Antonio Guarrera-Riposto, Sicily

Postby jasalva » 04 Jan 2014, 01:03

Antonio Guarrera came to the USA sometime before 1913. He returned to Riposto to acquire the wife promised to him in childhood. It was an arranged marriage, arranged by friends, their parents. Antonio and Rosaria came to USA (New York) in 1913. He died in USA around 1917-18. They were both from Riposto. Rosaria's parents later came to USA, her father's name was Lorenzo and her mother's name was Lucia Patane. I would love to get more information on the family and would love to know if there is an extended family still in Sicily. Rosaria's entire family came to USA with their parents when they came but there must be someone who is connected still in Italy. They were Roman Catholic. I believer her father, Lorenzo, was a cooper and her grandfather, Lorenzo was somekind of a captain (sea). I know nothing about the Guarrera family except that they came from Riposo.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Hello,
I just came upon the information that you listed on the above relative. Thank you for your help. I especially thank you for the marriage information listing the maiden name of Antonio's mother. It helped me confirm the accuracy of a death certificate.
Thank you, again.
