More Ferrara research and brick wall!

Postby deejasmine » 29 Jul 2012, 15:39

I am working systmatically through the Ferrara Family - next up by GG-Grandmother and her oldest son:

Maria Genovese Ferrara
b Aug 1845 in Italy
Arrived Nov 1897 vessel Bolivia - meeting husband Ignazio @ 230 Elizabeth St. NY - traveled w/ daughter Francesca and grandchildren

1900 census for Pawling, NY
- widowed (4/10/1900) and living with son:
Vincenzo Ferrara
b 1867 in Italy
m to Maria Mar 1861
children:
Mary Dec 1890 in Italy
Rosey June 1893 in Italy
(Eugina 1896 found on manifest but not on 1900 census)

I am unable to find any of these individuals on any other census and have been unsuccessful at locating Vincenzo or Maria's manifest

Any ideas of where to look next?
Thank you

Thank you Tessa! I greatly appreciate the assistance - what a loss that must have been after coming over from your home-country to start a new life. Very sad.

Tessa;
May not be her afterall - the previous information I have is that she arrived here Nov 1898 - born in 1897 - unless the Sept date is her birthdate and not her death date?

18 Nov 1898 manifest
18 Nov 1898 SS Alsatia, Naples to NY
Lines 6-9
- last residence Alimena
- joining husband Vincenzo Ferrara at 243 Elizabeth Street, New York
Ma Concetta Gianno? 46 (abt 1852)
Daughters:
Maria Ferrara 8 (abt 1890)
Rosalia? Ferrara 5 (abt 1893)
Eugenia Ferrara 1 (abt 1897)

I will have to look into that a bit further I guess. - thanks again! ~D
