Raymond Borriello from Castellammare Di Stablia

Postby rk7kids » 18 Nov 2010, 00:44

My great grandfather, Raymond Borriello was put into an orphanage at an early age somewhere in the Naples/ Castellammare Di Stablia area. Im going to estimate his birth to have been around 1860. As an adult he married a Louise or Alouise Alfano in that same area and they had one son...my grandfather Gennaro in 1884. The story I get is that they split before Gennaro's 10th birthday and she left the country, going to either south america or the usa..no one knows for sure. Raymond and Gennaro came to the usa looking for her a few years later and settled in Brooklyn NY. She was never located. No one in my family has any idea who Raymonds parents were and why they put him in the orphanage or where Louise ended up. Gennaro has 2 sons still alive, my father and his brother but the above is all they could offer... thank you for any assistance you can render...I am Raymond also and e-mail is dyn_ray57@yahoo.com

Hi and welcome to the forum,

I don't know if you have this manifest, but I am posting it for reference.
Can you confirm this is your Raymond and Gennaro?

Date of arival was Oct.22, 1896 on the Karamania from Naples. That would put Gennaro's birth year at about 1885 and Raimondo's at 1861.

Unfortunately the manifest doesn't give a lot of info.
