Gabriel DeDonato

Postby demari18 » 04 Sep 2015, 12:37

Looking for immigration information for Gabriel DeDonato who was born in Teano, Caserta, Italy. He was born on March 28, 1894 according to his US WWI draft card and immigrated to the USA in 1910. He lived for a time in Rhode Island before moving to California. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you - DeMari
