My grandfather name is carmelo mollica, he arrived in new york around 1905. I think he came from sanFratello (although my father always claim he was from reggie calabria) he was spprox 25 when he arrived. he died 10 years later in new york. he death certificate say only that he was in NY for 10 years and that he was 35 it also misspells his name it Mollico. I am at a total dead end. His fathers name was Gussippe and his mother rosa greco according the the death certificate.

Your point # 1 I believe to be my grandfather, because my grandmothers name was rosa and my father was born in 1909 his name was frank. I can't find anything else. I have his death certificate he was killed in 1915.
Yes Terry, me too think that the first is just; in this time I searched for you and no records about immigration... also about the childs: Giuseppina and Michele that sure borns in Italy... also the age is pertaining with your data...is interesting that Salvatore came in USA joining Carmelo; sure is an Carmelo brother, why we know that are only 2 Carmelo Mollica in New York untill 1910..
on census 1910 Carmelo and Rosa was married only from 3 years! rosa had 5 childs, but only 3 living... I think that is possible that married in New York.... moreover I think that Giuseppe and Rosa no came in USA..
suanj, my grandmother was married in italy her name was a. rosa montana she had 3 children with her 1st husband. However I do not know Michele at all my father never mentioned a brother. I also believe that my grandfather and grandmother never married. My grandmother died when my father was 18, my mother was 20 years younger than him
and she do not know much. do have any suggestions? thanks terry

Dear Suanj, You have the right Carmelo born around 1878,And the cenus is right, my father was Frank he was 1 year old at the time. Carmelo never married Ana Rose, but they lived together. He was married when he arrived per ellis island report. All except for my father frank, the other children were not named mollica. And I have never heard of Michael maybe he died. May dad was 5 when his father was shot see link, I have his death certificate but it has no birth date on it.
