I don't have any records. My cousin and I had a conversation about her. The info I posted is all she told me along with she can't find where she came into the country. We know she was here. My cousin is the person working on my grandmothers side of the family.

Rose is my great grandmother on my grandmothers side Jennie is my grandmother. Jennie and her sides name is Carrano. Maybe a mispelling in the records?

No doubt a misspelling, 'N' is often mistranscribed as 'R' and 'U'
---

It's possible that Rosa arrived alone or with her mother
If she travelled with her mother it may have been as 'daughter' under her mother's maiden name

Rosa's father Michele & both brothers headed to Jersey City (Brooklyn lined out)father Michele is a widower(*), not his first trip
* on the 1910 census Michele has only been married once for 35 yrs (abt 1875)

1897 manifest

So if Micele came over as a widower and married Marie (Mary) Buonomo
Est. d/o/b 1858
Est. d/o/m 1875
And Rosa is their daughter and not his from a previous marriage she could have been born here? Am I thinking this thru correctly? These things are pretty new to me.

That's possible,
or
also possible, the 1897 manifest was incorrect - he wasn't a widower

Rosa being on the 1901 manifest with her mother probably means she was born in Sassano

Probably the only way to be sure is to write for a few records from Sassano
Perhaps Rosa's birth and Michele & Maria's marriage?

So then he wasn't a widower when he came over. And Rosa and My great great grandmother came over later together in the 1901 manifest?

My cousin says According to the 1910 census Rose and Frank Carrano immigrated to america 1891 and Michael and Mary Femminelli immigrated to America in 1889. So this could have been them coming back from a trip to Italy but it is not when they first came to America.
