Giovanni Caprarelli

Postby James Graham » 27 Apr 2015, 17:30

Giovanni is my great aunt's husband.
He naturalized after World War I and used John as a name.
All we know is that his immediate family returned to Italy to take care of relatives.
We believed he died circa 1940 and is buried in White Plains, NY but nothing definitive.
Also his birth is thought to be ~1895 but that is from records we have found but nothing that links him directly. We do not know if and when he and his wife were married but it is believed they met in the United States.
His wife was Rosalia Mariorenzi, 5 Feb 1899 to 28 Oct 1979.
More than likely he is from the province of Frosinone.

His children are Giuseppe Antonio Caprarelli, 1927-2013, and Vincent "Jimmy" Caprarelli, 1928-2006.

Any help would be appreciated,
Jim

They are probably from Esperia. Both surnames are numerous there. Civil and parish records in Esperia were destroyed in WW2 but if they returned they probably reconstructed their birth and marriage records.

This appears to be a return trip from Italy in 1936 -
Perhaps he went to Italy with family and then returned to US?

They sure look like him. Thank you.
The Union Ave., Providence is surely him. All the family settled in the area of Union Ave.
Monticelli and Esperia are also a good indication.
White Plains is where he is rumoured to be buried, too.

Does it read 30 September 1895 for his birth, on the naturalization record?
