LOKING FOR MY GREAT GRANDFATHER Alessandro Cinque

Postby aching » 09 Mar 2011, 17:12

My great grandfather lived in Utica, NY. He emmigrated from SICIGNANO, Italy around 1890 I believe. He may have had a brother Gabriel. ANy help would be wonderful.

Hello and welcome! :-)

From the 1896 Utica Directory...

There is a Gabriel Cinque, laborer, listed at 99 Water St.

There are also listed under "Cinque" : Antonio, Luigi, Zirardi - all on Water St. But no listing for Alessandro...

Can you provide any other information about Alessandro? Approx. birth date, date of death, names of children?

Yes I believe he was born around 1865, he married Donato (Dorathy) Grippe. they had numerous children, Louis B1898, Peter B1895, Floyd, Mary, Lucile. His Father was Luigi Cinque. At some point in the time the name was changed to Ching. That is the name on his grave stone in Calvary Cemetery in Utica, NY. He may have arrived through Castle Garden in 1890 on the Burgundia which departed from Marseils/Naples Theyowned property on St Joseph St
Thank you so much

I save the document to my computer, then go to www.imageshack.com and post it. After posting to the image-sharing site, I copy and paste the "direct link" code here on the forum. That allows me to delete the file from my computer...

Yes, but I think you can also do the uploading without an account... :-)
