Looking for brother of my Grandmother

Postby vispinel » 03 Jul 2009, 12:34

Hi there,

my name is vincenzo spinelli and i live in rome.
i'm looking for a remote relative of mine (the brother of my
grandmother),
and the last known address is "36 sander street, Saint Johnsville, NY 13452" (in 1958).
his name is/was giovanni spinelli and this is the state of the art i know about him:

spinelli giovanni, born on january 17, 1894 in gioia del colle (south of italy) and son of vito lorenzo spinelli,
came to new york on september 30, 1913 (according to the ellis island registers).
he was married with felicetta spinelli (we do not know her surname before marriage)
and had a daughter mary/maria spinelli in (about) 1932.
felicetta, born on may 1897, died on december 1934 (i have a photo of her tomb).
on page http://www.stjohnsville.com/Cemetery5S.htm, i've found this record:
Spinelli, Felesceta; Burial Date-12-11-34; Birth and Death Year-1897-1934; Section-15; Lot #-YK.

he married again with teresa (her surname is unknown), but she died on may 8th 1958 (known from a letter of his).
there is no records about her on the site (the burial date is after 1950)

i hope that these informations are enough to find him or his relatives (daughter or grandsons...).

Thanks,

vincenzo spinelli.

Hello Vincenzo!

Here's a possible obituary for Giovanni

from the newspaper:
Amsterdam Recorder, Friday, 23 June, 1972

ST. JOHNSVILLE
John Spinelli. 78, formerly of 9 Sanders St., St. Johnsville, died June 15 at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Gabriel (Mary) Iacobucci. Scituate, Mass.

Spinelli was born in Bari, Italy, and was educated there before coming to the United States and the New York metropolitan area at the age of 19.

He was employed by the New York Central Railroad for 34 years, and was a member of the Railroad Maintenance of Way union.

He retired in 1958.

Spinelli resided in St. Johnsville 40 years, and had been with his daughter for four years.

He is survived by his daughter and four grandchildren.

The funeral was in St. Mary of Nativity Church at Scituate Center.

Ciao Vincenzo,
il tuo Giovanni deve essersi sposato dopo il 1920, vedi il censimento del 1920:

era un abbordante presso la famiglia Pezzi..
e se non vado errata nel 1930 era ancora single, perchè non è menzionata la moglie, lui è ancora single, anche se si fa chiamare James; il cognome errato è solo un errore di trascrizione di chi ha copiato i censimenti e li ha messi on line... è un errore normale anche per l'anno di nascita:

I believe that under Jacobucci spelling we can find Gabriel and Mary...

I found a address of 1993:
Name: Gabriel A Jacobucci
Birth Date: Oct 1929
Address: 666 Chief Justice Cushing WY, Scituate, Massachusetts 02066-0701 (1993)
and ditto until 2002...
