Surname Sciaruto, Dintino, from Roccacasale

Postby Patti_B » 27 Feb 2008, 22:17

I have traced my family back to Roccacasale, Italy. Raffaele Sciaruto (b. 12/30/1890) married Vincenza Dintino (b.4/6/1887) in 1913.

Raffaele's parents may have been Andrew Sciaruto and Rose D'ascanio or Dascano or Wescano - can not read the hand writing on Social Security application.

Vincenza's parents were Crescienzo Dintino and Domenica Feccha. Vincenza definately had a brother Frank and I think other brothers too.

They immigrated to Pierce, West Virginia to work in the coal mines. Then they moved to Pleasantville, NY.

Any additional information about the Sciarutos and Dintinos would be very much appreciated. Also, trying to confirm parents names and would like to find information on their ancestors.

Thank you - Patti

Hello Patti and Welcome to Italian Genealogy!!

If this is Raffaele's 1909 manifest, I believe his mother's name was Rosa D'Ascanio. He is listed on line 30.

Page 2

His father's name was likely Andrea.

Raffaele and Vincenza had a son, Andrew or Andrea, born in West Virginia on Aug 12, 1921. Tragically, he passed away on Christmas Eve that year from bronchial pneumonia. Very sad.
