Filamena or Philamena born 11 January 1863

Postby AnnmarieClark » 18 Apr 2015, 14:30

The only information I have on my great-grandmother is that she was born in Italy and that she died 29 January 1912. In the obituary it states that she was 48 years and 18 days at time of death which is how I came to the conclusion that she was born 11 January 1863.

On her marriage record, her maiden name was listed as Appleton but I don't think that was her true maiden name (I heard that she was adopted by them) when she arrived from Italy to Brooklyn - I did find her on the 1881 US Census as Appleton.

Is there a way I can try to locate her true identity by finding her birth record? Also, her middle name may have been Josephine.

I would appreciate all the ideas, suggestions and help that I can get!!

Thanks.
Annmarie

Thanks so much for your responses.

Her name on the census was Philomena Appleton and she was unmarried. She married a Bermudian and was married here in Bermuda. I am not sure how they even met.

Suanj - that original e-mail was from me!!!
