Looking for Orlando Family

Postby StellasGrandaughter » 20 Jan 2014, 21:10

Greetings! I am looking for any information I can find for my Great Grandfather's Family.

His name was Pasquale Orlando, and he went by "Charles" when he immigrated. He married Philomena Bokeno, in Butler County, Ohio. Here are the dates I have as of now. Pretty sure they are accurate.

Pasquale Orlando born 26 Aug 1885 in Messina, Sicilia, Italy (location is not confirmed but we are fairly sure, some of the family were born in Nicastro, Bella, Cantenzero)
Immigrated to United States in 1904, on the Palatia.
He married Philomena Marie Bokeno in May of 1924.
He died in Hamilton, Butler, Ohio on 27 Feb 1967.
Their children include my grandmother, Stella, and her siblings, Michelina, and Anthony.

I have the names of his parents as Antonio Orlando (born sometime before 1850) and Stella Gaetonio or Gaetano. I would love to have these names confirmed and go even further back.

Another relative that may help in the search is my great uncle, Anthony Orlando Villella, who was the son of Pasquale's sister, Stella Caterina Orlando. He also immigrated to the Hamilton, Ohio area, with original immigration date being 1906 (as stated in his obituary) My uncle actually still lives in the house he owned in Hamilton.

Thank you for any help you can give. Glad to have found this website :D

AWESOME help! Thank you all so much! I have been in contact with my great uncle as well, and he has confirmed that Pasquale's father was born in Nicastro Bella. He does not have a birthdate for him, or his wife's last name. We just know that its Stella.
The Draft card especially is something that I had not found before, so that is a great addition to my search! I am slowly getting to the goal!
Thank you all again so very much!
