Surname: Sesto

Postby mla1205 » 15 May 2008, 17:04

I am looking for information on ym great-great-grandparents.

My great-great-grandfather's name was Antonio Sesto. He married a woman (I think her name may have been Catherine), in Italy, and they had 4 children. I know the son was Albert, and I think one of the daughters may have been Lena and possibly a Giuseppina. When Antonio wanted to come to America, his wife did not want to come. So, he came over with her sister Mary, and they had 3 children in America.

I think Antonio and Mary came over in 1902.I am looking for possibly a marriage certificate so that I can find her maiden name, and birth certificates on both of them. He was born in 1869. She was supposidly born in 1872, but according to her grave marker, she may have been born in 1882.

Can anyone help?

Have you pulled any U.S. documentation? Did they naturalize? Can you provide the names of the three children born to Mary and the birthyears? In which U.S. state did they reside?

This is Anthony Sesto 1910 census, maybe it can be useful to understand al least the rights arrival's years....

The address Dante Alley Webstore Avenue matches with some of the arrival manifest for Tony's child....

So, it's possible that Albert and Josephine were child of the "first" wife in Italy and Victoria, Fredie, Earnest and Emma were Mary's child....
Even if she declared she gave birth to 6 child.... :?

I do not know if Antonio Sesto was naturalized. There is nothing on Footnote.com. I did try to pull his death record, but there was none. I know he died in 1926 or 1927, and story has it that he was hit by a street car, so I am going to comb the old papers to try and find an obituary.

I know he immigrated in June, 1902. His passenger list says he is from San Biase. Is anyone familiar with contacting San Biase? Not sure who to write to for a birth or christening record.

His children with Mary are Alfred Sesto, Ernest Sesto and Emma Sesto. Everyone resided in Pittsburgh, PA.
