Cazzola or Casola and Zaupa

Postby Jcazzola » 12 Jun 2012, 01:07

Hello
I am looking for my roots on my fathers side. His grandfather's name on his marriage certificate was Guisepe Casola(Joe Cazzola). He married Theodelinda Zaupa(Lineda Cazzola) in Crystal Fall, MI. My Great Grandfather's father's name on the marriage certificate is Louis Casola, mother was listed as Defrances Luigia. As far as I know, my Great Grandfather never talked about his side of the family and Louis might have been his uncle that sponsor his to come over. I know that in 1968 he traveled back to Italy to settle land agreements. In the upcoming year my husband and I are planning a trip to Italy and I would love to see and meet my family.

I appreciate any all information, thank you, Jennie Cazzola Kitelinger

Welcome to IG, Jennie!

Thus far I've only been able to locate information on your great grandmother Theodelinda Zaupa. Here is a 1909 ship manifest for her, her parents and siblings. Lines 16 to 21. Father's name, Alessio Zaupa or Zampa?, born Cornedo, province of Vicenza; mother Antonia (unknown surname), born Castelgomberto, province of Vicenza. Headed to Michigan.

Teodelinda and siblings, born in Michigan.

Another manifest for Alessio Zauppa (Zaupa) from 1905:

Previously in US from 1893-1905
Last residence: Castelgomberto
Destination: Hermanville MI to join brother in law Luigi Cristiana

Just a guess but it appears that Alessio took Antonia and children back to Italy, then returned himself, and later went back to Italy and the entire family returned to Michigan in 1909 per the manifest referenced in my first post. Wife Antonia's surname might have been Cristiana.

For reference, 1915 marriage record for Giuseppe and Teodelinda

I believe the last name listed for Giuseppe's mother should be Luigia De Franceschi.
