Capozziello surname

Postby VinceCap » 21 Apr 2011, 04:03

Looking for information about my great grandfather, Antonio Capozziello, from Faeto, Foggia, Puglia, Italy. He was born about 1858. He married Maria Grazia Benedetto about 1884. According to his death certificate, his father's name was Vincenzo Capozziello and his mother's name was Catherine Pastolla. I've been unable to locate immigration information. The 1910 Federal Census shows he immigrated in 1886 but the 1920 census shows he immigrated in 1894.

Have you located a 1900 Census for Antonio?

T.


Thanks for the information. At the time of the 1910 Census there were two Antonio Capozziellos living in Bridgeport, Connecticut. One was my great grandfather; the other I always assumed was related though I haven't yet determined the relationship. I have not been able to locate Antonio in the 1900 Census. I know he was living in Fairfiled, Connecticut as early as 1904 because his son, my grandfather, was born there on January 15, 1904.

Thanks very much for all the information. You've been very helpful. My father, now 81, never knew his grandfather but grew up believing that his name was Lorenzo. This always confused me because all the documentation I've found about my great grandfather shows his name to be Antonio. The information you provided may explain this.

Regarding documentation of Antonio's birth, how best to pursue obtaining a copy?

Thanks again. With your help pointing me in the right direction I was able to locate a birth record for my great grandmother, Maria Grazia Benedetto at familysearch.org. I also located a marriage record for her parents, Leonardo Bendedetto and Caterina Montanaro. Unfortunately the marriage record does not provide the names of Leonardo's and Caterina's parents.
