Searching for Giovanni Battista Loss

Postby siskojnash » 23 Sep 2010, 02:34

I am searching for Giovanni Battista Loss for a friend of mine. He arrived at Ellis Island on October 5, 1907. He had two brothers: Angelo and Gregorio Loss. They lived in Hartford, Arkansas and were coal miners. Giovanni left Hartford, went to another state and was never
heard from again. His brother thought he might have gone to Pennsylvania. Giovanni Loss was born in 1883.

Those look like the right ones. Is there any way of finding out what happened to Giovanni after he left Arkansas? My friend just told me that the Loss family came from the Trento, Italy area in Northern Italy. She also just confirmed that Battista Loss is the right person.

I just took a look at the link and didn't see any obvious possibilities. Was there a particular one there that you thought might be him? He was born in 1883, so he would have died already.

That's Gregory. He's part of my friend's family. The only one that she doesn't know about is Giovanni Battista Loss, called Battista Loss on the Ellis Island document. The english equivalent of the name Giovanni would be John, right? I wonder if he could have decided to use the name Battista.

Yes, the 1907 arrival is the correct one, according to my friend. She is just interested in finding out what happened to him after he leaves Arkansas. I don't know exactly when that happened. I wonder if she knows. Would it help to know exactly when he left Arkansas?

The more details the better.
When did he leave Arkansas?
Where else in America did Loss family live?
Other last names related to Loss?

My friend is one of Angelo Loss' daughters. She lives in Oregon. Her last sister recently passed away. I don't know where she lived.
