Rocco and Filomena Russo

Postby Kpanda » 22 May 2009, 00:07

I am looking for descendants of Rocco( born 1854) and Filomena (born 1857) Russo who emigrated to to NYCity from Italy around 1890. They lived on the lower east side and had the following children: Carmela, Vincent J., Antoinette, Catherine and John. The last three were born in NYC befinning from 1892 to around 1900. Catherine died in the Spanish influenza in 1919 and left a baby (my father-in-law) but little else is known about her since my husband's father remarried and lost touch. From her death certificate, I can track the family to Brooklyn where Vincent and John became photographers between 1920 and 1930. Vincent was married to Grace and had a daughter named Filomena. John married someone named Mary but I have no information about children since there were none listed on the 1930 census.

if anyone has any information about this family, I would so appreciate it.
