Polito Family in Newark

Postby fpolito » 17 Jan 2010, 17:43

I'm trying to determine when the Polito family arrived in Newark, New Jersey. My grandfather (Frank) owned a grocery store on Stone Street in the first ward.

In 1930 census the name of son is Patsy, so Pasquale in italian spell..
I searched abt this first name as probable first name of Frank Polito's father in Pennsylvania census of 1910:

Pasquaal Palito 31 ( Pasquale-imm. 1903-alien)
Ermilia Palito 31
Adelina Palito 4
Femisia Palito 2 ( Francesca/Frances)


Appearing not Frank... maybe he immigrated in 1910 after the census, who know? Seeming the correct family... However if that are the right records , Frank moved in Newark, NJ between 1910/1 and 1920

Hopefully this article is still active and you can read this. My great-grandmother was Anna Polito. If you do get this please post back to me at mattyboy4u@hotmail.com. That would be great! Thank you for your time.
