any relation to Antonia Pas Queshi?

Postby michaelross » 17 Nov 2008, 02:08

the document showing that name was handwritten, so there may be a slight variation to it. Maybe one word...Pasqueshi?

Any help on the surname would be helpful also.

This line has troubled my family for four generations.

On an SSN application, my gggrandfather "Michael (Mike) Ross" had her listed as his mother. His father is listed as "Jim Ross". My grandfather's sister said that Mike changed his name when he immigrated in 1895 from Italy, with his sister Mary. That is why I am checking his mother's name; it is the only one that sounds like it may be her actual name.

Maybe someone happens to be related to any of them?

Thanks.

The greek word PASCHA was connected to the word PASCHEIN "to suffer, to leave"sothat the name became associated with the passion,death and resurrectioniof Christ. The Latin PASCHA in the late middle ages became PASCHUA being mated to PASCUA "pasture and fields of pasture" and, of course the word PASQUALI as a surname

Similarly PASQUESHI is no great leap from the PASCHA,PASCHUA, PASCUA and PASQUALI. It is no great leap to view the surname PASQUESHI as an alteration or derivation of the above combinations.

This is merely an opinion, an anecdote as it were,of su on my part since I am not a professional linguist of italian surnames but I do have access to the Dictionary of Italian surnames which assisted me.

Do you have any additonal information to provide about the oriign of the Pas Queshi surname since its root is Greek. =Peter=

You seem to know much more than I do.

I have family history information which stops, on one line, with Mike Ross. I ordered a copy of his SSN application and saw the information about his mother listed.

I am exploring different possibilities to try and find more information on Mike Ross. All over the internet, any information about him stops with him.

I am just trying to get back further.

Thanks for all the info thus far.

Check out his Naturalization records. I would have the town he came from and the correct spelling of his last name.

Try the circuit court for Eastern Pennsylvania if he lived within that jurisdiction. There is a website www.footnote.com which may offer you a freebie for locating Michele Rossi Petiton for Citize nship. =Peter=

There are a number of naturalizations for the name "Michele Rossi".
If you can provide further detail on Mike, state in which he lived as well as birthdate, we can provide you with a copy of the actual document itself.

You all are like a bunch of genealogical good samaritans.

Mike Ross changed his name early, and therefore all his kids took the last name Ross.

I do not know all their names, but one is Ernest - my ggrandfather. I have the names at home, but I think some were Carlos, William?

Mike Ross' wife was born in Virginia in 1881. Her name was Mary Elizabeth Weinman. She was not Italian; her parents both immigrated from Germany shortly before she was born.

I think Mike Ross and Mary Weinman met in New York where Mike worked for a time as a translator I believe.

They then moved to Pennsylvania where my ggrandfather, and most if not all, his brothers and sisters were born.

This all looks like him. The children's names and ages match what I have too.

Thanks for looking for all this information.

The next thing I need to do is use the info to find any records that would show his original last name. Someone in the family thought it started with an "M"...but no one knows anything for sure.
