Giovanni Capozzoli

Postby lace115 » 06 Nov 2013, 06:32

My grandfather Giovanni Capozzoli was born in Aquara Italy on March 13, 1891 to Antonio Capozzoli and Rosaria Palamone. I have been unable to ascertain whether he had any siblings or whether Rosaria was still alive at the time he came to the US in 1909. Any ideas?

Hi Linda,

if this 1909 arrival manifest is the correct one, then Giovanni stated that his nearest relative in Italy was his father Antonio and that he was going to meet his brother Lucio in Washington PA:

From Ancestry.com:

Thanks Laura,

I did find that manifest. I assume it was my Giovanni because of the references to his father Antonio. I have done a great deal of searching and cannot confirm that he had a brother Lucido. I would love to search the Aquara records to prove it one way or the other. The trail seems to end in the US for Lucido Capozzoli. I also wonder if Lucido was a friend. Giovanni's naturalization papers were witnessed by Lucido Consolmagno in 1927. The naturalization papers show that he arrived in Philly on October 25, 1919. At some point he may have gone back to Italy and then returned to the US in 1919.
Any thoughts?

I did,I just can't confirm that he was related to Giovanni. The original manifest of Giovanni in 1909 shows his brother's name as Lucio. I could not find Lucio and thought it could be Lucido. No one in the family knew if Giovanni had any siblings. I don't know of any links to MA. This manifest of Lucido shows an arrival after Giovanni. It seems to be a mystery that is driving me crazy.

But it states that he made several trips before this arrival :-)

Hi Linda,

I've been researching my Aquara Capozzoli's and found info on Giovanni's brothers and poss. father's parents. I'm going to try to send you a private message. If you don't get it, but you see this post, let me know and I'll try to email the info. to you or just paste it here.

Lucido Capozzoli whose WWI draft card was posted on this thread by Tessa is, I believe, a relative of mine.

Good luck with your search,
Anufar
