Hey Julia, for everyone's reference, the 1920 census in Garfield Lena probably wouldn't be on a census earlier than 1920 if she arrived abt 1912-1913 (note: Lena also known as Lily, Lillian on 1930 and 1940 census records) Valarie

in 1940 census, it was another Schillaci:

abt Lena Torrente: I believe that the first name was Angela [Angela>Angelina (= little Angela)>Lina ( diminutive of Angelina)=Lena in USA). I found a possible arrival record:
First Name: Angela Last Name: Torrente Ethnicity: Italy, Italian South Last Place of Residence: Fairgnano, Sicily Date of Arrival: Dec 07, 1913 Age at Arrival: 13y Gender: F Marital Status: S Ship of Travel: Stampalia Port of Departure: Palermo Manifest Line Number: 0018 pag 1 http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0018 born in Favignana....
pag 2 http://www.ellisisland.org/EIFile/popup ... &line=0018 joining at brother Giacomo Torrente in Trenton NJ I am a bit positive abt the find, because the surname Torrente is very popular in Favignana( Egadi islands, Trapani province, Sicily, IT) as a well the her mother maiden name: GRAMMATICO that I believe right spell... suanj
Thank you! I should have mentioned that I was able to find the information I was looking for. I have all the Schillaci records, and I was able to find Lena Torrenti. She arrived with her sister Francesca as ROSOLIA, in 1913. Not sure how ROSOLIA turned into LENA, but there you have it I also found Rosolia's 1902 Birth Record on Familysearch.org
Rosolia married Paolo Schillaci in NJ on 1916. She lied that she was 18 years old...she was actually only about 15 or 16, based on her 1902 birth record!
