trying to find info on my 3 times grandparents

Postby Crunchy2083 » 24 Apr 2012, 04:33

I know that they are born in Italy Giuseppe (Joe) rotolo and Maria (Mary) Rotolo and married there. They did come to the states they lived in Louisiana. I know for sure they had a son born in Italy around 1885 his name is Carlo rotolo. I have a about migration year for Joe around 1891 and Mary and Carlo 1893 according to 1900 and 1910 census record. I do not have a maiden name for Maria yet.

Carlo Rotolo on WWI draft registration card is Calogero Rotolo; he used as so many sicilians the Carlo/Charles first name instead of Calogero:

World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918

County: Tangipahoa
State: Louisiana
Birth Date: 6 Jan 1885
Race: White
FHL Roll Number: 1685022
DraftBoard: 0

next of kin: Rosa wife.


seeming that 1885 birthyear is ok....
