James & Rose Arata

Postby LindaMulvihill » 07 Jul 2009, 14:21

I am having trouble locating my great great grandparents; James & Rose Arata listed on Philadelphia Census 1900 as living at Shrines Street: born in Italy in 1858 & 1855 , both immigrated in 1878. I cannot find them at Castle GArden and AM trying to figure the best way to search port of Phiadelphia ships if I don;thave a narrower date of imigration. Can anyone help??? I believe that James is the brother of Louis Arata Philadelphia Fruit Dealer.

Italian woman never lose their maiden name identity only children take on fathers name so it is unlikely that her documents would be Arata but sometime the preparer of the ships manifest in Italy was not italian and automatically would put her down as Arata. In any event go to www.stevemorse.org/index.html =Peter=

Hi Linda :D

Just to try to help you I was checking Ancestry.com to see if I was able to find at least the 1880 census for the family as I saw that their first son Charles was born in PA on 1879....
Found this possible:

1880 United States Federal Census
about Jos'h. Arata
Name: Jos'h. Arata
Home in 1880: Philadelphia, Philadelphia, Pennsylvania
Age: 23
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1857
Birthplace: Italy

Spouse's Name: Roslin
Father's birthplace: Italy
Mother's birthplace: Italy

Occupation: Fruiter
Marital Status: Married

Charles Walder 60

Address seems: 6 North Front Street West Side - Centennial Place
I noticed too that in the 1900 census the family had another boarder named Barbere Tony (female age 54), in this 1880 census they have another person living with them a female age 61 named Mary Barber.. just a coincidence?

These are the Philadelphia city directories for the Aratas living there on 1881 - 1887 - 1891 - 1895, could you check them and see if you can find the right family?

Maybe James real italian name was Giuseppe/Joseph?

Laura,
Thanks for you research. It is my guess that these Arata's must be related.
My great uncle Joseph Arata was born in Philadelphia in 1903. Though the dates of birth are very close for Joseph and Roslin in the 1880 census, there is no Charles Arata listed on that census who would have been a 1 yr. old. It could be the language barrier. Because the occupation of the "fruiter" appears again in 1900. I am going to apply for the birth certificate for Charles born on May 4, 1879, and see where that leads me. I still can't find and immigration records for them in 1878.

I just came across this post. I am a direct relative of a Louis Arata that was in the import/export business of fruit around the turn of the century. However, he was not out of Philadelphia - but New York. My suggestion is that you search the entry details for Ellis Island in NY, as your ancestors may have landed in NY and then migrated to Philadlphia. Good luck.
