Mansolillos in Boston

Postby Amansolillo » 02 Jan 2014, 23:18

I am looking for information on a group of siblings: Carmela, Alfonso, Giovanni, Lucia, and Saveria Mansolillo. Their father was Giuseppe Mansolillo (whose brother was Gaetano). All immigrated to America before 1904. At one point, they settled in Boston. Alfonso lived in Rhode Island at one point as well. I've tried searching for census records they may be in, but I have had no success. I would appreciate any help. Thanks.
Last names of interest: Mansolillo, Morena, Grasso, Montecalvo, Fusco, Sinapi, DelBonis, Grossi, Sormanti, Cocuzzoli, Simonelli, Bevilacqua, Uccello, Cultrera, Pesaturo, Fragola

Thanks for the help everyone. There are a few ambiguities that I'd like help figuring out. Did Giuseppe stay in America or Canada? Also, can any records be found of Lucia and Saveria? They immigrated to America a bit later than their siblings. Also, could it be checked if the last name of Alfonso's wife Filomena was Morena or Ferretti?

Buon Anno :D Laura and Biff!

Here is a POSSIBLE 1910 US Census for Filomena/Philomena Ferritto in Rhode Island...
Listed here also is a sister MARIE who is about 2 years younger than Filomena. This would agree with the 1925 Census where Marie Ferretti is listed as "bro-in-law" (which probably meant that Alfonso was HER brother-in-law)
For Filomena, the year of birth (about 1907) and place of birth (Rhode Island) appear to be correct.
