Diplomat named Pasquale Corti

Postby Helper » 19 Jun 2010, 21:28

Hello. I am new to this website and I am doing research for a friend on their family tree. His great grandfather was evidently a diplomat who met Christina (or Josephine) Hunter in Austria / Germany about 1902. He fathered two sons before she immigrated to the United States in about 1906. I am trying to find information about him and his family. All help would be appreciated.

Welcome to the Forum!
Just a few questions
Is this the correct 1910 census?
Was Hunter her maiden name?
Do you have any other US records?
Thank you, Valarie

Yes the 1910 census was the right one for her in Colorado with the boarder. It shows that either her birthplace was either Austria or Australia but her parents came from Germany. I did find just now that she immigrated on the Prinzess Irene in 1905 and show her on the list of people. Right below her now I found a Corti, Gino (misread as Gius) who was 1 year. So it looks like originally her first sone had been given the father's last name. I haven't been able to find out anymore or records on her yet though. Thanks for your help!

Thanks. I wish I could find the birth certificate for Gino and more info on the father to track down. When she came to the US then Christina put his name as Hunter not Corti and claimed to be widowed.

I suppose this is not related, but from this article concerning events in 1890: http://www.americanheritage.com/article ... 4_65.shtml

[quote]
Pasquale Corte, the Italian consul in New Orleans, had also read the Vigilance Committee’s call to action that morning in the papers. To Corte this threat was a direct summons to duty. At least three of the men accused of the crime were still Italian citizens and entitled to the Italian government’s protection.

When Corte learned that a crowd was indeed gathering at Clay Statue, he raced his carriage to City Hall to find Mayor Shakspeare. There he met Sheriff Villère and the attorney general, Mr. Rogers, who told the consul that they too were looking for the mayor. But in Corte’s judgment, “They appeared to me to be very calm and to be anticipating what was about to happen.â€

I found one of those but not the others. I wonder when Pasquale died and where his daughters are today.
