Where, When, How, did Angelo Biasi die?

Postby eastside2 » 04 May 2010, 18:15

Need help figuring out how my GGrandfather died. Angelo Biasi from Cartigliano, Italy born approximately 1879, married Guiseppina Bertoldo. Immigrated to U.S. in 1913 settled in Chicago. Two surviving children at the time of the 1920 Census. My Grandfather Reinaldo was born in 1918. Therefore GGrandfather Angelo must have died between late 1917 and 1920. Can't figure out what happened to him. Influenza, War, other? Please offer any suggestions as I cannot find U.S., Cook County, or Illinois death records on him.

You guys and gals are the best. I did not think of looking for a mispelling on the name. The Biagi listing must be him as the age at the time of death and the father's name fit. Not sure who the informant (Mario) was? Any thoughts on what newspaper or other source might reveal the cause of death? Thanks for all your help.

Never mind I see the death certificate show the cause of death as gangrene of the lung caused by taberculosis. Thanks.
