Orlando

Postby fffresco » 23 Jun 2011, 03:41

Looking for any info on the name Orlando. My great-grandmother was born in Castropignano, Campobasso on March 16, 1883. Her first name was Felicia (Felicella). I also believe her husband, Luigi Orlando (same last name) came from the same town. I know they didn't marry until the came to the USA. Her mother's maiden name was either
Molinari or Molinaro and her first name was Carmella. Any info would be greatly appreciated.

I believe that Felicella's family (parents and siblings) were living next door to her and her husband, if you look at the 1900 census manifest:

https://www.familysearch.org/search/ima ... 0420_00602

you'll see this family living on the number 60 of Monroe street (Luigi and Felicia were living on 63):

1900 United States Federal Census
about Rosario Urlano
Name: Rosario Urlano
Home in 1900: Newark Ward 5, Essex, New Jersey
[Newark, Essex, New Jersey]
Age: 44
Birth Date: Oct 1855
Birthplace: Italy
Race: White
Gender: Male
Immigration Year: 1888
Relationship to head-of-house: Head
Father's Birthplace: Italy
Mother's Birthplace: Italy
Spouse's Name: Carmela Urlano
Marriage year: 1881
Marital Status: Married
Years married: 19
Occupation: View on Image
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members: Name Age
Rosario Urlano 44 head, born in Italy, immigr. year 1888
Carmela Urlano 42 wife, born in Italy, immigr. year 1893
Samuel Urlano 17 son, born in Italy, immigr. year 1893
Joseph Urlano 4 son, born in NJ
Philamina Urlano 2 daughter, born in NJ
Nicolina Urlano 11/12 daugher, born in NJ
Pusquallo Pinote 50 boarder
Pedro Maureto 40 boarder
Vinnanzo Luchiani 25 boarder
Dominico Sardella 30 boarder
Dominic Gabricona 20 boarder

I believe this may have been the 1893 arrival manifest for Carmela Molinaro (travelling under her maiden name, considering that here in Italy women keep their maiden name for all their lifes even if married) and her children Felice age 10 male (possibly Felicia, female) and Sabato Antonio, age 9 male (Sam on the 1900 census):
