Vigna, Aprigliano

Postby LauraSelf » 02 Jul 2005, 03:52

Searching for any information on the Vigna Family of Aprigliano, Cosenza. Specifically Francesco born c. 1853 (possibly married to a Fortunato Piscitelli). I believe there are sons Giuseppe born c. 1883, possibly an Angelo born c. 1886, and Eugenio born c. 1890. All were either Tailors and/or Shoemakers. Migrated to the USA between 1910-15 settled in the Baltimore MD area. There was also a daughter Ermelinda born January 1881. She married a Giuseppe Greco (may have been a second marriage).

Any information regarding this family would be much appreciated.

What about census records? Have you researched those?

Is this the correct manifest for Francesco?

I have researched Ellis Island. Yes, your information looks correct. I show that Francesco was widowed on this trip with his niece Annunziate Vigna. She traveled to Ontario, Canada to visit brother Giuseppe. Her Nearest Relative was Father Augustino in Vigliaturo. Francesco went to Baltimore, MD USA to visit son Giuseppe.

Son Giuseppe, I have not found records for him other than Census 1920 living in Baltimore, MD USA with Father Francesco (age 68). Census 1930, Giuseppe is still in Baltimore, MD USA, Father Frank not listed, assumed deceased. Giuseppe was naturalized in 1915 in Pennsylavania. He may have also entered there. Do not have access to those records yet.

Thank you for the interest.

I am also interested in learning more about my Vigna ancestry from Aprigliano.

My paternal gr-grandfather was Pietro Vigna (b. 1873, Aprigliano) and he married Teresa Misuraca (whose full name may have been Giulia Maria Teresa Misuraca, b. 13 Jan 1870 - but I'm not sure that the two are one in the same). I'd like to find out who their parents were. One of their sons was my grandfather - Emilio Francesco Vigna, b. 1898 in Mesoraca, Cosenza. Another son was Giovanni Battista, b. 1894, and I know they had brothers Marino and Sal and a sister Giuseppina (Peppina). There were a total of 13 children and I think only 5 (that we know of) emigrated to the USA. Any help is appreciated! Thank you!
