D'Addabbo / Favia(Favio) Bari > Chicago, IL

Postby todson » 15 Jan 2010, 23:32


Looking for more information on Michele D'Addabbo b. 1873, Carbonara,
Bari, Italy and his son, Nunzio D'Addabbo, b. 1899, Carbonara, Bari,
Italy. Michele and Nunzio traveled to Chicago IL, from Bari in 1910 and
1913. On both occasions their final destination [according to ship
manifest] was a relation, Vincenzo Favia(Favio) on West Baylor Street,
Chicago, IL. Other individuals on the manifest are also making their
way to W. Baylor Street. If anyone has additional information on any of
these individuals or have more information on W. Baylor Street, I would
appreciate a response. Thank you for your attention to my request.

Very kind regards,

Tod Davis

They were usually fellow townsmen who would accomodate newcomers until they found their way to something permanent or until a relative could be reached to come and collect the "boarders". Newly arrived immigrants often rented out sleeping accomodations(mattress on the floor) to even newer immigrants. The price was I believe 25cents a night. =Peter=
