Pignatiello/dedda

Postby capeto2 » 01 Jul 2010, 23:24

I was wondering if anyone can help me find the connection between Lucia Pignatiello (b. 1890) and Antonio Dedda. According to the Ellis Island manifest she was coming to Chicago to meet with her Uncle Antonio Deddo and his wife. But I can't figure out what were the names of her parents. They are all from Orsara Di Puglia. Any help would be great. Thanks in advance!

On the 1901 manifest for Fedele Cappetta, he was going to an uncle named Carlo. Well this Antonio Dedda had a brother named Carlo, according to his one manifest. You need to try to find these people on their passenger lists and look at the information provided, as that may give you a clue as to how they are all connected.

On the 1912 passenger list for Lucia Pignatiello dated Oct 18, 1912, The Taormina, (her named looks like it was crossed out) but the destination was to an Uncle Ant. Dedda at 5002 Dearborn St. Her parents in her native Italian town were named Pignatiello. So that was her father's surname too. Their first names are not given.

She is on the Mendoza on Nov 14, 1912 and again her destination was to uncle Antonio Dedda and his wife (not named) at the same address as above. Again it mentions her parents but no first names for either of them.
