I'm looking at my husband's great grandfather's World War 1 draft registration card. He wrote for place of birth "Ucerre," or that's what it looks like (and it seems to be very clearly written). He was born 2/28/1888. I can't seem to find a town with that name. I think my mother-in-law said my father-in-law's family came from Naples. Any help with this?
Here he was John Pisco, born 2/28/1888. All we know about him is that he came to the US at about 16 years old with his father. We don't know where he was born but were told he came from Naples area. His mother (don't know her name) died young. The draft registration card said he had one brother. I don't know if the brother came here with him. Never any mention by family here that there was a brother living here. We don't know what port he arrived at in the US.
I've been looking through some other information and it's possible his birthday was 2/28/1890. I think he ended up in Kansas City, Kansas prior to moving to Ilasco, Missouri. He had two brothers, both died young before 1940. He came to US with his father but his father went back to Italy.
I certainly appreciate all that you've done to help me in this search. I contacted another relative here to see if she can give me any other info at all about background. Don't think she has any but thought I'd give it another try anyway. Again, thank you.
