searching for death certifiate of Cosmo Monterosso

Postby jo123 » 10 Apr 2010, 13:50

Hi there,

I had a look at a couple of death certificates on the following website www.wvculture.org/vrr/...elect.aspx
which was posted on another post. I thought I might just have a look through. I am searching for a death certificate for my great grandfather Cosmo Monterosso who we believed died in about 1928. He was a miner in Pittsburgh but we are not sure where he died or if he really died then. Some relatives say he died of pneumonia others say a mining accident. There is a listing for a Carl Montrosse (miner) of Italian origin who died in Dec 1927. He was 45 years old making him born in 1882. My grandfathers birth year was between 1878 and 1882. I looked for a ship manifest for a Carl Montrosse but there was none.
Here is a image of the certificate:

I know it has the name of a spouse as Annie Clisso, and my Great Grandfathers wife was Grazia Condina, but I'm sure many Italians took up with new wives in America to start a new life.


I know its an absolute long shot. Am I totally crazy looking for a needle in haystack like this.

There is a Carlo Monterosso, born about 1878, who arrived April 21, 1905 aboard the Lombardia, line 15, going to a cousin in Avery, Ohio. He was from Reggio Calabria.

You can view this manifest from the website www.stevemorse.org

go to third option down which is gold form and you can see it and other variations of the spelling of the surname by doing a sound search

Thanks for your reply.

I have already found all of the ship manifests for Cosmo Monterosso. And I have found a ship manifest for a Carmello Monterosso on ellisisland.org also, so no I don't think these are Cosmo Monterosso.

Like I said it was a long shot. Just don't know how I can find a death certificate now because I don't know where in the USA he died.

Thanks anyway

There is another manifest from 1921 that lists his wife as Grazia Codino(a).

Hi Tessa,
Thankyou, yes I do have the 1925 manifest. Sorry I should have mentioned my prevoius post (thanks pink) and that I think I have found all of his manifests (1907, 1909, 1921 and 1925).

But any other leads would be greatly appreciated.

If you go to this Australian government web site, http://recordsearch.naa.gov.au/scripts/ ... Screen.asp , and search only the name "monterosso" then weed through the results, you will find not only Saverio's entrance into Australia, but also several entrance/exits by Cosimo Monterosso and at least two by a Grazia Monterosso.

This leads me to the possibilty that Cosimo and/or Grazia visited their son in Australia? If so, the documentation (which you should be able to request copies of) may provide important details.

At the very least, Saveria's documents will show his last address, etc, before arriving in Australia.

PS: "Cosmo" is not an Italian given name; "Cosimo" is however.

Hi Johnny,
Yes I have been to the Australian National Archive and am waiting on some files on Saverio. A couple of the Cosimo's and Grazia's are Saverio's children.

When I went to view what files they had on my Grandparents, they only had a file card with addresses and job etc. That was when I first started researching so now I am more familiar with microfilms etc, I am sure I can request ship manifest etc, Thanks Peter.

We have always wondered about the name Cosmo. Thats what started this whole search in the first place. When my Grandfather Cosmo (one of Cosmo Monterosso's descendants) died last year, we were searching through the Aust National Archive to see what name he entered Australia as, because his name was always pronounced Cosimo but he spelt it Cosmo.
