Caterina Parente

Postby lathompson » 08 Mar 2011, 00:42

I'm trying to find out more information on my great grandmother. I believe she died in Pescantina. This is based on stories I remember from my grandfather, Michael Torre telling me. I can find record of my grandfather and some of his siblings coming back to the US in 1924 from Pescantina. I think they went over with her when her mother was ill but this is just based on what I've been told. Her husband was Giovanni Torre and I know that they were married in Pescantina on 9/19/1903 before they came to the US. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanks.

Now if is the right family, you can explain abt Pescantina? Pescantina is in Verona province, Veneto region, IT; Bellosguardo is in Salerno province, Campania region, IT..
Or the above records are no abt your ancestors?

Oops.. too long on the computer. My grandparents Facciotti are from Pescantina. Sorry for the confusion. I should have taken a break before I posted Yes that is my family.

ah ok... well.. in 1921 Giovanni Torre came back in USA with children Felice and Lucia; in Bellosguardo next of kin was the daughter Concetta; Giovanni was already widowed:
First Name: Giovanni
Last Name: Torre
Ethnicity: Italy, Italian S.
Last Place of Residence: Bellosguardo, Italy
Date of Arrival: Jan 22, 1921
Age at Arrival: 43 Gender: M Marital Status: W
Ship of Travel: Italia
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy
Manifest Line Number: 0010


pag 1 http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0010
pag 2 http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0010
I believe that Caterina Parente died around or before of the 1920, because on the ship's manifest Giovanni declaring that already in USA from 1904 to 1912(?) and he was widowed in jan 1921 so Caterina surely died in Bellosguardo before of jan 1921...

Somehow I missed him coming back. The older kids came back but the younger ones stayed in Italy for few years (just like my grandfather said). Thanks so much.

I have the marriage info for Caterina Parente and Giovanni Torre. September 19, 1903 in Bellosguardo. I believe she was born around 1880. Looks like she died around 1920 and according to family stories in Bellosguardo. How can I write /find info on her birth... that would lead me to her parents names. Death was only of interest because of confirming stories (her mom had the flu or something and she went back to Italy to care for her and became sick and died in Italy). Thanks for any help.
