Marty
Thanks so much for the info. Yes, it is the correct family FACCA.
The person listed as "Parena Pemotacchi" is Savina Simontacchi, sister of Onesta (nee Simontacci) Facca.

abt this other:
1. b. 28 DEC 1898 in Fontana Freda, Italy; mother Regina Corazza, father Vicenzo Facca; departed La Havre 1920, arriving in Quebec on 31 Oct 1920 on the Scotian. Married Onesta Simontacchi in 1926


Canadian Passenger Lists, 1865-1935
about Guiseppe Facca
Name: Guiseppe Facca
Gender: Male
Age: 23
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1897
Date of Arrival: on
Vessel: Scotian
Search Ship Database: View the 'Scotian' in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database
Port of Arrival: Quebec
Port of Departure: London, England and Le Havre, France
Roll: T-14711
joining at cousin Francesco Toffoli in 633 Queen st Sault St Marie, Ontario
http://img585.imageshack.us/i/giuseppefacca19201.jpg/

well I know not if is the Giuseppe Facca married at Onesta Simontacchi,

because abt the same Giuseppe Facca arrived on 31 Oct 1920, Scotian Vessel, it are also this ship's manifest:
Canada, Ocean Arrivals (Form 30A), 1919-1924 about Giuseppe Facca
Name: Giuseppe Facca
Gender: Male
Estimated Birth Year: abt 1897
Birth Place: Hoole-Braxle ( S. Paulo- Brazil)
Age: 23
Date of Arrival: Nov 1920
Port of Arrival: Quebec
Ship Name: Scotian

http://img39.imageshack.us/i/giuseppefacca1920.jpg/
italian, catholic, born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, son of Agostino Facca resident in Fiume Veneto (Udine province) and joining at Francesco Toffoli cousin 633 Queen st Sault St Marie Ontario

on the Giuseppe Facca and Onesta Simontacchi genealogic tree by ancestry.com:

Guiseppe Di Venchensa Facca ( giuseppe Facca son of Vincenzo Facca and Regina Corazza):

Birth 22 DEC 1898 in Fontan Fredda, Italy
Death 03 AUG 1938 in San Mateo, California, USA
the arrival is 31 Oct 1920, Scotian Vessel, but I believe that is not right this arrival,
because by other ship's manifest, abt same person, we know that he was born in Sao Paulo, Brazil, and the father was Agostino in Fiume Veneto, IT ( most probably the family moved in Brazil, where this Giuseppe Facca was born, and after back in Italy), and in this trip was also Vittoria Facca... I think that most probably was a cousin of Giuseppe Facca son of Agostino, and she was born also in Brazil and daughter of Giovanni Facca resident ( in 1925) in Fiume Veneto...
It are several ship's manifest abt Giuseppe Facca abt born between 1897-1900 but it is hard to say the right ship's manifest...

and I cannot find the right arrival in 1920/1 abt Giuseppe Facca born in Fontanafredda....

Which is correct

They are 2 Giuseppe Facca … the Giuseppe Facca, mother Chiara Piva was no born on 22 DEC 1898 but on 10 apr 1898…

Birth Date: 10 Apr 1898

But, for coincidence, on the same ship, the San Rossore, in same arrival 25 may 1921, travelling 2 Giuseppe Facca, born abt in 1898, and for the conicidence was confusion…
So in same travel 2 Giuseppe Facca, one born in San Vidotto ( mother= Chiara Piva) and one born in Fontanafredda ( father= Vincenzo)


1. Giuseppe Facca, born in San Vidotto ( mother= Chiara Piva)
