Sebastiano Capozzi family - help needed

Postby George Berthelson » 15 Nov 2011, 02:21

I have the following information about Sebastiano Capozzi born 21 Nov 1881 in Santa Croce del Sannio Benevento, Campania, Italy,he married Angeline Cadet prior to his coming to the United States and they had one son named Joseph born in 1903.

His first trip seems to be by himself since a 1930 census shows the Aneline immigrated in 1907.

First Name: Sebastiano
Last Name: Capozzi
Ethnicity: Italy, Italian South
Last Place of Residence: Benevento
Date of Arrival: Mar 13, 1904
Age at Arrival: 22y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Neustria
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0027

In 1907 I find him on another ship coming to New York and this time the ship log is stamped Not an Immigrant. Although Angeline is show coming to United States in 1907, she is not listed as traveling with Sebastiano and neither is Joseph.

First Name: Sebastiano
Last Name: Capozzi
Ethnicity: Italy, Italian South
Last Place of Residence: S. Croce Sanno
Date of Arrival: Mar 02, 1907
Age at Arrival: 25y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Kaiser Wilhelm der Grosse
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0024

I can not find Angeline or Joseph on any ship manifest.

If you can help me get back to Sebastiano's ancestors, I'd really appreciate it.
Thanks for what you do.
George

I think the correct lastname for Sebastiano's wife Angelina was Varrone..

21 december 1907
Varrone Angela, age 24, female, married, place of birth and last residence in Italy Santa Croce del Sannio, leaving in Italy her mother Libera Varrone, traelling with her son Giuseppe Capozzi age 4. Joining her husband Sebastiano Capozzi in Fairmont - WVA

I think you are correct. I have Sebastiano in Fairmont, WVa during this time. I have some documentation ordered that should clear up my error of what Angela's maiden name was.

Thanks for all your help

Sebastiano Capozzi born 21 Nov 1881 in Delsanio, Italy according to his U.S. World War II Draft Registration Cards, 1942.
From the site of the State Archive of Benevento the military record for Sebastiano Capozzi: the place of birth is Santa Croce del Sannio
with a birth date of 26/11/1881.
Is it possible to get a copy of a birth certificate and if so, how much will it cost me?
Thanks,
George

From the site Ancestry.com the WW1 Draft Registration Card for Sebastiano..

World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918

Name: Sabestiano Cappattzo
County: Marion
State: West Virginia
Birth Date: 22 Nov 1881
Race: White
FHL Roll Number: 1992624
DraftBoard: 2

http://search.ancestry.com/iexec?htx=Vi ... d=22888770

At those times it was pretty common to be registered at the town hall civil state office a fews days after the birth so possibly Sebastiano was really born around 21/22 but maybe his father listed him in the birth register on the 26...

You can write to the Comune/Town of Santa Croce del Sannio asking them a copy of his birth act:

Comune di Santa Croce del Sannio
Piazza Municipio
82020 Santa Croce del Sannio (BN)
Italy

here some form letters in italian:

From the site:

http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_bcresul ... &NumRec=25

the 1909 birth register entry for Herman Capozzi, showing his mother maiden name: Angeline Varrone
http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.as ... Type=Birth

and the 1910 entry for Sebastian Capozzi, mother maiden name: Angeline Viron (mispelled)
http://www.wvculture.org/vrr/va_view.as ... Type=Birth

Possible death certificate for Sebastiano Capozzi?

Thank you Pink67. The Herman Capozzi link is a good one but the last two links is to another Sebastiano Capozzi from Italy also but not my brother-in-law's father. It really gets confusing some times because my Sebastiano was also in this area at the same time and working in the coal mines. My B-I-L, George, and Herman were both born will their father was working in the mines.

Re: Sebastiano Capozzi family - help needed

Postby George Berthelson » 22 Nov 2011, 00:39

I found out that Sebastiano's first wife, Angela Varrone, died in 1928 or 29. A social security application for their son George that was filed in 1936, states that his mother's name is Angeline Cadet. The 1930 census shows Sebastiano's wife as Angeline that came here in 1907 from Italy. It is looking like the second wife also immagrated to the US but I don't have a port of departure. Any help at clearing up this second wife is greatly appreciated.

I found out that my death dates for Angela Capozzi may not be correct. There is a tombstone for an Angela Capozzi in the Old Sacred Heart Cemetery of Jeannette, Westmoreland County, Pennsylvania, that show date of b. 1883 and d. 1932. I know she lived in this town when she died. If this is my angeline Capozzi then she would have still been on the 1930 census in question as opposed to the second wife of Sebastiano. Still don't have any information on the second wife except she only spoke Italian.
