Maucieri / Santoianni / Donofrio

Postby JMaucieri » 18 Nov 2013, 04:32

Hello all. I'm new :) I did creep through previous posts on these names (Maucieri / Santoianni) and MAYBE some are a match, but I have such little information that I cannot be certain. Lots of railroad workers here.

Here's what I know:
My grandparents came from Italy (Bonefro) to Western PA (Altoona): Maria Graza Santoianni (b1898) and Nicola Maucieri (b1891). They married shortly after she came in early 1917 (and my dad, Anthony, was born late in 1917, but that's another story :) ). I do not know when Nicola came, but I'd not imagine super long prior given that they had met in Italy (families knew each other). Nicola came with his half/step brother Francesco Vestri (spelling?).

Maria's parents were Francesco Santoianni and Lucia Donofrio. Both of which also came to the states to my understaning. Francesco died somewhere near Pittsburgh of pneumonia. Lucia came over with her son, my grandmother's brother, Michele (Michael) and they eventually headed to the New Rochelle, NY area. Michael's children: Frank and Lucy. Lucy became a Vaccaro.

Nicola's parents were Giuseppe Maucieri and Antoinette ? They did not come to the states.


Here's what I'd love to find out:
Basically anything beyond what is above, but... I'd love to find:
- Antoinette's maiden name
- When Francesco died and where he was buried in the Pburgh area
- When Nicola came to the states for certain

If ANY of these tidbits strike with anything you've found in your research I would so appreciate the lead. It's very frustrating to find a depth of my Gx13Grandparents on my mother's side and not be able to get past my GGrandparents on my father's side.

Wow! Who would expect 4 replies within 12 hours. You folks are amazing! :) Thank you for this warm welcome!!!

suanj, I do not believe the Nicola you are referring to is one in the same. My grandfather's birthdate has been confirmed through a remaining Aunt as Feb 20, 1891 and his mother Antoinette.

I did find the census info on Lucy from 1940 and that all lines up. It is very possible that Francesco did not pass in Pburgh, but that is what my Aunt had in her head. Perhaps it was someone else.

The link to the birth record for Maria Grazia... Oh my!!

Marty, the additional records on Lucia's parents... double OH MY!!

I can't wait to get home from work to look closer.

suanj, I do not believe the Nicola you are referring to is one in the same. My grandfather's birthdate has been confirmed through a remaining Aunt as Feb 20, 1891 and his mother Antoinette.

In 1891, in Bonefro nobody Nicola Maucieri was born .. here the 1891 births index:
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0
as a well nobody Nicola Maucieri was born in 1892 ... here the 1892 births index:
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0

I found just this Nicola Maucieri:
Nicola Maucieri was born in Bonefro on 12 Jan 1890 #9 son of Giuseppe Maucieri 36 old, farmer, and of Carmela Colabella...

for that I posted it...

also by marriage's ten index ( Marty found the same record, but just for explain better I post it):

from 1876 to 1885 just 1 Giuseppe Maucieri was married in 1877: here the index abt marriage of Giuseppe Maucieri year 1877 #39
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0

and here the marriage act 10 nov 1877 #39 Giuseppe Maucieri 22 old son of late Francesco Maucieri and of Maria Donata Massarelli, married at Carmina Colabella 19 old daughter of late Bonifacio Colabella and of Celesta Primiano:
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0

and from 1886 to 1895 just 1 and same Giuseppe Maucieri married here the index:
http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0
[b]here the marriage act:

married on 20 sep 1890 #29: Giuseppe Maucieri 34 old son of late Francesco Maucieri and of Maria Donata Massarelli, married at Angiola Di Marzo 24 old daughter of Antonio Di Marzo and of Rosa Iarocci[/b]

http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0

Carmina/Carmela Colabella died on 2 Feb 1890 #28
death act:

http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... 1.jpg.html

so:

Nicola Maucieri born in Bonefro on 12 Jan 1890 #9 son of Giuseppe Maucieri 36 old, farmer, and of Carmela Colabella...

it is your ancestor...

I meant no disrespect in my previous reply. I hope I did not offend.

Do understand this information haw blown my mind as it wiped out some of what I thought I knew to be true... and I cannot wait to take some of these details to my Aunt to see what might mean something to her.

The other good news is I am getting a little practice with Italian as I am interpretting these documents.

Thank you again for taking the time to help a stranger.
God bless!

Another thank you Marty! To think I've gone from just having a couple first names to knowing then names and some dates associated with my GGG - just wow!

So, it hit me last night laying in bed to go to the date I had previously believed my grandfather was born in the records. Well, sure enough there is a Nicola, but with another last name. On the side there is a note written about him marrying my grandmother giving her name and the date I had. Within the main record I do see Antonia (recall I was looking for a mother's name of Antoinette).

http://www.antenati.san.beniculturali.i ... ewsIndex=0

Could someone tell me what would being born into this other surname typically "mean" in Italy?!

I may not speak the language, but what I could get from here was pointed me to something as such. I appreciate the confirmation of the content Marty.

So I would guess she was unmarried (same surname as her father). had Nicola and gave him over to the Aniceto family. I can only imagine the scandal this would be, no?

I'm betting I'll find an entry somewhere for Maria Antonina marrying and having a child with a Vestry/Vestri. So much digging to do!
