live (and die) in the U.S.
