I found that too.
I do not know her fathers name, I am trying to get a copy of the birth certificate because the dates match, I am hoping that maybe it will say his name on it - I am also searching old Obituaries from that area . I am hoping to talk to her adopted son to see if he knows anything.
Thanks

Hi Edie :-)

On the above Census, Concetta lists her date of immigration as 1901 (we'll take that as an approximation)
Her oldest child, Elizabeth is 15/16 on the 1920 census, so probably born around 1904/5.

I've been trying to find a 1910 Census for the family, hoping that the father's name would be there. I'll keep looking.

Also - you might try getting a copy of one of the other children's birth certificates - all were born in Pennsylvania.

OR a possible military record for Fred - the above census states he is in the US Navy.

Another place to look would be the Social Security Application. If you can get the SS# for any of the children - you can request a copy of the SS application (SS-5) that was filled out. It will list the names of the parents and their place of birth.
To request online...

I found a manifest from 1901 (same date that Concetta states on the 1920 Census for immigration)...

It may be a LONGSHOT....

I was told by someone that they lived in Bloomfield Pittsburgh Pa and that they had a cabinet shop on Lorrigan St call Damico Cabinets, I am still hoping that one of her family members can tell me something. Thanks for helping!!!
