D'Amico (Bauso) and Freno (Villa Franca) families

Postby LL53 » 28 Feb 2011, 12:17

Good morning. I am new to this site and need some help on my "brick wall".

In summary I would like to find more Italian family data for Matteo D'Amico (born in Bauso)and his wife Giuseppa Freno (born in Villafranca).

Matteo D'Amico details:
Born March 14, 1873 in Bauso
Died March 6 1944 in Boston,MA
Occupation Barber
Immigration SS Cheribon, arrived Feb 27, 1893, New York
I have his WWI draft card and USA citizenship (Oct 5 1905) docs.
The only information on his father is the name Pietro D'Amico and his mother, Giuseppa.
I have several USA census docs.

He married Giuseppa Freno on Jul 30, 1896 in Boston, her details:
Born Abt 1877 in Villafranca
Died Sept 8, 1948 in Quincy, MA
To date I have not found her immigration or her citizenship details, the 1920 and 1930 USA census indicates "Na". The 1910 census indicates a 1896 immigration.
The only data on her father, Antonio and her mother, Francesca is their names.

Thank you.
