Searching for Information About Cusimanos In Castelbuono

Postby siskojnash » 06 Sep 2013, 03:44

I am searching for information about Giuseppe Cusimano (born about 1814) and Anna Coco. They had at least 3 children: Vincenzo, born June 1, 1877 in Castelbuono, Santi (or Santo), who was born on November 5, 1871 in Castelbuono, and Gioachino, who was born in April 1890. I would really like to be able to get a marriage record, and possibly birth records for Giuseppe Cusimano and Anna Coco. I would particularly like to find out who the parents of Giuseppe Cusimano were, and who his siblings were. Thank you very much.

Would the available records go back far enough to get a marriage record for Giuseppe Cusimano and Anna Coco? A reunion is happening next weekend. Everyone's always said how Vincenzo was first cousin to his wife, RoseMarie Cusimano. I would really like to either find proof that it's true, or find out exactly what their relationship was, other than husband and wife.

This MIGHT be their marriage record, but dates don't fit:

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... X:33170596

Are you sure about Giuseppe's birth date? If he was born in 1814 and had a child in 1890, he should have been 76!

Anyway, the record states:
Marriage date: February 22nd, 1873
Giuseppe was 32 and a peasant, born in Castelbuono, son of Santi (peasant) and Rosa Rannò (?), both living in Castelbuono;
Anna was 22, born in Castelbuono, son of Vincenzo and Anna Maria Ranno, both deceased and Rosa Rannò, both living in Castelbuono
Giuseppe "Pippo" Moccaldi

Thank you! I'm not certain of the birth date. Someone translated a document for me. I thought it sounded weird. If you have time, could you please look at these records and see if the info matches? I think Rosemarie's father, Luigi, who is born abt 1849, is a brother of Giuseppe. His wife was Vincenza Castiglia, who was born abt 1862. Are there birth or marriage records for those two, by any chance?

Birth record of Vincenzo Cusimano
Act date: March 24th, 1904 at 11:30 am
Birth date and place: June 1st, 1877 at 7:15 pm, in 17, via Sant'Anna
Father: Giuseppe, peasant, 63 years (in 1904!)
Mother: Anna Coco

The act mentions a judgment of the CourtTermini, authorizing the late declaration of birth. Probably, when Vincenzo decided to marry, they realized his birth had never been declared (this was not unfrequent at that time).

So, Giuseppe was born about 1841...

Thank you! So the record you found definitely seems to be the right one! The family always said Vincenzo and Rose Marie were first cousins. Finally, we have the documents that prove it. Are there birth records available for her parents, Luigi Cusimano and Vincenza Castiglia? I just realized I have the marriage records for them. But the birth records would be the last bit of proof of the relationship. Also, I'm curious about the Castiglia family, too.

Could there be any birth records for Luigi Cusimano and Vincenza Castiglia? He was born about 1849 and she was born about 1862. Also, is there any way to find out about people born before these records begin on the family search site?

Can someone please post the passenger list for the S.S. Martha Washington arriving on March 19, 1913, which left Palermo on March 5, 1913? I just found family on that list. It has two pages.
