Postby gallohjc » 05 Nov 2013, 07:51

Born in Cianciana, Sicily 1-8-1884, came to U.S. 7-22-1913. Davide was married in Sicily (spouse unknown) and they had a daughter, Narda. In 1919 in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania he married Carmella Taglialavore Scardino, born in Sicily 11-24-1901 and came to U.S. 3-17-1907. Davide died in Philadelphia Pennsylvania 9-9-1972. Carmella died in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania 2-1-1985.

Would appreciate any info on Davide's parents and other family members.

Hello Helen :-)

Here is a link to Davide Castellano's birth record in Cianciana with translation...

Record #12
Dated 10 January 1884 at 9:30 AM at the town office in Cianciana
Appearing before the official was Anna Maria Sgrò, 65, midwife residing in Cianciana, to declare that at 2 AM, YESTERDAY (9th) at the place at Via di Angelo #10, to Leonarda Bellanca, spinner, wife of Benedetto Castellano, sulfur miner, both living in this town, was born a male child who was presented to the official and to whom was given the name DAVIDE

Note: It looks like Davide followed the Italian naming tradition with his children... First daughter named after his mother (Narda short form of Leonarda) and first son after his father, Benedetto :-)

EDIT TO ADD:

Here is the publication of the banns of marriage for Davide's first marriage.
Record #38
Dated 31 July 1910 in Cianciana
Appearing before the official were:
~ Davide Castellano, single, age 26, sulfur miner residing in Cianciana, son of Benedetto, age 52, sulfur miner; and of Leonarda Bellanca, housewife;
AND
~ Giuseppe Prizzia, age 48, middle class, father of Giuseppa Prizzia, age 16, daughter of Giuseppa Montalbano, housewife, all residents of Cianciana.
The mother of the bride also appeared to give her consent to the marriage.
Lower notation appears to indicate that the groom has an impending military obligation.
Banns were posted on the 7, 14, 17 of August.

And more....

Here is the marriage act of Davide Castellano and Giuseppa Prizzia (age 17 in this record) - dated 11 September 1910

Record #39 (left side of image
https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1990778972

Note: Clarification, because the pubblication record was confusing... Giuseppe Prizzia, 48, and Giuseppa Montalbano, housewife, are the parents of Giuseppa Prizzia.

ADDITION:

'Here is the birth record for a sister of Davide... Domenica Castellano born in 1886 on 1 May.
