Denphon Garofalo

Postby corrado » 20 Sep 2014, 23:52

Hello there, I need some help with Denphon. It appears he was born 2/7/1899 and died 9/68. He says he immigrated in 1913 on a census, so at 14. Did he come by himself. Hey has anybody knoticed they messed up ellis island records? Where are they? I found an naturalation card in 1935.

Any idea where he came from? or any other info. Thank you.

He is not listed in current ellisisland records which indicates he entered the usa at some other port and not NYC or his first name Denphon was altered. I did come across the only entry that seems plausible for entry of DOMENICO Garofalo, entry 1912 since this was the ONLY entry closest to 1913 and war was brewing in Europe. I sent out request for more info and when I get it I will get back to you if no one else can finger him. Peter

Everything is in Chicago...Can you call the local FHLibrary (Mormon) and see if they can bring up his naturalization papers since he is listed for 1935 citizenship. If and when I get a reply to my inquiry I will get back to you. Peter

Here is the POSSIBLE arrival manifest for your Denphon Garofalo... :-)

Transcribed as Dunfoate Garofalo (the first name is written over on the manifest so it is hard to read)
Arriving NY in May 1915 --- traveling alone by all appearances.
He is age 16, and a tailor. (I noticed that your Denphon is listed as tailor on the 1930 Census, as well)
He leaves his mother, Pasqualina Conte in Ausonia.
Going to Oak Park, Illinois to his father, Angelo Garofalo (Denphon's first son is named Angelo on the 1930 Census) :-)
A notation of naturalization is on the manifest with a date of 1934.
