I have found an old Manifest listing for my Great Grandfather and I'm unable to read the last town that he resided in before he left! Below is the link of the document. The town that I am trying to figure out in listed on line Numer 17. If anyone can figure it out, please let me know!!! Thanks!!!
My Grandfather is actually Felice which is listed right below Pasquale, but the name of the city they were from was listed on Pasquale's line. They maybe brother, seems that they were traveling together!
I checked the Census' from 1910 through 1930 which I have, but unfortunately it only states that he is from Italy.
His wife actually came over later than he did and I just used this site to try to figure out the handwriting on the passenger list. I'm not sure if Felice was from the same place as Filomena, but it seems like they were married over in Italy, so it's possible. Here is her passenger list as Filomena Tansillo which is on lines 22 along with her two children Teresa and Aniello
I think listed under "country" is Caserta. The province of Caserta is in the Campania region of Italy. I can't be sure of the town. Here are the towns in Caserta: http://en.comuni-italiani.it/061/index.html I couldn't find a match.
The final destination is Carbondale, Pennsylvania.
This is an interesting document to try to decipher!
I hope you get the information you are looking for.
Cirignano is a hamlet of Montesarchio which is just half way between Benevento and Caserta. This town is now under Benevento province but could have been under Caserta at that time. The other town listed on Filomena Tansillo manifest (Avella) is not far from Montesarchio. In this area there are three provinces (Avellino, Caserta, Benevento) and borders were relocated in the years.
