Collini

Postby gloriusgirl » 28 Apr 2010, 15:36

Louis R. Collini, born about 1832 Trieste married Lena R. Schaeffer. I do not know where they were married. They had at least one son Louis Alphonse Collini born 25 Aug 1874 Savannah, Chatham Co., Georgia, USA. I would very much like to find the Collini surname, and a possible ancestor, in Trieste, Italy.

I am so very impressed with the thoroughness of your work! Thank you so very much for your prompt reply. Thanks to you I can now see I may be on somewhat of the wrong track.

The 1900 U.S. Federal Census is definitely[b] the correct family. (I am doing the computer work for my sister-in-law: Margaret Elizabeth Collini Chain.) Her father was John Frederick Collini, born 26 Nov 1896 Savannah, Chatham, Georgia, USA. He married Ida Virginia Durham. They had five children: two boys and three girls, all born either Kentucky or Ohio, USA

Also correct are John Frederick Collini's parents Louis Alphonse Collini, born 25 Aug 1874 Savannah, Chatham, Georgia, USA, (no death date for Louis) and Margaret Helen "Maggie" Lightbody born 12 Jun 1876, died 17 Jun 1971 Cincinnati, Hamilton, Ohio, USA. They had five children: Charles, John Frederick, Louis Alphonse, Adolph, Paul E., Robert and Thomas P. Collini.

The next generation is more confusing but yet seems a possible fit because son Louis, age 7 (Louis Alphonse Collini?), was born Georgia. The 1880 Port Royal, Beaufort Co., South Carolaina, USA census lists L. R. Collini head age 48 hotel keeper born AUSTRIA, L. R. Collini wife age 31 born Germany, Alonzo M. Collini age 9 son born Georgia, Louis age 7 son born Georgia, Hedwig Collini age 3 son born Georgia, Ida Collini age 2 daughter born Georgia, and Adolphus Collini 3M son born South Carolina.

QUESTION: My Austria/Trieste, Italy history needs help. L. R. Collini above claims to have been born in AUSTRIA but his son says his father was born in ITALY. Is this possible?

FINAL QUESTION: Could Ludwig R. Collini who married Lizzie Schafer on 15 Dec 1870 at the Lutheran Church of the Ascencion, Savannah, Chatham Co., Georgia, USA, be the L. R. Collini on the 1880 census?

Yes because in that period Trieste was under the of the Austro-Hungarian empire, see this map:

and this:

FINAL QUESTION: Could Ludwig R. Collini who married Lizzie Schafer on 15 Dec 1870 at the Lutheran Church of the Ascencion, Savannah, Chatham Co., Georgia, USA, be the L. R. Collini on the 1880 census?


Yes I believe so....

I am so grateful to you for such quick efficient responses to my questions. Thank you so very much for your recent response. You are very good and you have helped me immensely in putting the Collini family together. Now if I could have such good luck finding ancestors in Italy!
