Please help me find records on this person?

Postby jamiecapaldi » 18 Oct 2010, 08:38

I am looking for the connection which Benedetto Torrice has with Capaldi.

I have found a travel manifest and found the following information:
Benedetto was born in Cassino, Italy 1890. His Father was Agostino Torrice. Benedetto moved to Detroit in 1912. He married someone called Michelangela.
His cousin are: Domenico Minchella, Giuseppe Capaldo and Alessandro Capaldi.

I would like to find out the relation of his which connects him to Capaldi.

Thanks Jamie

You remember that the Michelangela (b. 18 May 1889) surname was Caravaggio;

-Benedetto had a brother that emigrated also in Detroit, MI the first time in 23 Oct 1920: Emilio Torrice ( b. 14 Feb 1897, Cassino, IT; married at Minghetta Rosa, resident in S. Antonino hamlet of Cassino) left the mother Giustina VALENTINI( Valentini Valente) in Cassino and joining at brother Benedetto in Detroit, MI; Benedetto was born in Cassino, but in Sant'Antonino hamlet and I believe that also the

I found that a Carmina MANNA b. 9 Dec 1907 also in Cassino, with children, joining in 1936 at husband Emilio Torrice, so most probably the first wife died and Emilio remarried.
It is hard to say the relationship with the Capaldis... on line that is all that I found,

so the relationship between Benedetto Torrice and Giuseppe Capaldi was because the Benedetto Torrice mother was Giustina Valentini- Giustina mother maiden name: Valente; so Rosa Valente was maybe a cousin of Giustina Valentini and benedetto Torrice and Giuseppe Capaldi most probably was second cousins... just a suggestion...
