Pepitone Family History

Postby ChipPepitone » 22 Nov 2010, 06:05

Searching for more information on the Pepitone Family. My Great Grandfather Raymond Pepitone ( or Raimondo Pipitone) born April 1846 His father was A Pepitone and mother M Fourgaty. Raymond Married Flora Evelina Barrios. He had 10 Children of which one was my Grandfather Percy James Pepitone. The only information I have that he existed is 10 children, his Marriage certificate and the 1900 census.

I would like to find information about his parents and siblings as well as a record of his death and his birth in Italy.

Hi Chip, welcome to the forum,

Birthrecords are kept at the comune level in Italy, so it is necesary to know place of birth

Can you give us a litle more info so we can better direct your search. Did Raimondo immigrate to the US? Approx. when? Where did he first settle?
Does the census you have give any clues as to his place of birth or year of immigration.

Hi, the maiden name of Raymond wife: Flora Evelina Barrios
it is spelled in some document: Bariairs

but I found this record:
Name: Raymond Pepitone
Marriage: 28 Aug 1875 - Lockport, Louisiana, USA (Marriage: 28 Aug 1875 in Holy Savior Catholic, Lockport, Louisiana, USA)
Parents: A Pepitone, M Fourgaty
Spouse: Floro Evelina Barrilleaux(b. 25 Nov 1857 in Lockport, Louisiana, USA)

Instead by this database:

Louisiana Marriages, 1718-1925
about Evelina Barrios Name: Evelina Barrios
Spouse: Raymond Pepitone
Marriage Date: 27 Aug 1875
Marriage Place: Lafourche



obviously, because Raymond was born in Italy, it is probable that also the maiden name of Raymond 's mother is misspelled, because sound no italian..
I searched and no luck, just I found some info abt the sons:

Albert Burns Pepiton b. 24 Dec 1875

Manuel Pepiton b. 13 Aug 1879 Maringouin, Iberville, La (?)-death: 07 Nov 1944 Calluport, , , Louisiana; spouse: Agnes Barren

Frank Pepiton b. 4 May 1883

Joe Pepiton b. 10 Jun 1884, spouse: Elode Pienet

Mitchel Pepiton b. 10 May 1890 New Roads, LA

Adam Pepiton b. 1 apr 1892 New Roads, LA

Percy Pepiton b. 27 Feb 1898 LA; death: Jun 1974 Maurepas, Livingston, Louisiana; spouse: Marguerite Ellington in Detroit, Wayne, Michigan, the 17 Jun 1925

and because I made a deep search and no immigration record abt Raymond (Raimondo in italian) I found only 1 record:

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Amiable Paptane
Name: Amiable Paptane ( really: Amabile PIPITONE)
Arrival Date: 12 Dec 1863
Birth Year: abt 1838
Age: 25
Gender: Male
Ethnicity/Race¬/Nationality: Italian
Place of Origin: Italy
Port of Departure: Liverpool, England and Queenstown, Ireland
Destination: United States of America
Port of Arrival: New York
Port Arrival State: New York
Port Arrival Country: United States
Ship Name: Virginia


and no more.. it could be possible that Raymond was no the italian first name and he changed the own first name in USA? In marriage certificate it is no mentioned Raymond birthtown ?? Seeming that it are a bit of confusion on Evelyn maiden name also...

suanj

My great grandfather was Raymond Pepitone (Raimondo or Remondo Pipitone)born April 1846 in Italy He came to the United States in 1864 and was naturalized September 24, 1872. He married Flor Evelina Barros Aug 27,1875 she was born September 1859 They lived in Louisana
Raymonds parents were A Pepitone and M Fourgaty. I believe that they were both born in Italy. Actually I think that they were all from Sicily.
Raymond & Evelina's 10 children were:
Marguritte
Albert Burns
Emmanuel
Francesco Raymondo
Joeseph
Pamela
Mitchel
Adam
Maria
James Percy

I am the grandson or James Percy

I would like to find out more information about Raymond's parents and siblings, as well as Raymond's birth (Italy) and death (USA) certificates and location of burial.

How do I go about obtaining an Italian Birth certificate when I dont know exactly where he was born, nor do I have an exact date of birth.

Also I am not sure of the port where Raymond entered the US

Through information taken from the 1900 census and Evelina's Marriage license dated June 7, 1911, Raymond's death occured between 1900 and 1911
Evelina married William T Burke in 1911 and was listed as widow of Raymond Pepitone

Also how would I find a list of Italian equavaliant names like Raymond - Raimondo, Francisco - Frank
