Looking for information on Pietro Donati

Postby wargofive » 25 Mar 2010, 11:35

My great grandfather was Pietro Donati, he lived in the Bronx, NY. He died 6/27/43 at the age of 76. Iknow he was a church painter and artist. He made statues for the churches as well. Can anyone give me information on what town in Italy he may have come from?? Thank you

Manifest for Pietro and wife Virginia
SS La Bretagne arriving NY 29 Sept 1889
Pietro, 24, mason, from Italy
Virginia, 25, from Italy

Unfortunately the earlier manifests give little information.

I believe that the surname of Pietro's father in law( so father of Virginia) was GINORI... changed in Jenory
