Casteldaccia - Cusimano-Drago Family

Postby ribst01 » 04 Jun 2010, 15:10

Hi - I'm looking for information on my Father's Mother's family. They were from Casteldaccia in Parlermo Sicily and I have many of the the names but hardly any dates or information of where they came from other than Casteldaccia.

It starts with: Giuseppe Cusimano who married Maria (unknown maiden name) Cusimano and they had a daughter Nunzia Cusimano. Nunzia married Gaetano Drago and they had 11 children that lived past childhood:
Girolama (never married)
Calogero (married Maria Cali)
Maria (married Vito Ribaudo)
Giuseppe (married Giovanna)
Basilia (married Giuseppe Montesanto)
Ignacio (married Rosa)
Gaetano (married Caterina)
Stefana (married Giuseppe Ribaudo - my grandparents)
Nunzia (twin) (married Salvatore Speciale)
Salvatore (twin) (married Maria)
Caterina (married Giuseppe Pinello)
If anyone has information that can fill in the blanks, please let me know. Also, if I can help you find information on your family, let me know.

Thanks! Stefana Muller (Ribaudo)

hi - I unfortunately don't know how to write in Italian but can read pretty well.

I'm looking to find out my Great Great Grandmother's (Maria "Cusimano") maiden name.

Thank you,
Stefana

Possible manifest for Giuseppe Cusimano...from Casteldaccia.

Arriving NY 1904 to go to brother Francesco in Illinois.

My grandmother (Stefana Drago/Ribaudo) was born in 1921. I don't have dates for anyone else though.

Tessa - I can't get to the Ellis Island site today for some reason. I'll check it out from home tonight and let you know. Thanks for this!

Hello again :-)

Looking at the "generations" here, I don't think the Giuseppe in the above manifest is the right age...
