Mistretta, Alesi,Maggio

Postby dbar789 » 12 Jan 2014, 16:08

Looking for any info on my grandparents families? My grandmother Anna (Mistretta) Alesi , came from Menfi. My grandfather Leonard Maggio came from Santa Margherita Belice. They settled in Kings, NY. Have 2 children, Anthony and Nina Maggio. My grandmothers parents were Margherita and Joseph Mistretta, they had a large family, around 10 children. I think they were born around 1865. Any info would help, Thank you, Donna

I don't believe this is the correct birth record for Leonardo, as the family is on an earlier passenger list traveling with the father whose name is Diego Maggio. Their destination was to his brother Calogero Maggio in Brooklyn.

First Name: Diego
Last Name: Maggio
Ethnicity: Italy, Italian
Last Place of Residence: S. Margherita
Date of Arrival: Nov 26, 1898
Age at Arrival: 34y Gender: M Marital Status: M
Ship of Travel: Spartan Prince
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0006

http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 3261010866

The Maggio surname is very common in the town of Santa Margherita di Belice, as even I have Maggio ancestors from this town.

A few things-
1. The earlier passenger list I found does not appear to be for the same people as the ones on the 1913 manifest. If the sex of the child Rosaria on the 1913 passenger list is correct, I see that the child on the other passenger list is Rosario, a male. So Diego would not be the correct father of the Leonardo and Rosaria on the 1913 passenger list.

2. I did, however, find a 1920 census record for a family in Brooklyn NY living at 146 Evergreen Ave. ED 1186, sheet 9B. I am not sure if this is the correct family, but the ages are definitely close and the dates of immigration for the wife and two children are given as 1913. The father's name on this census record is given as Anthony, which would coincide with the first name of Leonardo's son. Anthony's wife's name is written as Lena, but this was a common nickname for women with the Antonia first name. Have a few in my ancestry for which this is the case. The father Anthony's immigration year is 1914, but I can't find him on a passenger list to confirm if this is the right family.

I still believe that getting the NYC marriage record for Leonardo would be the way to confirm his parents' names.

I also tried searching the SM birth records for the daughter Rosaria's record. She should only be two or three years younger than Leonardo. I searched 1894 to 1899 to see if I could find a Rosaria with the same parents as the ones in the birth record for the Leonardo you found, but I don't see her birth record in the years I searched.

I believe these are the correct records, as I see on Leonard's WWII draft registration card. His birthday is given as May 1, 1894 and his middle name is given as Lasala on the record.

I am going back and forth on this. The only marriage record I found for an Antonia La Sala to a Maggio between the years 1890 and 1895 was a Nov 19, 1892 marriage to Diego Maggio. He was the son of deceased Leonardo Maggio and Rosaria Ardizzone. She was the daughter of Leonardo Lasala and Rosolia Marchese. So now I am thinking that the two passenger lists do match and there may be an error as to the sex of the Rosario on the first passenger list.

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1487190104

I still don't know what to make of the father's name of Antonio being on Leonardo's birth record.


The Antonino Maggio married to a Lucia Giambalvo. His father was a Francesco Maggio and his mother a Maria Morello. Her father was a Vito and her mother Maria.

I think the best way is to get the marriage info like you said from NYC to see if their parents are listed...........Great teamwork!!

Hi Marty,
Hopefully, Santa Margherita di Belice is the right town, but I'm really not sure at this point. I'm hoping the NYC marriage info will have that info or, at the very least, the parents' names. Unfortunately, there is no extracted info from the 1926 marriage record on familysearch, which was something else I was hoping for.

The towns of Menfi and Santa Margherita de Belice are very close to one another. In fact, my mother's mother was from Menfi and her father from S. Margherita but they met and married in Brooklyn, as well. The surnames Lasala and Maggio are very common in both towns, and I have ancestors with both surnames from Santa Margherita de Belice, but no connection to anyone in the records we found so far. My mother's paternal grandmother was a Maggio and her mother was a Lasala or LaSala.

Anyway, I agree that we can't do anything else with this until we know the parents' names for sure, but I found the birth record for Rosaria, the daughter of Diego Maggio and Antonia Lasala. She was born on Dec 9, 1896

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... 1841554126.

Just as a sidenote, I found that there was a Leonard Charles Maggio born in Santa Margherita di Belice on July 9, 1886 who was living at 146 Evergreen Avenue in Brooklyn at the time of the WWI draft registration-July 7, 1917. (this is the same address on the 1920 census record I had found and mentioned in one of my posts above). He had his mother, wife, and child to support, according to that record. I found that his father was a Calogero (Charles) and his mother an Anna Sciacchitano (his birth record was image 1215 of 3056 on familysearch). By the time of the WWII draft registration, he was living in Houston, Texas. No mention of any family on that record. He would not be the correct Leonard, as far as I can tell, but obviously there must have been quite a few families from Santa Margherita residing at the same address, and possibly they were related to each other.
