Costanzo, Saverio dead end

Postby cwildschuetz » 19 Aug 2014, 22:42

Hello!

Here is what I know for sure:

Saverio Frank Costanzo
Born; August 22 or 23, 1884
Died: November 1967
Father: Saverio Costanzo
Mother: Mary Cafiero
Married to Mary Lauro in Brooklyn NY

Born in italy...according to the SS Application the city is Mata, however his daughter many years ago wrote that he was from Sorrento.

Entered US in 1888 according to the 1930 census.


I am searching for the following information on Saverio Costanzo:

1. How and when this individual arrived in the US -- I have searched Ellis Island and come up empty. I heard there is possibly another place through Canada that he may have arrived, but had no luck searching that database (cant remember the name).

2. Confirm where he is from and secure a birth certificate --

3. What happened to his father as he did not join them in US

I think those are my big questions today! I know he was on the 1900 or 1910 census however I stopped my Ancestry.com membership and lost them (was in tears that I failed to print it!!) On this particular census his mother, sister and brother-in-law lived with him and ran a grocery. The same grocery store he lived above until he died in 1967 which is pretty cool!

Thank you so much!
Cathy

Matonti is a suburb of Laureana Cilento in the Campania region and Limatola is a Comune (town with records)is the only otgher town with Mato as part of the name. There is no MATO in Italy and since Sorrento is the only other indication which is also located in Campania region is the area you should concentrate to locate the full name of the town of origin for Saverio Costanzo. There are 21 Saverio Costanzo who entered the USA at NYC at Ellis Island.org and none appear to have MATO as part of their town of origin name. So I would suggest you go thru whatever papers exist for Saverio and or photos which may have the photographers name and place listed or some family oral history may furnish more information. Its difficult because in Campania there are 93 COSTANZO surnamed persons at this time just in the Campania region spread over several towns.

I think possibility a typo and they came from Meta di Sorrento a town in the Province of Naples in the Italian region Campania, located about 25 km southeast of Naples.
