passengener listing for ferrizzi

Postby ricndi » 19 Oct 2010, 20:18

Hello.

I recently just found out that my grandfather, Sabato Ferrizzi was traveling with 3 of his friends. They all came from Salerno (montecorvino-rovella possibly), and all settled in the same neighborhood in philadelphia, around 21st & clearfield sts.

The names are:

Sabato Ferrizzi
Guiseppe Picardo
? satinella
? Mastrianni

They were furniture makers and carpenters. I think one of the men was a tailor.
The arrival date would have been right around 1915. They originally had passage on the Luisitania, but they missed their sailing. I'm glad they did! We all know what happened to that ship in 1915!

I cannot find a manifest on ancestry.com with all 4 of these names on it.
Any help would be appreciated!

Hello and welcome! :-)

How sure are you that they traveled together? Did you find manifests with one or two of them?

We'll do what we can to help you search... :-)

Can you give a few details?
What is Sabato's approx. year of birth?
Do you know of parents' names, or siblings? Was he married? If yes, what was his wife's name?

I'm sure you have seen the Naturalization Index Card for Sabato at Ancestry. It contains a Petition # (176888).

Have you sent for his Naturalization Papers? Usually these papers include a Certificate of Arrival that is provided as proof of US entry. It will identify the ship, date, etc.

Grandpop Sabato was born jul 12 1893.

I am sure that these men traveled together.

My father said that Grandpop told him about leaving Italy with his friends so they could start a furniture business in America.

All 4 of them would have been teenagers, or in their early 20's.

I do not have Grandpop's Naturalization papers, but I do have his WWI draft card, which he filled out in 1917.

I'm not that sure of the 1915 date of arrival. I do know that grandpop was supposed to be on the Luisitania, but he missed that sailing.

Yes, that is when he married my grandmom anna.

I have a lot of information on my grandparents, aunts, uncles, etc. The only thing I do not have are listings of Grandpop's ship, if he had any siblings, who his parents were.

He was orphaned at birth and left at a convent. The nuns named him Sabato because he was found on a Saturday. Grandpop was adopted by the Ferrizzi family when he was a few months old. He lived in salerno until around 1915 until he came to Philadelphia.

Hi :D !
This may help in the search

The original spelling may have been Ferruzzi
Surname website: http://italia.indettaglio.it/eng/cognomi/cognomi.html

On his 1917 WWI Card he listed his town of bith as Montecorvino Rovella
(Salerno Province)
On his 1942 WWII Card he listed Salerno

Valerie:

Thanks!

I'm not sure. I have found Ferrizzi, Ferisi, Ferrissi, Ferris, etc. So many spellings. There are immigration listings for 6 or 7 different Ferrizz's that sailed into Ellis Island. I know that this surname is not a common one, but these people could have been family. I think it is Ferrizzi, but I will defiantely check out the other spelling!

No luck on Ferruzzi. Our name is definitely Ferrizzi. All Ferrizzi's that i found arrived at Elis Island between 1898 adn 1913. Too early to be Grandpop or any of his friends. I did find a Franzo Ferrizzi that could be a relation, but no ship record, or census record for that matter. All this so I can possibly find someone who was told the story of how my grandfather came to be adopted and who his real parents might be!
