looking for relatives DEMONTE in Pennsylvania (?)

Postby gianse1 » 29 May 2012, 12:14

hello, I ask your precious help in my research.I'm searching if there are discendant of the brothers of my great-grandfather emigrated to America in 1880. Their names were Giuseppe Demonte 1859
Perfetto Demonte 1860
Ilario Demonte 1862
Andrea Demonte 1865. They probably settled in the area of new york, at least at the beginning and they were all together. Their town in Italy is called Torcegno a small town in Trentino (north italy, first austria). The early years continued to have contacts then nothing. Searching the Ellis Island i have not found anything. The only thing I learned is that in 1903 their cousin (Demonte Paul, born Feb. 2 1877, with his wife Ida) landed at Ellis Island to join his brother Charles (Demonte, born April 23, 1873), which then resided in Frederick Pennsylvania. The site is also specified the address, but I can not read ....
I thank all those who can help me.
Thank You very much

Welcome to the Forum !
We would be happy to help you look :D
What were the brothers' grandparent's names?
It may help to locate them on a census if they named their first born children after their grandparents.
Thank you,

Not having any luck locating the brothers or their families on census records (including 1892 & 1905 NY). Also tried NY records on IGG: http://italiangen.org/
It's very unusual to have 4 people not appear on any records. Valarie

thank you very much Valerie.
I don't really know how to search more. Maybe they moved to other areas but I do not know where I can see. :cry:
Unfortunately we have no news .... I would contact if there are descendants of their cousin but I have not found any Robinson by phone number in Washington...

I agree, I thought we may have had a chance with their daughter Lydia Robinson. I tried old address books, cemeteries and obituaries online without success. Robinson is a very common name. Since they weren't on the census in South Strabane Twp. in 1940, perhaps we'll find them when the 1940 US Census is finally fully indexed.
I think you may be correct that the brothers may have 'Americanized' their surname. There's no way of knowing without another clue.
I'm so sorry we weren't successful,
