CALIFANO VELTRI GUARIGLIA

Anna Califano "was from Province of Compagna, Italy and likely Naples. She was a daughter of Michel or Michael or Mike Guariglia.who is found in the 1910 and 1920 census of New York, born about 1870 in Italy, and both of his parents were born in Italy as well. According to Ellis Island Immigration records, Michele Califano arrived in New York City on June 22, 1891, age 21, from Port of Naples on the ship, Alesia. According to the Petitions for Naturalization, filed in New York City County Court Records (# 8971 and #9219), Michele Califano filed for naturalization on February 1, 1900, age 29; which were recorded on March 3, 1900. His witness was Michele Terrenova, a shoemaker, who lived at 1669 8th Avenue, New York.

Michele Califano married about 1898 in New York to "Julia" or Juliette (Guliette) - last name not known. She was born about 1883 in Italy, was naturalized in 1898, and that both of her parents were also born in Italy. Michele Califano is found in the 1910 Census in Brooklyn, Ward 30, at 6507 14th Street. His occupation was shown as "junk shop," and he was listed as the owner. He is also found in the 1920 Census in Brooklyn Assembly District 9, and he is renting a house at 1225 60th Street. All of the children of Michael and Julia Califano, according to the census, were born in New York as follows: Peter b. 1901 (according to Brooklyn Birth Certificate #11813, Pietro Califano was born July 16, 1901); Joseph b. 1903; Angelina b. 1906; Anna b. 1908 (who married Anthony Guariglia - See GUARIGLIA family); Concetta or "Connie" b. 1910; Laura b. 1912; Alfonso b. 1915; and Josephine b. 1918.

Anna Califano was born on November 28, 1908 and married in 1928 in Brooklyn to Vitantonio or Vito Anthony Guariglia, son of Giovanni Guariglia (see GUARIGLIA family). The family of Anthony Guariglia is also found living in the 1930 Census in Brooklyn, New York (16th Ward), where they are renting at 1375 65th Street between 13th and 14th Avenues. Anna (Califano) Guariglia died during the month of August, 1956, and she was buried in Calvary Cemetery, Woodside, Queens County, New York which is managed by The Trustees of Saint Patrick Cathedral and is one of the largest and oldest cemeteries in the United States.

In the 1920 census, Anna's brother, Peter Califano, born in 1901, was shown as a laborer in a soap factory. Another brother, Joseph Califano, was shown as a house painter. The Califano family resided in Brooklyn, New York, either in the Bay Ridge section or the Bensonhurst section, both in the County of Kings." Michele Calfiano died in Brooklyn, New York. If a mass was said, it would have been at St. Rosalia on 63rd Street or Regina Pacis (peace) on 65th Street. Julia Califano separated from her husband Michael and moved to Waterbury, Connecticut. She died in Corona, New York at about the age of 65, on or around 1950. If a mass was said, it would have been held at St. Leo Roman Catholic Church," which is located at 104-05 49th Avenue, Corona, New York.

VELTRI - GUARIGLIA
Not much is really known at this point about the Veltri family. Lucrezia Luerzine Veltri, known as "Grazia" and "Grezia" Veltri in the census, was born about 1883 in Italy. It is presumed that she was born in Craco, as was her husband, Giovanni Guariglia. Lucrezia immigrated in 1893-1894 to New York, and both of her parents were born in Italy. She was married about 1896 in New York (likely Brooklyn) according to the census. She married Giovanni Guariglia (see GUARIGLIA Family). Lucrezia Luerzine Veltri was a daughter of Maria Veltri, as Maria was living with the Giovanni Guariglia family in the 1910 Census at 88 Baxter Street in Manhattan, New York. Maria Velti is listed as his "mother-in-law," and she is also listed as a widow. The census relates that Maria Veltri had been born about 1855 in Italy, and that she immigrated between 1890 and 1893.

In the 1900 Census of Manhattan, New York, there is a George Veltri living there. According to the census, he was 35 years of age - thus born in February 1865, and he had immigrated to New York between 1880-1882. In checking immigration records (#125082), there is a Giovanni Veltri, who arrived in New York on November 17, 1883, age 33. His occupation is listed as a plough maker, who arrived from Naples on the ship, Britannia. Was he a close relative of George Velti? Living with George Velti in the 1900 Census of Manhattan is wife, Maria H., age 35, thus born about 1865 in Italy. The census also states that George Velti had been married 13 years - thus being married about 1887. Could the Maria Veltri be the same Maria Veltri, who was the widow in the 1910 Census, and whose daughter had married Giovanni Guariglia? Also living in the 1900 census household of George and Maria Veltri are the following children: Louis b. 1890; Francesco b. 1891; Antonio b. 1897; and Anna b. 1899 - all born in New York. Of course, if Lucrezia Luerzine Veltri was also their daughter, there is a discrepancy since her birth year has been given elsewhere as 1883. Also according to the 1910 household census for George and Maria Veltri, they are shown as having been married for 12 years - thus being married about 1887. And other census records indicate that Lucrezia was born about 1883, 4 years before the marriage. Of course, Lucrezia Veltri had married Giovanni Guariglia in 1896 in New York, and therefore, she would not be found in the 1900 Census with the family of George and Maria Veltri. When ages and dates do not always agree, and the only records available are census records, the discrepancies might be attributed to the fact that the information was taken every 10 years, and it is unknown also how knowledgeable or from whom the information was given to the census taker.

From the NYC Birth Index:

Califano Pietro Jul 16 1901 11813 Kings
Califano Giuseppe Oct 29 1903 18464 Kings
Califano Angelina Nov 6 1905 26702 Kings

These birth records should have the full name of Michele's wife Julia, and possibly her place of birth.

According to the NYC Marriage Index...

Guariglia Giovanni Jul 5 1896 Manhattan 10894
Baldassano Lucrezia Apr 30 1896 Manhattan 10894


I have no idea why the dates are different above, but they are listed as the bride and groom for marriage certificate #10894 in Manhattan. :-)

If you think this may be your relatives...looks like Lucrezia's maiden name may have been Baldassano. Quite possibly VELTRI was her mother's maiden name.
