Trying to find out about Tommaso Cusimano

Postby siskojnash » 25 Dec 2013, 20:21

I would like to find out the exact relationship between Tommaso Cusimano and his wife, Eleonora Cusimano. I'm told that they're cousins, but want to find out exactly how closely they were connected. I already know a bit about Eleonora's side.
Eleonora Cusimano was born on February 11, 1886 in Castelbuono and died there sometime in 1918 during the Influenza outbreak. I don't have death records for her or two of her children who also died then. She married Tommaso Cusimano on April 5, 1913. Her birth record talks about the marriage, but I don't have that record, either.
Eleonora's parents were Luigi Cusimano (born abt 1949) and Vincenza Castiglia (born abt 1962. They were married on September 21, 1879 in Castelbuono. I have the marriage record, but no birth records. Luigi's parents were Santi Cusimano (born ABT 1813) and Rosa Banno. I only know about them from Luigi's marriage record. This is what I already know from Eleonora's side of the family.

Tommaso Cusimano was born on February 18, 1877 in Castelbuono. I don't know when he died. I have his birth record already. His parents were Antonio Cusimano and Anna Di Napoli.
I hope that this is enough information for someone to be able to help me find out exacly how Tommaso Cusimano is related to Eleonora Cusimano. Thank you for your time.

Thank you so much! Does anyone have any ideas about the Tommaso Cusimano side? Tommaso and Eleonora are supposed to be some sort of cousins.

Could someone please help me find out about the family of Tommaso Cusimano? Tommaso Cusimano was born on February 18, 1877 in Castelbuono. I don't know when he died. I have his birth record already. His parents were Antonio Cusimano and Anna Di Napoli. He was married to Eleonora Cusimano, apparently some sort of cousin, and Rosalia Alaimo, after Eleonora and two of his children died during the influenza outbreak in 1918.
He apparently came to the U.S. at some point after that, and then returned to Castelbuono. Is there a record of this somewhere? There wouldn't be death records as late as 1918 available anywhere, would there? I would really like to find out exactly how Eleonora and Tommaso were related.
