Looking for info on Roppolo

Postby bojickwoman » 04 Jan 2011, 21:11

Hi everyone, I'm new here and came across this forum doing my own geneology research. Seems like I hit a wall and wanted to see if anyone has any additional information to go with the following info below for my great-great grandmother. This is what I found so far, but the trail ends with her. I don't know who her parents were or who fathered her illegitimate daughter. I'd like to know more about this Bosco person. The family is from Perosa Argentina, Italy. Any info is greatly appreciated!

Marta Roppolo
Born: Oct 1881 (supposedly in FRANCE)
Arrived US 1st time: May 1905, age 23 thru Ellis Island (immigrated to Chicago, IL)
Left US and went back to Italy for a number of years. No record on when she came back. Family oral history says 1925.
Has three brothers: Dominic (don't know birth info), Martino (don't know birth info) and Savino (Savino born in 1900 in Perosa, went AWOL in WW1).
Was a servant for a wealthy Ambassador named Bosco (Who is Bosco? I know he was already married-scandalous!)
Had an illegitimate child with Bosco (Jeanette Roppolo)

Here's a possibility for Baldassarre Bosco

Baldassarre Bosco
- 23, abt 1882
- single
- last residence Villanova
- destination Streator, Illinois (LaSalle County)
- joining friend Stefano Bajetto

This may be Baldassarre Bosco's brother Francesco, also from Villanova
In Oct 1907 he's joining his brother in St Louis MO
Leaving his father Francesco in Villanova d'Asti(?)
