When did Elisa Famigliari Facenda arrive in America

Postby Kimm » 19 Sep 2008, 13:17

Hello again,
I've been trying to find the manifest for Elisa Facenda, wife of Tomasso /Thomas Facenda. I know they were together in New York in 1899 and the 1910 census has them listed as being married for 14 years.
There is a Tomasso Facenda listed on the ship Suevia arrived 26 May 1890, but no Elisa. Tomasso had a wife and children in Italy... so I'm thinking he went back to Italy because the dates the children were born by his first wife are after 1899. Can anyone help solve this puzzle? I've searched but no luck so far.
If I can find when they both arrived in the U.S. it would solve so many questions. Thank you again for all your help. Kimm

Thank you so much... I can't believe you guys. I was going crazy. Everything is making sense. Tommaso did indeed go back to Italy fathered 4 children to his first wife, left and sailed to America with Elisa. In the U.S. he fathered 9 more children... all with Elisa.
His first wife died and Tommaso put the youngest child in an orphange. Now I have to find the date his first wife Cesarina Palladino died just to make sure he wasn't still married to her when he left Italy with Elisa. Too bad he didn't take his youngest daughter with him. She never forgave him.
