Rosario Cancilla

Postby dlobo74 » 30 Jun 2015, 19:18

Hello, I am still looking for what became of my great great grandmother Rosario Cancilla (sp?) She is listened as living with my great grandparents in 1910 according to the census but when the 1920 census came out she was not living with them. Her daughter was Mary (1887-1965) and Mary married Francesco LoBosco.

I have hit a real road block. Any help would be appreciated!

Wow, I think that is her real name and the 2010 census was wrong. Hmmm. Interesting!

Thanks again. Even with that new last name I am not getting anything else. Where did Rosario go?

Can someone get an image of that 1910 census?
Maybe the "?" before "Ancilla" means an unrecognized letter...

I think the correct spelling is "Cancilla".
Can this be Mary:

I agree with Pippo that, despite the spelling of the surname in Mary's marriage license, that Cancilla is the correct spelling of the surname. I also checked through the Trabia records and don't see the family there. Pippo, I saw those photos on the find a grave website, but I believe the poster submitted that info.

Moreover, the date on the grave is different from date provided by the submitter of data...
I looked in Trabia records, too, but there are so many Cancilla's!

Yes, I posted the Findagrave info so I am not sure how accurate the info is. I have seen Mary's last name as well as her date of birth different. The only thing I have to go on for her info as well as her mother's information is that 1910 census. I wonder why it is so hard to find something on them.

Hmmmm....
