Baldini Family from Rome, Italy to Brooklyn, NY

Postby bdecraene » 19 Feb 2007, 03:52

I am researching my great-grandfather, Paul Baldini. According to his naturalization paper he was born in Rome on June 17, 1875. He came to NY in March, 1885 & date of naturalization was 8/2/1900. He married Mary Esposito in 1896 & lived in Brooklyn on Union Street. He was a fruit dealer. He died 5/17/1930. I believe his parents were Ludivico (Ludwig) Baldini & Teresa Terenzi or Teranci. I know he had a brother named Romeo. I cannot find him in the 1900 census & have no info on his parents (not even sure if they came to U.S.) Unable to locate what ship he arrived on. Does anyone know what port he may have left from & are there any Italian records of this info? Any suggestions on researching Baldini name in Rome circa 1870's?
Appreciate any help that can be provided!
Thank-you!

A few lines below the listing for Eugene and family is one for Teresa Esposito, and daughters Nellie and Fortunata, likely Marie Esposito Baldini's mother.

Good eye, Biff! I saw this too but didn't make the connection. It does say she is a widow.

It wasn't until I read the info on the Alesandro Esposito/Teresa Ferraro query that I made the connection.

vj's posted ship manifest for Paolo Baldini raises the question why his listing following Maria Terenzio, figlio Raffaele, doesn't have a ditto mark and then his first name to signify he's another son.

:D Wow! Lots of info here. Thanks so much to everyone. Some of this info I already have. The Eugene & family (& on the same street Teresa Esposito) are indeed my great-grandmothers family.
The most interesting info to me is the ship log of Paolo Baldini- age 13. Very strong possibility this is my great-grandfather (especially travelling with a Teresa Terenzio)! Thanks again!
