Hi, I' m try to find my ancestors here in the USA. I'm moved from Italy 4 years ago, and a was thinking from here my research was too easy, but do not was true.
The names are:
Cacciatore Salvatore b. 1874 (father)
Lomanto Giuseppina (Josephine) b. 1879 (mother)
Cacciatore Giuseppina (Josephine) b. 1900 (daughter)
Cacciatore Marianna b. 1905 (daughter).
I foud the mother , the father, the daughter Josephine in the 1930 Census in Passaic, NY.
No traces of Marianna.
Josephine married Sam Esposito and had 2 children, Philip and Sam.
Where I can find Marianna? Or Philip and Sam?
Thank you in advance
Roberta

State (Year) SSN issued: New Jersey (Before 1951 )

Not sure about Sam Esposito.

In the 1920 census, there is a Sam Cuetol, with wife Josephine, daugther Josephine...no Marianna. This is a stretch, but same date of immigration, and all at the correct ages. Might be the correct family.
Here is a reference for the page:
1920 United States Federal Census > New Jersey > Passaic > Passaic Ward 4 > District 56 page 24B.

Hope this helps. It is possible that Sam Esposito is still living...might want to check the phone directories on line. There were a couple of death records for Savatore Esposito in NJersey, but not sure who is whom.


Good luck!

Oh, and when the mother and children arrived in the US on the Madonna on 4 Nov 1911, they were on their way to Rochester, NY. Guess they went to New Jersey not long after they arrived.

Essgee's 1911 manifest find, lines 9 to 11
Page 1
Page 2
Giuseppa Lo Manto, age 32
Giuseppa Cacciatore, age 10
Marianna Cacciatore, age 6
All last residence: Mussomeli
Nearest relative in Italy: father/grandfather Salvatore Lo Manto
Destination: Rochester NY to join husband father Salvatore Cacciatore
at 405 State St

Marianna is on the manifest but not on the 1920 census. She could have married albeit at a very young age, she could have passed away due to an illness or accident, or she could have been with another family as you mentioned.

Sometime I think I do not have any lock for finding my family.
No trace of Louis Esposito, survive brother of Salvatore Esposito, and any of Marie Tarlton, survive sister.
Thanks again for all your help
