The most likely spelling of the name is LOGUERCIO.

Hi Jeri

I did a look up of the manifests for Gerard and Bartomelo Paradiso and noticed that here is another brother named Vincenzo and a sister named Chiara. Also mentioned is their mother Carolina (didn't give her surname) You didn't mention them so I didn't know if you were aware of them (as far as siblings go) or not.

Hope this info is useful.

Elizabeth,
Thank You for the post..
I don't think that is the same PARADISO family..
What I know about Gerard and Bartomelo ( or Bartholamew) is very little..
Parents both died in 1885 when Gerard was 5yrs and sister Ciarinna (who ma. Erasmus NATUZZI) took them in after being shifted from family to family.
Parents of Gerard
Father-Erasmus(Mason/bricklayer)His Father-Bartholamew
Mother-Maria Concetta (MARASCO) her Father- Gerard

Truly I can not trust any of the info I have gotten from my Father and his siblings most of whom are still living..My G-parents , I guess did not speak much of their family or else their children were not listening if they did..
I regret not having had the willingness to speak to my Grandmother (Gerards wife) she lived to be 102 and had the mind of a young woman all that time!

Anyway..does this info match anything you might have..
And when you say manifests , is that for the ship?? I think he came in on the ship Regina D'Italia 9/1907 from the Port of Naples. I am such a newbie at this but have been searching the internet for 15yrs! It has only been reciently that I have found some things..
TY again asd looking forward to hearing more from you..

Thank you wldspirit..I have had a time of it trying to get the spelling for YEARS!!
no one in the family..least of all my G-Mother who was not able to read or write..
So the many variations of LOGUERCIO were
LOQU
LOGU
LOZU
and LOVU
That is why I was so thrilled that after 50 yrs I could actually get another person w/ the spelling..
The internet is a wonderful thing..and getting better all the time for those of us who search!
