Scotto D'Abusco Family of Naples

Postby catscotto0803 » 27 Mar 2011, 17:58

My grandfather Raffaele Scotto D'Abusco was born around 1988 in Naples. He came to the United States on August 10, 1926. I am wondering if there are any relatives on this site.

Thank you

Catherine,

the site Familysearch.org has online the civil registration for the town of Monte Di Procida...
I believe this could be Raffaele Scotto D'Abbusco birth act as I noticed that on the 1913 arrival manifest he stated his father's name was Daniele:

Birth act number 163 year 1887 - Monte di Procida

Scotto D'Abbusco Raffaele was born on 20 december 1887 , he was son of Daniele Scotto D'Abbusco age 31 and of Teresa Vicidomini.

Marriage annotation:
Raffaele Scotto D'Abbusco married Rosa Scotto Di Marzo on 14 march 1921 in Monte di Procida

Death annotation:
Raffaele scotto died in Brooklyn (USA) on 21 march 1936

link to the act image:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/ima ... 3699_00058

the databases are many, you can check by yourself and find for example Raffaele Parent's marriage act of Raffaele's siblings birth acts...
Enjoy the research!

Laura:
Thank you for that info. It is my understanding that my grandfather came to the U.S. on August 10, 1926. I have been told he died in 1963. I'll have to dig further.

Catherine,

Is this is the 1926 arrival manifest you're talking about?:

from the site Ancestry.com:

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957
about Raffaele Scotto D'Abusco
Name: Raffaele Scotto D'Abusco
Arrival Date: 10 Aug 1926
Birth Year: abt 1888
Birth Location: Italy
Birth Location Other: monts
Age: 38
Gender: Male
Ethnicity/Race­/Nationality: Italian (South) (Italian)
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Conte Rosso
Search Ship Database: Search the Conte Rosso in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database

image page 1:

image page 2:
http://postimage.org/image/2tq6bpztw/

He stated that he was married and he was leaving his wife Maria in Monte di Procida. He was before in the U.S. (from 1913 since 1920 in NY) and he stated also that he was joining his cousin Gennaro Schiano Lomorello living on 109 Nelson street Brooklyn

This is the 1913 arrival manifest that I believe it was the first arrival in the U.S of this Raffaele D'Abbusco:

June 19, 1913
Scotto D'Abbusco Raffaele, age 25, single, from Monte Di Procida to NYC (leaving in Monte Di Procida his father Daniele), occupation sailor, joining his cousin Ippolito Vincenzo in Brooklyn, Union street.

page 2:
http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0002

I checked the year 188 for the births and I found another Raffaele :

Birth act n. 129 year 1888
Scotto D'Abbusco Raffaele Antonio born on 23 october 1888, son of Giovanni Scotto D'Abbusco and Irene Vellezza?

link to the act's image:
https://www.familysearch.org/search/ima ... 3699_00110

Can you compare the birth dates?

Ok, I found him...

Social Security Death Index
about Ralph Scotto
Name: Ralph Scotto
SSN:
Last Residence: New York
Born: 23 Oct 1888
Died: Jun 1963
State (Year) SSN issued: New York (Before 1951)

So the correct one is the last I found:

But, then the 1926 arrival manifest it's not him...?

Laura: Yes that is him. He was born on 10/23/88 and died in June 1963. He could not have been the one on the 1926 manifest because my dad (born in 1922) and his siblings were born in the U.S. That was my mistake. My dad remembers his birthday was October 23 (because his is October 22) but couldn't remember the year. After all, my dad is 88!!

Thank you and Marty for all your help. I am so fortunate to have found this website and the two of you.

Best regards,
Catherine (named after my paternal grandmother)
