Spina Family of Napoli, Italy

Postby liveweyer » 20 May 2007, 16:50

I am looking for information on Vincent Spina and his wife Irene Ramagli. Thier son Emilio Spina is my great grandfather, he was born June 9, 1871. He came to America and married Mary Eliza Guensch on June 3, 1865. The had at least one child, Irene Alepia Spina ( my grandmother) and they tool her back to Italy when she was very young, returning to the US when she was about 14. Any information would be greatly appreciated.

yes, this is my family. I have the following record for naturalization:

New York Petitions for Naturalization
about Emilio Spina
Name: Emilio Spina
Naturalization Date: 5 Jul 1893
Former Nationality: King of Italy
Birth Date: 9 Jun 1871
Arrival Port: New York
Arrival Date: Aug 1885
Title and Location of Court: Superior Court, New York County
Volume: 549
Record Number: 173

Also this record of date of immigration:
Name: Emilio Spina
Arrival Date: 3 Oct 1895
Estimated birth year: abt 1871
Age: 24
Gender: Male
Port of Departure: Naples, Italy
Ethnicity/Race/Nationality: Italian
Ship Name: Alsatia
Search Ship Database: Search the Alsatia in the 'Passenger Ships and Images' database

Port of Arrival: New York, New York

I also have census records for Erene Spina wife of Vincent. She is the same age as Irene, both are widowed and immigrated in the same year. I have the census record that you have as well as another for the same year in New York for Erene. This is possible depending on the dates they took the census and if she moved in with Emilio before the census was taken in Philadelphia. Wether they are the same person, I have no Idea.
Thank You for your help.
