Help with Pompeo/Coco family

Postby pm16 » 02 Oct 2013, 00:45

Hello,
I could really use some help with another side of my family. My great grandfather was Michael (Michele) Pompeo born in 1869 in Italy. He married Maria Teresa Coco born 1874. Michael immigrated to the US around 1893. I think he was on the ship Assyria. I don't know when she immigrated over. They settled in Jersey City, NJ. I have NO information other than census records. I have no idea where in Italy they are from. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
Thank you

Possible 1896 manifest for a Maria Cocco, age 22 (yob 1874); immigration year is close to year stated on census records. Unfortunately, there is no last residence.
