baby died at sea, any record of this?

I finaly found the birth records of Pasquale Corrado born May 1891 in Nocera Superiore. The family came to chicago, first the father in June 1891 (strange I think leaving 8 month pregrent wife) but at any rate the baby is no here when they get here. Family lore is the baby died at sea, which I have no reason to doubt. If you die at sea is there any record of this?

Do you have the mother's arrival?

If child boarded with the mother, he should be on the manifest. There might even be a notation that he was in the hospital on board. I have also seen notations of death on board next to a passenger's name.

What is the mother's name/maiden name?

Another thought... you might want to check the Parte II of death records in the Comune. The child's death may have been recorded there if they were notified. :-)
