Family Fuligni in New York

Postby wishyou » 03 Dec 2007, 22:28

I recently had few letters wrote by an Italian soldier which was with the US army in France during WWI.
He was Benedict (Benedetto) Fuligni and he wrote to his father Ferdinando in New York.
The letters are written in italian, in a good italian and with a nice calligraphy.
Benedetto tells that he has done some portraits to officers and he thought to do this work back in New York.
He had a brother, Ercole, and at least two sisters, Iris and America.
By information in the letters the family could had origin in centre Italy, as a uncle died in Hospital in Rome.

Nothing found in Ellis Island, neither Benedetto or Ferdinando.
Could someone help me to find more informations about this man?

Biff, everyone on the manifest was born in Velletri
(Rome)?
Note: destination (as Biff previously stated)
was 322 East 114th Street, joining husband/father
Ferdinando Fuligni.
Same address as Benedetto’s manifest.
(but he was joining his uncle)
