Help with locating siblings

Postby gentilejoy@yahoo.com » 08 Jun 2014, 15:13

Can someone please help to locate Fava siblings of Pentone?
My great grandfather was Tomasso Fava born in Catanzaro around 1855 of Antonio Fava and Lucia Massino. I know per FHL Pentone marriage record #763 that he had a brother Giuseppe Fava born in Pentone 1861 who married Michelina Merante.

I need to know if he had other brothers. Seems Giuseppe Fava traveled to
Niagara Falls per ship manifest on the ship “molke“ 7/2/12. Says he was going to his “brother” ? ==Vincenzo Fava living in Niagara Falls.
This would indicate that my great grandfather Tomasso had another sibling by the name of Vincenzo aside from Giuseppe who settled around Niagara Falls. However, I can not find any records to link these brothers or additional brothers in that area. I do not know when Vincenzo was born. All these siblings would’ve had father and mother listed as “Antonio Fava” and “Lucia Massino” -Pentone, Calabria.
Possible additional siblings of Tomasso Fava would be Bernardo, Luca, Vincenzo, Giuseppe. I do know that there was and is a thriving Pentonese Community that settled around Niagara Falls and Toronto.

Thank you for helping to locate any additional siblings linked to Tomasso Fava son of Antonio Fava and Lucia Massino.

The Vincenzo Fava, married at (Antoniuzza) Antonietta Capicotto, that went in USA ( to see the arrival records in my previous post), it is the right Vincenzo, brother of Tommaso and Giuseppe, because after married at Antonia Solferino, she died and he- widow- remarried at Antonietta Capicotto here the marriage bann: Pentone 26 Dec 1888 #14

Oh my gosh-thank you!
I was about to post a reply when I saw additional records you found on Vincenzo Fava. Yes, yes -this confirms he was Tomasso's and Giuseppe's brother.
Tomasso married Santa Lorenzo ==my great grandparents.
Tomasso's brother Giuseppe Fava married Michelina Merante according to marriage record #763 in 1886.
Tomasso's other brother Vincenzo (thank you suanj for finding this record!) was married to Antonia Solferino who died. Vincenzo Fava remarried Antonia Capicotto.
This solves the search since seems Vincenzo was living in Niagara Falls when Giuseppe arrived. Also I was able to connect with the current Pentonese Community of Toronto-there was mention of a Vincenzo Fava whose wife was Antonia Capicotto. All indication they went back to Pentone, but today some of their descendents (grandchildren) live in the Toronto area which has a large Pentonese Community outside of Pentone itself.

Thank you again for finding that link!
