about Nicholas Piscatelli
Name: Nicholas Piscatelli

Residence: Mid, Massachusetts
Race: White

the death:
Nicholas Piscatelli
birth: 3 August 1891

christening:
baptism:
death: April 1985 — Middlesex, Massachusetts

also, by search, I am positive that the surname was Piscitelli and not Piscatelli....
Mary, the daughter of James/Vincenzo, married at Gabriel William Ruggiero ...

abt the immigration I found a probable record abt Maria Vincenza Piscitelli with children: Rosina 11 old and Nicola 8 old ( in 1899) and joining at Vincenzo Piscitelli in Boston, MA..
but they arrived in oct 1899 and Dominick, the second son, was born in nov 1899 or 1900 so I know not if the imm. record is right.. maybe no..

http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0027

the last residence was Cervino ( Caserta province);
in effects in Cervino, in 1886 a PISCITELLI Vincenzo married at DE LUCIA Maria Vincenza...
so before of to continue, better if you can say if for you, the above records , seeming ok...
regards,
suanj

http://img826.imageshack.us/i/piscitelli.jpg/

the immigration year of wife and children matching with imm. record; so Dominick Piscatelli was born in 25 nov 1900 and not in 25 nov 1899 as the record on familysearch...

abt the birthplace...
seeming that the ship's manifest (posted above abt Maria Vincenza and children) is right... but just a my idea... also because it is the only probable ship's manifest.... if so the last residence was Cervino...


but I know not if really the Piscitellis coming from Cervino, however this is marriage act of Vincenzo Piscitelli and Maria Vincenza De Lucia:

Cervino ( Caserta province, IT) 25 jan 1886

groom: Vincenzo Piscitelli age 22 musician, born in Cervino, resident in Cervino son of Francesco and of late Angelamaria De Rosa

bride: Maria Vincenza De Lucia age 22 born in Cervino, resident in Cervino, daughter of Antonio and of Filomena Bove/Bova
http://img862.imageshack.us/i/marriage.jpg/

for bad luck it are no the birthacts for 1889 and 1891, so maybe finding Rosina and Nicola birthact we can be sure abt all... on WWI draft the Nicholas Piscatelli( Piscitelli birthplace) start with " Mar..." ; maybe means Santa Maria a Vico very close at Cervino.... who know?
