In search of Gerardo Colozzi

Postby JamesM » 15 Apr 2016, 18:04

I have been trying to trace Gerardo (Jerry).
He married a Cristina Giacomobuoni(o) in New York, NY in 1901

She passed in April 1930 in Rhode Island and he seems to disappear.

I've tried Gerardo and Jerry. Colozzi, Colozzo and Colozza but not much information.
If I were to believe he is the son of Giovanni and Celesta Cerrito but I can't nail it down.

Anyone with ideas?
Thanks

According to the 1930 US Census for Cristina Colozzi...
She was a resident of the State Infirmary in Cranston, RI
The date of the census was 7 April.
She was listed as age 67 and a widow.

You probably could not find Gerardo because he died prior to 1930.

Thanks for the clues.

I found Cristina, also, in the 1925 State Census in the same infirmary. But there is no mention if she is married or widowed.
They are in Barrington, RI in 1915 per the State Census

I also found a Gerardo Colozzi who naturalized but was born in 1872.
Might be him but the 1910 and 1915 Census lists the Gerardo I'm looking for as an alien still.

If I can find them in the 1920 Census, it might narrow it down.

Yes that is the one I saw. I listed 1872 by mistake.

It sure seems like him. But the Gerardo who is in the 10 and 15 census is listed as an alien. The search continues....

Thanks suanj,

That states he is naturalized.
I could not find this one cause the names were reversed. I would never have figured that
