Tassone family

Postby drbdrdeb » 30 Aug 2011, 16:31

I am looking for any information on the descendants of Giovanni Tassone (Maybe Tassione) and his wife Camille. He died in Hartford, Ct in 1912. They had three children. They were from around Serra San Bruno, Calabria and came to the US just after 1900. I do not know if Giovanni and Camille were married before or after they came to the US. They had originally settled in Providence, R.I. but moved to Hartford around 1909. I cannot find Giovanni on any ship manifest. Any help would be appreciated.

Also, approximate birth years for Giovanni, Camille, and the children?

Some manifests transcribed as "Cassone" are almost certainly actually "Tassone" - these two, for example:

New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Giovanni Cassone
Name: Giovanni Cassone
Arrival Date: 16 May 1900
Birth Year: abt 1878
Age: 22
Gender: Male
Ethnicity/Race­/Nationality: Italian
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy
Port of Arrival: New York, New York
Ship Name: Victoria

This guy was from Nardodipace, about 13 miles from Serra San Bruno, final destination NY.


New York Passenger Lists, 1820-1957

Arrival Date: 5 Apr 1900
Birth Year: abt 1879

This second one came from Caulonia which is about 25 miles from Serra San Bruno. He reports his final destination was Montreal, Canada, however.

There looks to be two Raffaele Gentiles in Providence. One born in 1883 and the other in 1885. The one we are looking for is probable the younger one who married in 1902. It makes sense that she came over as a child, since her English was very good. Also, I know that the couple lost a child some years before Giovanni died because there is a story of his being inconsolable. It therefore makes sense that the Camille that I am looking for is really Raffaele Gentile. Giovanni was wanted for attempted murder in Providence. Are criminal records kept somewhere or disposed of after so long? I know that records in Hartford don't exist anymore.

I will have to look up the children's names in my files and get back to you.

Thank you for all your work. I must not be good at looking up things. Ancestry.com did not give me anything like what you have given!

I believe that was only 1 Raffaela Gentile in Providence; the birth year is mispelled, maybe right 1883; the arrival of Raffaela Gentile with Nicolo brother coming from Acri town(Cosenza province, Calabria region, IT), final destination Providence RI

Found an alternative spelling of the last name, as reported in the newspaper of Giovanni's death: Tossinni. The children's names were: Frank (dob 1907), Bruno (dob 1908 or 9) and Teresa (dob 1910).

Thank you so much for your work. I wondered how the children did after their parents were shot. Apparently at least one did not get farmed out and had his name changed.
