Welcome to IG!
Have you located a ship manifest? Draft registration? Did he marry here in the states? There are a number of documents which can be obtained and possibly locate this info.

Hi and welcome to the Forum!
Did you need any assistance in locating records?
Thanks! Valarie

If this is the correct death record, it indicates he had a SS #

CASINI SAMUEL
08/08/1883
Mother’s Maiden Name GEMMI
Father’s Surname: CASINI
Death County: MARIN
06/12/1941
SS # 549-24-0294 (CA 1936-1950)
Age: 57 yrs

You may want to order his Social Security Application SS-5

About the SS Application:
http://genealogy.about.com/od/online_re ... equest.htm

The SS-5, or Application for Social Security Number is a great resource for learning more about individuals who died after about 1960, and generally includes the following:

Full name
Full name at birth, including maiden name
Present mailing address
Age at last birthday
Date of birth
Place of birth (city, county, State)
Father's full name
Mother's full name, including maiden name
Sex
Race as indicated by the applicant
Whether the applicant ever applied for Social Security or Railroad Retirement before
Current employer's name and address
Date signed
Applicant's signature


Order form SSA-711 (can be done online):

Thank you for the help. I have a copy of his naturalization certificate and that is where I got the information of his immigration date however, I have not been able to locate him on a manifest to Ellis Island. I have been attempting to get copies of his immigration papers from NARA Genealogy project to no avail at this time. Yes, he did marry in America and I believe it was in Northern California possibly San Francisco.

I have found a Casini family who immigrated to San Francisco. Father was Davino? Sons were Enrico and Settimo, originally from the province of Lucca in Tuscany. If you think these are possible relatives, let me know and I'll post the manifests.

Thank you for your kind response. At this time I do not know if Davino, Enrico or Settimo are a part of the CASINI family I am researching however, when I find out one way or an other I will let you know.
Kindest regards,
