Looking for Falbos in Michigan

Postby ldineen » 26 Jan 2008, 20:38

I am looking for Falbos from Michigan. My grandmother remembers her dad's cousin Jim Falbo who came from Caccuri, Italy, and lived in Boomer, WV, left for the Detroit, MI area. He had a daughter named Elizabeth. If Elizabeth is still alive she would probably be in her 90's. Just wondering if anyone might know them.

Thanks

That is him, and he did have a brother Gennaro! Thank you so much. Did you find the manifest from Ellis Island's website?

My grandmother came from Caccuri in 1913 at about 16 years of age. She had a brother named Jim and they did go to WV for a time. Her name was Rosalia and she moved to Washington PA. Her husband was Gaspero Milie, also form Caccuri.
My mother's name is Elizabeth and she had a cousin named Elizabeth in Detroit whom she visited as a child. Sarah was the name of her aunt, so it seems that these might be the same family.
I have pictures of Rosalia's parents in Italy, but do not know their names. Her sister is in the photo as well.
My mother is 89 years old, but still living. She is the last of her siblings still alive.
Hope to share info.
