Marchese from Palermo, Italy

Postby cmm » 27 May 2013, 22:57

Tyring to find out more information on my fathers side of the family. Specifically, my Grandfather Anthony Marchese's parents. I think my Great grand fathers name was Leonard Marchese and I think he married my great grand mother who's last name was Petruso. I am not completely sure if my great grand parents came from Palermo as they could have perhaps come out of Partinico, Italy. But I remember Palermo being spoken of when my grand fathers name come up.I am also curious if there were more than 3 children. I only have information on my grand father Anthony, my great uncle Salvatore and my great aunt Cahtherine. Any information would be welcomed. Thanks in advance.

History that I do have on my grand father Anthony Marchese and is siblings:
Anthony had a brother, Salvatore and a sister Catherine Marchese. All three immigrated from Palermo, Italy through Ellis Island and remained in the Bronx, NY area.
Anthony DOB 2/5/1891, DOD 1/12/1969. Married Angelina Buscio
Salvatore DOB 1883, DOD 1963. Never married
Catherine DOB 12/8/1881, DOD 1/31/1946. Married Frank Cilluffo

Do you have a copy of Anthony and Angelina's marriage record? Their parents' names should be on that, although possibly misspelled-

Marchese Anofrio Jan 25 1919 Bronx record #295
Buscio Angelina Jan 25 1919 record #295 Bronx

To order a copy, if you don't have it-
http://www.nyc.gov/html/records/html/vi ... iage.shtml

His World War I draft registration card shows Palermo as his place of birth. Just don't know if it refers to the province of Palermo or the city itself

Partinico is given as his last residence as well as his place of birth on his June 24,1907 passenger list.

Another record which should have a place of birth and parents' names would be the application for a social security card-

Anthony Marchese, "United States Social Security Death Index"
Given Name: Anthony
Middle Name:
Surname: Marchese
Name Suffix:
Birth Date: 5 February 1891
Social Security Number: 067-10-0168
State: New York
Last Place of Residence: Bronx, New York
Previous Residence Postal Code: 10467
Event Date: January 1969
Age: 78

Here's information on how to obtain the application:
http://ssa-custhelp.ssa.gov/app/answers/detail/a_id/118
http://www.ssa.gov/foia/request.html

BTW, there are some online records for Partinico at familysearch.org under Continental Europe. I don't see Onofrio's 1891 birth record there though. Also there are some online church records and I did not see a baptism record for him, at least in the parish whose records are online.
