DeLillo/a

Postby jmd1181 » 03 Mar 2006, 22:40

hello,
i am wondering if anyone has any information or links to information on a Anthony DeLillo. He came to NYC in the early 1900's and changed his name to DeLilla. I have had trouble locating information on him, particularly because of the name change. He was married in NYC to a Loise Adamo. These are my great-grandparents.

Hi,

I found an interesting 1920 census for a Tony

1920 United States Federal Census Recordinfo
about Tony De Lillo

Married a Louisa, 32 yrs old and lived on the same street as several Adamo's..can't really read the name of the street. Could be Conslrya Street...need other opinions, though. Louisa came in 1904 and she and Tony were both alien status in 1920. Tony was a bricklayer Contractor in Kings New York.

Children are: Angeline,13 years old, James, 10, Pasty, 8, Joseph, 5, and Matilda 2.

Hope this helps.

Are you looking to trace family here in US or Italy?
Have you located a ship manifest or identified the town of origin?

Sorry to take so long to respond to your pm.... :oops:
after reading the thread, can you first confirm the info found so far, if this info is in fact correct or incorrect??

I know this was posted a couple of years ago, so I'm hoping that the original poster still has an active account. I think I may be related to you. I have never met any of my family on my father's side, which would be the DeLilla side. But he had a grandfather named Antonio Nicolo DeLillo who changed his last name to DeLilla shortly after coming here from Italy. My dad knows alot about the family and I'm sure would be willing to share what he knows. His name is Daniel and he is the son of Pasquale (Pat) DeLilla, who would in turn be the son of Antonio. This would make me their great-grandchild as well. My name is Juliann. Feel free to reply!!
