Looking for information about family from Patti, Sicily

Postby ItalianbellaSA » 10 Jan 2011, 00:40

I am looking for information about my great-grandparents (Rosario Incognito -birth and death unknown and Carmella Cappadona - b. 1874 d. 1942). They had a daughter, my grandmother, Maria Incognito Griffo b. 1895 d. 1982. My Mom talked about her grandfather being gored by a bull in Sicily. I know my great-grandmother was in the U.S. with my grandmother and they settled in Hoboken, NJ. If anyone has any information about my family, I would be very appreciative. Thank you.

I am able to access Carmelo's manifest on Ellis Island

I think it's good that Antonio's marriage info has a church name

Antonio went to a cousin Antonino Faranda on Grand Street in Hoboken

Do you mean Carmelo? Antonino went to brother Carmelo on Grand street.


I still can't pull up the manifest. It keeps giving me an error message.

That is strange that you are getting an error message. The poster can search Ellis Island or Steve Morse and access it.

Wow! I can't believe all this information you gave me. Thank you very much. Is it possible to find out if Rosario Incognito was actually gored by a bull in Patti Sicily. It looks like Carmela was a widow. Maybe this story my Mom told me is true. Thanks again.

It is hoped that the research I am doing helps to discover, preserve and celebrate my family history.
