Looking for info on Angelo Bevilacqua/Grotte Sicily

Postby bevilacqua » 21 Oct 2007, 21:18

I am looking for information on my grand father Angelo - his last known residence was Grotte Sicily. I believe that he came through Ellis Island on Nov 6, 1911. Thanks for any help that I can get!!

Hi,

I'm not finding 1920 census for Angelo, but if the arrival manifest posted by VJ is correct, I found Angelo's brother Gerlando arrival in 1905, 1930 and 1920 censuses and WWI Draft Card:

1905 Arrival for Gerlando:

1920 Census: (it's really illegible.... I choose this size so you can see well the names...) they were living in Sycamore Street (same address for the WWI Draft card for Angelo, VJ posted) I searched the 1920 census for Sycamore Street to search Angelo and his family but it's impossible to read......

1930 Census for Gerlando:

Saluti!

Edit to: PS: Angelo's wife name for me is Salvatrice.....

Here is the 1914 arrival manifest for Alfonsa Mendola / Lamendola, mother of Angelo Bevilacqua.

She's travelling with her daughters: Bevilacqua Vincenza (age 14) and Giuseppa (age 10), they are going to meet the son/brother Angelo Bevilacqua living in Buffalo, 367 Carlton Street.

Page 1: line 28/29/30

Page 2:
[img=http://img86.imageshack.us/img86/4828/mendolaalfonsa1914arrivdl9.th.gif]

Alfonsa was coming from Grotte and leaving in Italy her sister Maria Lamendola. So the last name of Alfonsa was mispelled....

Thanks to both of you for all of the replies - i may be wrong that the Angelo Bevilacqua that came through Ellis Island on Nov 6, 1911 is my grandfather. I can find him on the 1920 census in Michigan-Iron County - Stambaugh Township and 2 of my dad's sister are born. I am planning on going up to Michigan this week to see if any of my dad's brothers or sisters know when Angelo came over. I was very excited to find the Ellis Island manifest - but now may have to start that search over again. Thanks again for all the replies that I got.

Not to worry!

For reference:

In Dickinson County?

Is this the correct Bevilacqua family
with father-in-law Tomasi?

Cheri, vj and Laura,

I'm starting to follow this a little late but I do have a few questions. For Cheri.

Can you give us your grandfathers full name and date of birth (including the year) and also all of his brother's and sisters full names including married names and the approximate year they were born and if born in Italy or USA?

Can you give us Angelo's fathers name and his mothers full name (maiden)? Approximate years of birth if possible too.

Regards,
elizabeth

Hi guys :D !
That census certainly was one of
the cutest I've found, couldn't
resist posting it.
Elizabeth, I think the 1920 census may
match the one Cheri already has?

btw - the more you post the sooner you
get to be a 'Master' :wink:
