The reason I am going off the 1911 arrival with the SS Ancona is because my grandfather told me he was meeting Bartholomeo Croce, who was already in America, who would be his uncle, and my grandfather told me that his grandfather is Danato and that his grandmother is Anna Croce (Ranalli).
Yes Ben, It'ok but you now have documents stating another thing.... maybe the family memories were wrong....
Do you know if Bartolomeo Croce had a son named Antonio? Tha arrival manifest is very clear...
If you read the arrival manifest you can see well what we are saying... Laura
On the 1911 arrival manifest (Ship Ancona to Philadelphia) we can see:
line 11: Croce Endido?? age 18, from Frigenti leaving in Italy his sister Concettina (annotation on his line is: with mother 12)
line 12: Leone Teresina, age 52 from Frigento, leaving in Italy her daughter Concettina line 13: son Croce Antonio, age 14,
line 14: daughter Catalda [Croce], age 16
line 15: son Alfonso [Croce], age 11
in the second page of this manifest Leone Teresina declared to join his brother in law Croce Bartolomeo ... the child declared to join their uncle Bartolomeo Croce.....
So, if this Antonio is your grandfather it seems his mother is Teresina Leone and Bartolomeo croce his uncle.... Do you know if the other child were your grandfather's siblings?
I didn't look into the manifest enough to realize their were siblings there or not - to be frankly honest, I'm pretty new to all of this genealogy stuff and just started doing all of this to track the lineage for my; now 14 months; child. So I'm not too good at reading these manifests and figuring out all of the information on them - mainly the reason why I came here.
I was basing everything off the information my grandfather gave me that his grandfather is Danato and his grandmother is Anna and that his father came to America to find Bartolomeo. Thats all I had to go off of, and doing my search, this SS Ancona and what I could gather from the manifest seemed to be the best bet.
