Guiseppi Busco

Postby Cobraman325 » 20 Mar 2012, 02:11

My grandfather was Pasquale Fusco, born in 1896 in Italy, came to America in 1910 with his Father Guiseppi Fusco and his brother Ralph. They settled in Rhode Island. Pasquale married Vincenza Rao, born in 1900. I am trying to find out where in Italy both my great grandfather/grandfather were from. All I was told that it was Southern Italy. My grandmother Vincenza says her family was from northern Italy, near Milan. The pronouciation of the exact place is something like "Pita Vidan".

Is this possibly the ship manifest for your GF and his brother?
They are traveling with their MOTHER, Maria D'Aloia, age 50.
The age for Pasquale (14) is right, but it looks like he may not have traveled on this ship. His brother Raffaele (Ralph) is age 11.
They are going to Maria's other son Gabriele Fusco in PROVIDENCE, RI
Leaving Maria's mother Nicoletta Cavelli in CASALVECCHIO

I agree with Marty :-)
The surname FUSCO and the surname D'ALOIA are found there.

You may wish to search the civil registrations (births, marriages, deaths) from Casalvecchio. They are available on microfilm to rent and view at your nearest LDS Family History Center, and cover the years 1809 - 1929.

This is awesome research. The draft card is definitely my grandfathers (Pasquale), he lived his adult life at 42 Tuxedo Ave, Providence, RI. I do not know where he lived as a child with his father and mother. He met my grandmother Vincenza Rao in the US, and she was born here, in Rhode Island in 1900.
