By 1930 living in Brooklyn, having moved from Louisiana.
Benjamin - Birth abt. 1908 - Louisiana
Josephine - Birth abt. 1913 - Louisiana
Gaetana/Tina - Birth abt. 1916 - New York
Joseph - Birth abt. 1918 - New York
Florence - Birth abt. 1923 - New York
Diana - Birth abt. 1925 - New York
Another child Mary, died as infant in Louisiana.
Benjamin Lo Piccolo may have served in WW 2, as family remembers him arriving in the Port of Naples with a military ship??
I'm sure I've missed something here, so feel free to jump in.....was hoping to locate the parish they attended in 1930 based on location, and perhaps obtain further clues from the parish, but I have yet to recieve any response to my request.
Hopefully with John in Brooklyn we can get further leads.
"Cambiano i suonatori ma la musica Ã¨ sempre quella."
I had a question, I thought in the thread I read something
about them living in Long Island (Garden City, Nassau, etc.)
did this information turn out to be incorrect?
According to the WWII card they lived on 176 Menahan St.,
which is located in the Bushwick section of brooklyn.
Now, us Italians in New York tend to immigrate with
each other... travel in packs, if you will haha.
So here's the deal: If the family had a decent amount of
money and could afford it, it's very reasonable that
they could have gone into Long Island.
If they didn't much money, it's more likely
they stuck with italian migration and came into South Brooklyn
as Bay Ridge, Bensonhurst, Coney Island, etc.
If they moved into Bay Ridge or Bensonhurst there's a good shot
that some remnants of the family is still around.
However, there's also a very good chance
they could have moved to Staten Island or New Jersey
within the past 20 years.
I did some phone calls, but most people are at work.
Now, looking in the white pages for LoPiccolo in Brooklyn,
there's two pages worth. So I guess I'll just have to work
down the list and wing it.
But I'm going to need some info from the poster about
the poster to gain credibility when asking these people
about their family. They're gonna want to know.
Just her name, and her city residence (which i'm assuming
is San Guiseppe Jato) will do.
I'll try my best, but it seems to be that the information cuts
off at a critical time... there's no new information after the
30s. So we don't know any decendants names after the 30s.
Francesco had 7 kids, one whom died. so only 2 out of the
6 were male (1913, 1918). So the last male decendants
we know of were born in 1913, 1918. So it's possible that
either male could have had all girls, or no children at all.
1918 to now is a huge span of time.
so really, there's no new decendants information after 1918.
So in essence, we'll be asking possible candidates of decents
to remember names from the early 1900s.
Plus, it's younger generations, whom,
to be honest, might not know such historical family history facts,
and the people who would might be long gone.
These are the realities as I see it.
Of course, there is still hope.
I still have reason to believe that I may have been in
the same coffee shop, bakery, deli, sidewalk of the
decendants of our dear poster. And that's something
to be excited about.

Married to Brooklyn with one its countrywoman of not sure name (Caterina Marchione)? or (Marianna Marchione). They had many sons between which: Benedict LO PICCOLO, Maria LO PICCOLO, and then also Giuseppe, Gaetana, Gertrude, Francisco. Of the first two names Benedict and Maria are sure that is, because they carried the names grandfathers, parents of FRANCESCO LO PICCOLO. My grandfather Vincenzo Lo Piccolo was the only brother of Francesco, and he has not never known it, because to the age of its departure he had only 2 years. Francesco never more is not returned in Italy, for some year has given news then after its dead women around to years â€œ50, has not known more nothing. Four years ago my grandfather Vincenzo is dead man, with the sorrow not to have known more nothing neither of the brother neither of the grandsons. I have tried but I have evidently not made in time dargli this joy, I do not want to surrender but, and I hope that you can help me.
sanlopiccolo, puoi mandarmi una email con i tuoi dati? la persona che sta aiutando wldspirit nella ricerca ha bisogno di conoscerli per poter dare informazioni e di sapere come sei effettivamente imparentata con francesco, mandami una email con i tuoi dati o scrivili direttamente a wldspirit, altrimenti la ricerca rimane in stand-by.. grazie, ciao, suanj
Cara Suanj, solo ora riesco a rispondere al tuo messaggio, ho avuto problemi con la connessione.
Tu mi chiedi informazioni sulla mia parentela con Lo Piccolo Francesco, io ti dico quello che so:
Lo Piccolo Francesco emigrato in USA nel 1906, era fratello di mio nonno Vincenzo Lo Piccolo, di 17 anni piÃ¹ giovane, infatti quando Francesco Ã¨ partito a 19 anni, mio nonno Vincenzo aveva 3 anni.
I loro genitori si chiamavano Maria Lumetta e Benedetto Lo Piccolo.
Lo Piccolo Francesco era nato a San Giuseppe Jato in provincia di Palermo nel 1887 (circa).
Se hai altre cose da chiedermi contattami pure, ma le mie informazioni sono scarse.
Ti saluto e ringrazio voi tutti, attendo sempre con fiducia. UN BACIO.
