Looking for information on the Trombetta family

Postby Gracelesslady23 » 18 Dec 2008, 04:03

Hi all--

Just found this forum. I'm looking for information regarding the Trombettas. From what I've read on other forum's, apparently looking for a Trometta in Italy is like looking for a Smith or a Jones. Here's what I have so far..

Silviano Joseph Trombetta came to the US in 1906 from Terricina, Italy at the age of 18. If my information is correct, he came alone. He married Antonetta Evangelista (Not positive about the spelling here), also of Italian descent though since they met in the US I don't know if she was born here or Italy. They lived in the New York area, most likely in Richmond county.

I believe they had eight children together --Gladys, Margaret, Josie, Salvatore, Mary, Julia, Nina, and Anna.

Salvatore, the only son, changed the spelling of the name to Trompetto.

I have the birthday and death date of Silviano-- Born April 5th 1887 (or possibly 1888) and died April 5th 1967. I have absolutely no information regarding Antonetta Evangelista except that she was younger than her husband.

I can most likely find out information regarding the children if that might help at all.

Any information would be greatly appreciated.

Laura--thank you so much for your research. A few things confused me, such as the ages not seeming to line up in all of them. For instance, I knew that Antoinette was younger than Silviano, but for Margaret to have been 20 when Antoinette was 34 means that they were married when Antoinette was 14. Which, aside from seeming shockingly young in this day and age, doesn't seem to match Silviano and Antoinette living with her parents when she was 17 and he was 22 with, not only no mention of a daughter, but a five year gap in their own ages instead of an eight year gap. Yet the information for Silviano was right in both, right down to that he was a railway worker...so I'm confused. :)

However, if his wife's surname is in fact Feleco instead of Evangelista, that would certainly explain why I couldn't find her on passanger lists, or indeed anywhere else, so this gives me a whole brand new name to search under--and great information on her side of the family, which I was starting to think a lost cause.

I never would have even thought to play around with the spelling of the name enough to have found all of this. Again, thank you for your help.
