The Cuneo family was founded by Ottilio Cuneo and started as a bootlegging operation ran out of The Bronx and upstate New York in the 1920s. Their front company was a fleet of milk trucks that delivered across the city, which earned their Don the nickname of 'The Milkman'.
The Cuneo family had some businesses in New York City, mostly in Manhattan and The Bronx, but it ran upstate New York. The family also arranged smuggling of Italian immigrants from Canada, all upstate gambling and exercised veto power on state licensing of racing tracks.
In 1946, the Cuneo family became involved with the Tattaglia family against the Corleone family in the Five Families War. The war claimed several of their key members, before Vito Corleone called a hasty peace after the death of his son, Sonny.
During Leo Cuneo's reign the Cuneo family invested heavily in hotels and casinos in Las Vegas, particulary those that were owned by the Corleone family, making Cuneo a multi-millionaire.
