Ferruzzano

Postby MichaelMaranda » 25 Apr 2014, 17:48

Ferruzzano is in Reggio Calabria.

Giovanni Marando came from Ferruzzano, arriving in NY in 1903. I am told he had four sisters and was the only son. I have not traced any of his sisters. We believe two of their names are Agata and Columba. It looks like Agata married Demitri Cardile and followed him to the states with their son Salvatore. I have not been able to trace them further.

Giovanni's parents were Domenico Marando and Pasqualina Vigliante.

I'm interested in connecting with anyone researching Feruzzano or otherwise knowledgable on Ferruzzano.

Looking at two arrival manifests for Demetrio Cardile (1907 and 1910)...
1907... destination - Pasquale ??? in Washington, NJ
http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 234344864&
1910 .. leaving wife Agata in Ferruzzano - destination: cousin Giuseppe Italiano in Pittford, NY
http://www.ellisisland.org/search/shipM ... 0234&show=\\192.168.100.11\images\T715-1517\T715-15170052.TIF&origFN=\\192.168.100.11\IMAGES\T715-1517\T715-15170053.TIF

You might want to research the cousin... maybe a lead to where Demetrio and Agata settled...

Thank you Tessa, that looks like a very solid lead. I've been stuck with this one for a long time!

Thank you again! I could not quite make out the surname Italiano in the passenger list.

What the passenger list and the census record with the many boarders reinforce for me is how they traveled and settled together --- the names of the Ferruzzanoti are largely recognizable - Vigliante - for example both on the passenger list and at the boarding house are likely cousins of my great grandfather.

I'm still at a loss as to best strategies to determine where they wound up next.

My list of likely places for Demetrio/Agatha & Salvatore included Rochester, NY, NYC, and Pennsylvania. So it is good to find Demetrio so close to Rochester (Pittsford is pretty much adjacent). I can't help feeling the spelling of the name may have changed upon or after their arrival. My family surname shifted from Marando to Maranda (though an intermediate generation largely denied that possibility!).

I spent a good part of the night trying to track down as many public ancestry trees with people born in Ferruzzano, in hopes of piecing something together. I accumulated about 300 people so far, including some descendants. The attributions of all may not be accurate, but it helped me fill out two or three connections I was missing in my tree. (I still have to process and confirm some of those). But as of yet have not found the Cardile family. I note that in the 1907 he seems to have gone to Washington, DC. (and this is confirmed in the 1910 manifest).

Thank you Again!

Have you seen this WWI Registration Card (1918)

Demetrio Cardillo - living in Rochester, NY
Though there are some differences on the facts here, I still believe this is your Demetrio.
Wife listed as "Edna" could be what a clerk heard when he said Agata..
Date of 1879 for birthdate is not so far off that we can throw it out...
What I believe clinched it for me was the physical description... medium height and blue eyes. - since his arrival manifest indicates that his eye color is "sky", and his height is 5' 5"

So here is a Possible record for your Demetrio. You might want to search the address in the 1920 US Census..
Image


Also found a reference to a Demetri Cardelli in the Rochester Daily Record. It appears to be a list of Civil Court Summary Proceedings - and the case was found in his favor for $60. The newspaper is from MAY 3, 1951

Wow. It will take me some time to study these closely - but this is impressive. Thank you for this!

It has me wondering about the different names people go by -- Agnes for Agata, and the name Catuzza which comes up on the other thread. I had only seen Catuzza as a surname previously, perhaps someone knows what it means?

Many times it is a misunderstanding of the pronunciation of the name. A clerk will hear it ( spoken with an Italian accent) and try to write it phonetically or write a name they are familiar with. Since many immigrants were illiterate, they did not spell out names for clerks, census takers, etc.
For example, I was helping someone look for the maiden name of their grandfather's mother... On his Social Security Application it was written as "Chiatz" [Ki -ah - tz]... doesn't sound too Italian, does it?
Well, after more searching, it was found to be "Caiazza" - which phonetically produced "Chiatz

I believe "Catuzza" was either a misreading of a document due to handwriting, or a misunderstanding of the pronunciation of the name...

Agnes, on the other hand, is an "americanization" of Agata :-)

Catuzza is Caterina (Catherine). The -zza at the end of a name was used to distinguish a child from an older relative with the same name. Sometimes it stuck into adulthood. We called an aunt "Catuzza" until her death into her 70's. I also had an aunt Annuzza (Anna) and a cousin Pinuzza (Giuseppina). I still have relatives that live just up the coast from Ferruzzano where the surname Marando is common.

Hope this helps.

Mary - thank you for that background information.

Is it likely to be used with Agata?

Where we find it is on the online catalog for finding gravesides at Holy Sepulcher in Rochester which returns the following:

Cordello Catuzza AKA Agnes
Age: 66
Burial Date: March 28, 1949

Image A friend found this for me. It's a birth record for Agata. And it has an annotation pertaining to her marriage, but I can't make out the content of the annotation other than the note being in 1905.

Looks like 4 or 11 June 1905 marriage was contracted with Cardile Demetrio [Demetrio Cardile].
Then it is signed and dated by the official on 21 June 1905

EDIT TO ADD:


Looking at the notation again... it really is hard to read the date - and I am unsure of the first words... usually it identifies the Act #... It looks like it could be the date, or the act #.
ALSO the official's date of insertion could be 27 instead of 21 :shock: :shock:

Can you provide the link to the record, rather that an image?

I don't have that. (I wish I did have it!) This was provided to me by someone who had gathered some data on Ferruzzano for other purposes. I don't think these have been indexed. And thank you once more!
