Searching for Aunt

Postby gemellua » 05 Aug 2012, 00:18

Trying to locate my great aunt-Giuseppa Randazzo.

I know she was single when she came to the USA. She arrived at Ellis Island on
24 Nov 1899 abroad the Trojan Prince. (see below link)

With her was her sister-in-law Marina Di Pasquale and Marina’s one-month-old daughter
Anna Randazzo. All were going to Morris Avenue 152 ST # 474 – to reunite
with Marina’s husband Matteo (Giuseppa’s brother). Giuseppa is listed on line 3.
Marina Line 1 and Anna Line 2. Marina’s name is listed incorrectly as Maria
on this manifest. For some reason Matteo is listed as Michele. Unfortunately
there is not a second page to the manifest.

http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 025150032&

Once Giuseppa (b: 4 Dec 1873) arrived I can’t find a trace of her. A cousin informed me
that he thought she had married a man who was from the family’s home town of Sciara, Sicily.
He remembered that Giuseppa had a few sons, all were older than he was (b: 1912).
He said he recalled the family lived in a few places: New Rochelle, NY, New Jersey, and Virginia.
Living in New Rochelle made sense to me since two of her brothers and lots of cousins lived
there. My cousin also said Giuseppa’s sons were wrestlers.

I noticed on http://www.italiangen.org there are 4 Giuseppa Randazzos married before 1907.
One may be her or none of them. These are from Manhattan. I'm guessing because most
of the family that were in the USA during the early 1900s married in Bronx/Manhattan.

Husbands are listed as (Soundex R532):

Lucis Calderaio (Certificate #12800 Jun 18, 1905)

Andrea Pastore (Certificate #24656 Oct 7, 1906)

Giuseppe Randisi (Certificate #25191 Dec 11, 1904)
Possible she married a Randazzo cousin? This Giuseppa’s
surname also listed as Randisi.)

Alberto Manconi (Certificate #1602 Mar 5, 1903)

I don't have access to the 1900 Census for NY so I couldn't check for her.
Since you guys work miracles everyday with so little info placed in your
hands, I'm hoping you can help me out. Much thanks!

suanj:

Thank you. Unfortunately these women are not my Giuseppa Randazzo.
Her parents names were Giuseppe and Anna (nee Castiglia).

May be she is one of the other women listed in my original post?
