Looking for Info on Abbate and Libasci (Libassi)

Postby mattnini » 11 Apr 2011, 19:37

I am looking for information on the following people and I stuck. Any help would be much appreciated.

Saverio Abbate
Born 1873 in Italy
Came to US around 1895 (can't find immigration information)
Arrested in Pa in 1897 and released in 1903
Has daughter, Katherine, in 1905 in Scranton and then died sometime before 1910 census as his wife is listed as Widowed. Looking for birth, death details. Trying to find where he was born in Italy.

Marie Libasci (Saverio's Wife)
Born 1874 in Italy
Had a daughter, Mary, born around 1895, so either had her right after coming to US or came over with her. Assuming she was already married to Saverio when she came over, since she had Mary
Trying to locate immigration and birth information, what town she was born in.

Thanks - I saw that but am not sure if it is him. In his Probation record, it states taht he is a Stone Mason, so I am not sure.

I'll continue to look for a manifest, but I think the above is a good bet ...
Unfortunately, he arrived before 1897 and the early manifests have little information in them :(
Have you located the manifest for Maria? Or was she born in US?


Is this the Probation Record (Journal of the Senate - Pardon of Saverio Abbate) to which you refer?

I believe that tessa found the right arrival record; on the 1900 Saverio Abbate is 27 old, so maybe he was born abt in 1872...

Yes, that is his Pardon - I have a copy of the original record from the PA archives. After the birth of his daughter in 1905 in Scraton he kind of disapears. I can't find a death record or anything. I just requested a search of the PA death records from 1905 through 1910. Hopinig that will give me something.

I haven't been able to find any arrival information of his wife either. And can't find any information on his first daughter, Mary who was born in NYC in 1895-ish.
