surname Wara

Postby ally » 04 Mar 2005, 19:37

In going thru more census papers, I came across my g-aunt's married name of Mary Wara, residing in downtown No. Bergen, NJ. She had one child Catherine born in 1909. She is listed as been married 2 years and not widowed. However, she is not living with spouse. Under column of fathers origin for the child, it is listed Italy.

I check some other records and saw there was a Vincent Wara living with a Peter his son in Orange NJ in 1900. Hoqwever, when I checked the surname here it shows no such name.

Anyone have any ideas???

I cannot locate a marriage license for her in the archives either. I checked back 5 years, in case of mistakes.


Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks.
Ally

Is very possible that the just surname spelling is VARA; many Vara people lived in Bergen -NJ; are an Mary Vara in Bergen census 1930, birthyear abt 1872, and an Frank(Francesco) Vara, birthyear abt 1872 also in Bergen...
Vara surname is tipical of Avellino area (especially Greci town...regards, suanj

I do not know Mary Wara's middle name, she did get married in or around the year 1910, she stated in census around 1908. Child born in January 1909. I know she wasn't listed as widowed! She lived with my g-grndparents Francesco/Angeline Venaglio aka Vannelli. She is my great aunt, the sister of my gramother. I am trying to piece together my grams family, however, she was tight lipped about her family. I cannot find any trace of her after 1910 census, none in 1920 or 1930. I do however remember hearing a rumor that her mom remarried a Spina or Spinnelli and moved somewhere in New York around 1916. This told to me by my aunt.

Are you familiar with the Wara name in No. Bergen at that time?

Sorry, explane better:
-Mary .. maiden name unknow, was married in 1908 with Wara italian man.. (so Wara not exist in Italy and sure are Vara or similar)
-Mary was an sister of Angelina... Angelina married with Francesco Vanaglio or Vannelli....
- maiden name of Angelina..: unknow
-Mary lived for some time in Bergen New Jersey with an child born in 1909
-Mary remarried, but not widow(therefore divorced), with an man, also italian, with surname Spina or Spinelli..
- Mary and Spinelli husband moved in New York around 1916..

resume:
-no Mary birthdate...
-no Mary surname.....
-no Mary birthplace...
-no just spelling surname of first husband.....
-no just spelling of second husband...

Dear Ally:

Hi Ally,

A suggestion, Suanj pointed out the surname may be Vara not Wara. Both sound very similar when pronounced. Try searching the cenus again, looking for Vara. Also the marrige records at the NJ archives are alphabetical by groom, by year. If the name was Vara you would have missed it. Could be worth checking again under Vara.

Good Luck
Debbie
