Polotzola (Palazzolo) Immigration from Roccamena Sicily

Postby yandle » 11 Mar 2007, 15:30

Looking for immigration and any other records for Stefano (Stafford) Polotzola born in Roccamena Sicily around 1858. Parents Franchesco Palazzolo and Vincenza Pennino. Stefano's brothers and sisters were Maria, Giuseppa, and Giuseppe all born in Roccamena. Stefano married Sara Rosalie Ferina in Sicily. Giuseppe married Giuseppa Cascio in sicily. Stefano and Giuseppe came to the US at some point and lived in Iberville Parish, Louisiana and then Stefano moved to St. Landry Parish, Melville, Louisiana and died there in 1946. Stefano and Rosalie Ferina had 8 children, Vincenza and Franchesco born in Italy in 1882? and 1891?. Antonino, Lorenza, Domenico, Giuseppe, Maria, Francesca all born in Louisiana beginning around 1893. Also unable to find Polozola's in Iberville census.

Thanks for any help.
