My name is kenneth chiocchi. I am searching information concerning my great grandfather and great grandmother.
Bother are from Avellino Italy.
His name is Pasquale Chiocchi
Her name is unknown.
He married this unknown women sometine in the year 1909-1911 I am guessing. He traveled to the united states with her and son generoso "Joeseph" chiocchi he was between the age of 4-6 months old when he arrived to the United States at ellis Island. Just a few months after their arrival my great grandmother unknown passed away. Pasquale took his son back to Avellino Italy and remarried to Lucia Marcario. He then brought the two back to the states in 1912.
The bad part is I do not know who my great grandmother is from Pasquales first marriage. I am in the hopes of solving this mistery and possibly finding other relatives in Italy.l
Paquale arrived first on Aug. 7, 1902, going to Paterson to meet his uncle, Carmine Chiocchi. He was single and listed at age 20. He was traveling with a brother or cousin, Vincenzo Chiocchi, age 19
There is another record for him for June 28, 1911. Listed as married at 29 years, traveled on the ship Princess Irene, out of Naples, living in Valle di Avellino. Best part is that it stated he left his wife, Assunta Rego, back in Avellino on his return.
The last record if his arrival on May 15, 1912 on the ship Berlin. He has his wife, Lucia Maccaciano age 24, and son Generoso, age 2 with him. He left his mother, Maddelena Marotta back in Avellino.
