Drago - Genoa, Genova Italy

Postby kelley63 » 11 Nov 2006, 09:08

I am looking for my 4th g- grandfather Antonio Drago...all the info i have on him is, He was born in Genoa, Genova Italy, and had a daughter named Mary Louisa Drago. Married James Walter Deen in Louisana. She was born in Louisana in 1823.
I would like to know who Antonio's parents were and when he came to the states...
If anyone can help me I would appreciate it so very much.

Have you tried to send for this record? May list parents names. It appears that there could be more than one marriage record for this person.

Sorry to be soooo long getting back in touch with you guys on here..been gone awhile for a family emergency...
Thank you so very much for the info on Antonio...This is all the information I have on him, what you have given me...
This looks to be the person I'm looking for...I don't have any idea how to go about finding any info in Italy on him, such as parents name..I have not tried to send for his marriage receord, as I didn't know the spouses name...and when I called them, they did tell me I needed at least that much.
All of the help you have given me is sooo appreciated...And would love any other directions or help you can send me...I seem lost...lol

Although I found Drago's in Ouachita Co on the 1860 & 1870, I didn't find Antonio. If you haven't obtained his death record & birth records for his children, if available, you may want to do so.

Hope this helps.
