I am looking for the Ellis Island emigration of Calogero Cicala around 1899. He would be around 40 years old (born in 1860) from the home town of Sciacca, Sicilia and going to Norristown, PA. His cousin or brother Accursio Cicala is already living in Norristown in 1899. I believe Calogero is traveling alone because his wife and kids come in 1900.
Hope you will get this, since the original post was several years ago. Calogero Cicala was my maternial great grandfather. He was married to Angela Barone, and yes he did come alone at first and then went back for his family. Their children were Anna Saladino (my grandmother), Maria Di Carlo, Jovanna Maltesa (Jenny), Josephine Cusumano, Paul Cicala, Joseph Cicala and Calogero Cicala (died from whooping cough as a child) He lived in Norristown for the remainder of his life. I'm sorry but I do not know any of his other family members. My mother and her siblings are all deceased so I have no one to ask.
Just saw this (2 years later).... Yes, Calogero was son of Giuseppe Cicala (1814) and Ana Santangelo - married in 1847. Giuseppe was brother to my Benedetto Cicala (1811). Their parents were Antonino Cicala and Giovanna Iacono. Looks like Antonino might have died prematurly (1814-1820) as I have not found other chirldren and the death of Antonino from 1820+. Need to get Antonino and Giovana's wedding record around 1809 in Sciacca and/or his death record in the Parrocchia San Michele Arcangelo in Sciacca.
It seems we are related.... my grandmother was Josephine Cicala, married Calogero Cusumano (my pateranl grandfather). They had children; Joseph, Mary, Alfonso, Paul, Charles, Angela, and Victoria. I knew some of the Cicala side... My grandmother's sister (Aunt) Jenny, and I knew the Saladino and DiCarlo Cousins, though it has been many years! This is great information as we are putting together a family tree.
