DeLuca, Longo, Morrone, Cosenza

Postby JLDeLuca » 07 Jun 2009, 23:08

I'm trying to tie together (or untangle!) some family tree items. My grandpa, Louie DeLuca emigrated to Pueblo, CO in about 1910. I know from talking to my father and from this elegant effort:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.anc ... MorrPg.htm

that Genaro Morrone's daughter, Emelia Morrone, married Phillipe DeLuca (the website shows it to be Charles?, but this is in error), who was Louie's father. What I'm trying to find out is which ship Louie emigrated on, which family members were with him, and then if there is information on where the DeLuca family lived near Cosenza. I hope to trace the line back to before Phillipe and his father, Pietro. Finally, Louie married Maria (Mary) Longo in Pueblo. She was born in NY, but I'd like to find out more about her family in Calabria. Thanks!

Valarie,
Thanks very much, I really appreciate your help. That is the clan, and all looks accurate. I know Phillipe eventually joined the family in Pueblo. The Trenta references must be Calabria as there is no connection in the Alto Adige. Thanks again,
Jim

Not sure if it helps any, but the Morrone clan emigrated from Trenta, Cosenza, Calabria. Trenta is a small town of about 2700 people, which includes several different areas that are somewhat separated.

I am also of the Morrone line from Trenta. My great great grandfather was Vito Morrone, and my great grandfather was Gennaro. Both were from Trenta.

Hope this helps!

Yes, thanks. It looks like Vito and my great grandmother, Emelia, were siblings, so we are distant cousins! Did you look at the link I put in the original post? A few of the names are incorrect, but there is a lot of good information on the Morrone line:

http://freepages.genealogy.rootsweb.anc ... MorrPg.htm

I talked to my dad this last weekend, and he said that those extended families came over together and settled in the same area, no surprise.

JL. I don't think that Amelia's brother Vito was the same person as my great great grandfather. My great grandfather Gennaro was born in 1873 in Trenta (I have his official birth and marriage certificates from the Comune of Trenta), so I don't think it's possible that your Vito is his father since Vito Pasquale Morrone wasn't born until 1882. However, I'm sure that this is a related family branch. Morrone is a very common name in Trenta, and I would bet that the two were cousins at the very least, and so are we!

If you're interested, the Italian government has a website specifically for Italian-American immigrants from Cosenza province in Calabria. I will provide the link below, but here is some birth information on a Pietro De Luca, which is the result of a search I did on the site:

Municipality of COSENZA. Volume number 1-PRE, document number 262 page -
Pietro De Luca born on 10/07/1812 (July 10, 1812).

The website is:

http://88.59.143.158/ascs_web/index.faces

Registration is free, and you can use the site in english or italian. I recommend doing one search at first with all the information you know in the search bars. If that pulls up nothing, just use first and last name and search through the documents. So far, I have been able to locate my great great grandparents' marriage record, the military records for my great great uncles (my great grandfather Gennaro's brothers), and the possible birth record of my great great grandfather Vito Morrone. The site can be frustrating to use because so much information is missing from the records, but the government is literally going through thousands of old church records and some municipal archives to compile this information, so there are bound to be delays. Also, if you do find a record, you can request to have a copy mailed to you! I'm still waiting for some I requested, but I'm hopeful they will come within 2-3 years. I know that sounds absurd, but the government moves VERY slowly in Italy. It took three years to receive my great grandfather's birth certificate even though I mailed a request (with money) directly to the Mayor and record keeper of the town, who happens to be named Morrone! It took another two years to get my great grandfather's marriage certificate. GOOD LUCK!
