Looking for Meli surnames Caccamo, Sicily

Postby jjr5_1 » 29 Aug 2005, 21:41

Hi, I am looking for informaiton anout the Meli's in Caccamo, Sicily. My Great Great Grandparents were born there. They came to America in 1904 and settled in Jefferson County, Texas. They americanized names are Joseph and Josephine Malley. I am assuming Italian names are Guiseppe Meli. Guseppia (female version?) was an Ippilita(o). If anyone can help, I would appreciate it! Thanks! :D

Hi There,

Here is your family in the 1920 Census. I know someone in the group will be kind enough to post it for you. (Thank you :) )

Name: Joe Mally
Age: 27 years
Estimated birth year: abt 1893
Birthplace: Italy
Home in 1920: Beaumont, Jefferson, Texas
Image: 687
Image Source: Year: 1920; Census Place: Beaumont, Jefferson, Texas; Roll: T625_1823; Page: 10B; Enumeration District: 98; Image: 687.

Here is the 1930 information

Name: Joseph Malley
Age: 44
Estimated birth year: abt 1886
Birthplace: Italy
Relation to head-of-house: Head

Image source: Year: 1930; Census Place: Beaumont, Jefferson, Texas; Roll: 2362; Page: 5B; Enumeration District: 31; Image: 140.0.


This could be death information on Josephine

And the Family History Center has microfilm that you can order and rent for the town of Caccamo, so you can do look up your ancestors' Birth, Marriage, and Death information.

Here are the film numbers.

Hi Jennifer, as you say in another posting, your ancestor are as Joe Male in 1910 census, born in 1883 and emigrated in 1904, so around 21 old, and in 1910 was already married at Josephine( Giuseppina) and are Samuel son,... also i read( hoping well) that was married from 7 years, so in 1903, and this means that when emigrated was already married ...:
Name: Joe Male
Age in 1910: 27
Estimated birth year: abt 1883
Home in 1910: 2-Wd Beaumont, Jefferson, Texas

I hope better help and to find in next days .. many regards, suanj

Hi Mfjp,

Thank you for posting the census information for me.

Also, if you look at the census, it's the same family. I just think they (the transcriber and/of census taker) made a mistake with the age.

I realize that this thread is 7 years old at this point, but I've just stumbled across it and wonder if anyone ever looks it over from time to time. My name is Dana Betsill, maiden name Held, and my paternal grandmother was Josephine Marie Meli, daughter to Joseph and Joephine Meli from Caccamo Sicily. I know virtually nothing about her family other than coming from Sicily on a boat that came into port at New Orleans on Valentines day and then heading to Texas before moving up north. Could we be related? Have you learned anything new?
