Do you know Felice Augileri, Elizabeth NJ

Postby Jim2814 » 19 Dec 2009, 04:46

My Grandfather, Vincenzo Lentini, came to the US from Marsala in 1914. The ships manifest indicated that he was headed to his cousin Felice Augileri in Elizabeth, NJ.

Until I found this information, nobody in my family has ever heard of anyone named Augileri. I also discovered that my Grandfather's mother's maiden name was also Augileri. I am trying to find any information about Feilce Augileri but have found nothing proving that she existed.

If you have any information I would appreciate hearing from you.

Thank you

Hi Jim and welcome to the Forum! :D

I believe the correct last name was Angileri because Augilieri doesn't exist...
In fact, this is the 1913 arrival manifest for Felice Angileri, from Marsala to Newark to join his brother in law Giuseppe (no lastname)
