Searching For a Possible Marriage For Angelo Franconeri of New York and Florida

Postby siskojnash » 21 Jul 2015, 04:39

Angelo Franconeri was born on August 28, 1916 in Brooklyn, I think. He died on January 30, 2003 in Spring Hill, Florida. His parents were Luigi Franconeri and Giuseppina Grano. His sisters were Michelina, Angelina, and Rose. His brothers were Alfred, Frank, and John.
His wife was Concetta D'Errico, who lived from 1916 to 1993. Funny enough, I came across another female connection for Angelo, to a Lillian O'Brien. I found one who was born abt 1918 and died in 2009. I don't know if that's the correct person. I tried to look through my notes to figure out how I came across the proof of this connection and couldn't find anything. Recently, his daughter was contacted by a half-sister through this connection, so there really was a connection between Angelo Franconeri and Lillian O'Brien. I suspect now that my birth and death dates for Lillian above may be wrong, because Angelo and Concetta had their first child in 1942. Supposedly, this relationship between Angelo and Lillian happened before he was with Concetta.
Could someone please help me to find documents supporting the connection between Lillian and Angelo? I would particularly like to find out whether or not they were ever married. Thank you so much for your time.

There was at least one daughter, Joan Sulano, who was born in September 1936. We think she may have been born in Brooklyn, but aren't sure. Joan's maiden name was Franconeri, though.

Thank you! That's sure a surprise. Is there any way to be sure that this is the same Angelo Franconeri? It doesn't mean anything, but in the 1940 census, he was living with his mom and family and was listed as single. Of course, that same census listed one child as age 7 when he was actually 1. It would be something if this is the same Angelo, since his daughter was born from another woman about 2 1/2 months after the marriage date.
I got a copy of the birth certificate for Joan Lillian Franconeri. She was born in Brooklyn in August 1936. The names of the parents given are Angelo Franconeri and Lillian Reisner. I was told that Reisner is actually a married name. Someone, probably Joan herself, tried to do a search for a birth certificate around about the time she turned 20. The father's name was listed as Vincent Clinton, who seems to have been the father she knew, since she gave her name with the name Clinton. It came up as a failed search. Is there anything that can be found out about Lillian O'Brien with this information? I was told that O'Brien is the actual maiden name, although Joan went by the name Reisner because of her brother.

I am inclined to think that the Angelo who married Teresa is not the correct one. On family search, there is another Angelo Franconeri who was born on June 14, 1913 and died Nov 4, 1937. On the 1940 census, he is found living in NJ with wife Theresa. If you look at the census, it shows that she was born in Italy and had lived in Brooklyn, NY. So I think on the 1940 census, it could be the couple who married in Bklyn in 1936 and not your Angelo. You would need a copy of the marriage record though, with his parents' names hopefully, to eliminate the 1936 marriage as his.

Great find, suanj! :-)

The address on the census for Lillian Clinton is in the same neighborhood as the address for the Franconeri family in Brooklyn, only several blocks away.

Thank you! I think there were censuses for Lillian O'Brien before 1940, but I don't have a subscription to be able to get those documents. Could those ones be the same woman? And could they have been also living in the same neighborhood?

Hi, here the Irving Reisner marriage record:
Reisner Irving Nov 4 1936 19625 (1936) Kings 1684985 Wetteland, Helen
I believe that Lillian don't was married, almost until 1937.. on line, the marriage records arriving just until 1937..

important and wonderful detail!
So Lillian senior married at.. Reisner, had 2 children, Irving and Lillian, and then married at James O'Brien.. it is correct... seeming the right family... I don't understand why I cannot find Lillian Reisner marriage record... no by Reisner maiden name, no by O'Brien maiden name...
