Searching for the Cozzi family name(s) in or around Benevent

Postby cozzi » 23 Feb 2009, 20:30

I am up against the stops with this one. My great grandfather,
Alberinto P. or possibly Alberindo P. Cozzi b. Nov 6, 1875 came to
the United State on board the British S.S. Olympia, destine
for Brooklyn, NY on November 18, 1895. Census records confirm this
date of immigration as 1895. Died 28 Sep 1951 in
Elyria, OH, US , however had family in Goshen, IN Elkhart County.
The cemetery records show his father’s name as Pasquell and I can
find a Pasquale Cozzi in the 1900 census of New Jersey Somerset Co.
Not sure if Pasguell ever really came here or not.
Now I’m not sure if it was the comune of Benevento or the province
Benevento and can’t seem to find much (in English) on Italian web resources.

Any help/pointer would be much appreciated.

regards,

I believe the correct birth palce should be San Giorgio del Sannio - Benevento Province....

Hope this helps...
