Help with Great Grandmother Anna Proscia

Postby nicolefazio » 25 Jul 2012, 02:39

Okay so I after a ton of searching for her last name, and finally tracking it down , I am looking for information on my Great Grandmother , anything really...

Anna Proscia (born about 1875.. a very rough estimate)
she was either from Bitetto or Grumo Appula
she married Leonardo Fazio ( born 1867)
and had 2 sons Francesco (1895) and my grandfather Giuseppe (1897)
I think she had a brother named Giuseppe Leonardo Proscia ( I found his travel on ellisisland.org)

I am trying to figure out if she ever came to the USA.. I know she passed away before 1910 , because Leonardo remarried in the USA.

Leonardo alreadywas in USA .. and joining at son (?) Francesco in NY..

in a previous trip of 1910, I found the same Leonardo Fazio 43 old, with wife Anna 32 old and children:
Giuseppe, Maria, Angela
Leonardo joining at brother Francesco in NY; he was already in USA from 1902-1910 and seeming also the other family members...
