Apollonia Grana From Italy

Postby dlobo74 » 18 Oct 2013, 17:00

Does anyone have info on Apollonia Grana from Italy? I am mostly looking for if she had any children or date of death. She was born around 1886 and married Salvatore LoBosco. I think she came to the US around 1913. I would to learn when Salvatore and Apollonia both passed away but it has been virtually impossible!

Where did they live in US?

Married in US?

Do you know of Salvatore's occupation?

Any details you can provide will help with the search! :-)

EDIT TO ADD:

Noticed that you are in Pittsburgh :-)
Located this family in Pittsburg in 1930 Census on Cliff St.
Father listed as Salvatore BOSCO (common to find the "Lo" missing)and he works as a chef in a restaurant.
Mother is Josephine (some immigrants chose to use "American" names)
Salvatore and Josephine born in US and immigrated about 1902.
They have 7 children all born in Pennsylvania...

Could this be the family you are searching for?

Interesting - I found that info too but wasn't sure. They were married in 1908 and she did not come over until 1913, those are the only dates I know of. They were married in Italy in 1908 and had a stillborn baby in 1910.

THe 1913 shipmanifest of Apollonia Grana I posted says she never sailed (she was lined out) can you post the one you said you found I still don't think she came over

Birth of baby born Francesco Lo Bosco
INDEX# 20
1910 Feb 18th in the town of Altavilla in house on via Loreto birth of baby born without life they named Francesco Lo Bosco son of Salvatore Lo Bosco age 27 property owner and Apollonia Grana age 24 (1886)woman of the house baby was delivered by Marianna Lamberti age 69 midwife

I believe she stayed in Altavilla so the best way is to write Altavilla and see if there is a death record for her 1913-1916 maybe she died in the birth of the second child

Here is the link where it looks like she came over with Salvatore:

I am agreeing with you though. I think Apollonia died and Salvatore remarried and maybe changed his name to Bosco. However, the dates for the Salvatore Bosco in Pittsburgh does not seem to jive.

Wait - that document also has her crossed out. What was I thinking. I wonder if she died in 1913, and then Salvatore remarried. The Sal Bosco I found in Pittsburgh was married and had a son Thomas in 1912 or 1913. I don't think that is him.

This is the same manifest that I found, and probably the same one that Marty saw :-)

It states that Apollonia Grana was going to her "brother Francesco at 407 Trenton Ave" Pittsburgh - which is the SAME as the line above her "Lo Bosco, Salvatore" going to his brother Francesco...
Since Salvatore is not crossed out, we can probably assume he sailed.
ALSO - he indicates that he was in US from 1907-1912, previously - AND lists his last permanent residence as Pittsburgh, US. while Apollonia's last permanent residence was Altavilla...

We could search for a US Census for Salvatore (and possibly Francesco) in 1910. :-)
