Unfortunately i do not have any more information on Maria Auriemma, but i can tell you that Maria and Salvatore had 3 children per Ellis Island records. Their names are
Laura Ognibene b: abt. 1907 in Vallelunga Pratameno, Caltanissetta, Sicilia, Italy Edith Ognibene b: abt. 1911 in Vallelunga Pratameno, Caltanissetta, Sicilia, Italy Rosario Ognibene b: abt. 1913 in Vallelunga Pratameno, Caltanissetta, Sicilia, Italy
Rosario might be Rosaria. the 1930 New York census lists Rosaria (female)
I loooked at the ship manifest it says that Maria Auriemma father was Vincenzo Auriemma and he was from Gragnano Napoli region Campania Italy address via s.g. Maggiore,25 so maybe Maria was born there and italians usually get married in the brides hometown I looked through the records for Vallelunga Pratameno, Caltanissetta and no records of Maria or the kids for those dates.Correction on Loretta Bonasera single age 17 daughter of Michelle Bonasera and Rosa Sinatra. Rosario Ognibene single age 18 son of Salvatore Ognibene and Loretta Gervasi all living in Vallelunga
HI My name is Karen Ognibene. My grandfathers name was Rosario Ognibene and he had a sister named Laura. I was wondering if this is the same Ognibene family you are looking for. They lived in Brooklyn NY and they also had a brother named Vinny. My fathers name is Michael and I know he was named after his grandfather.. Please let me know because I can help fill in some missing information.
Sorry for the late responds, but I was in the midst of closing on a house and moving. This is the first time in 4 months that I get a chance to work on the family tree again.
Was you great grandfather's name Salvatore Ognibene and his wife Maria Auriemma? If so, we are talking about the same family (look at my first post above for more family info), even if not I am sure we are talking about the same family, because my Ognibene family is from Brooklyn and so far it is the only Ognibene family That I could find in that area. There is another one in the Boston area but so far I don't have a connection between the two families.
Hi It is Karen Ognibene I am a descendent of Michele(Michael) and Anna Russo. They were my great grandparents. They had 3 children Rosario S Ognibene ( I believe his middle name was Salvatore) Laura Ognibene and Vincent Ognibene. Rosario was my grandfather he married Rosa (Napoli) and they had 2 children Michael(my dad) and Anne. Laura had married Guy( not sure of last name) and had Guy jr, Claudia and Adrian. Vincent had no biological children. If you want any more info let me know. I see you live in florida. I do too!! My dad grew up in brooklyn Dyker Heights 79th and 13 ave.
