Here's the first set of kids coming over in 1899... please note the 7 or 8 year gap between Giovanna and Francesca... maybe some were left in Italy and came over in 1910... ( just too lazy to do the math....)

http://ellisisland.org/search/shipManif ... 3466060030

0020. Ceraso, Vincenzo M 34 M Italian S. Donato N.
0021. Ceraso, Zelomena Ferraro F 36 M Italian S. Donato N.
0022. Ceraso, Luigi M 12 S Italian S. Donato N.
0023. Ceraso, Francesca F 11 S Italian S. Donato N.
0024. Cerasp, Giuseppe M 1y S Italian S. Donato N.
0025. Ceraso, Giovanna F 3 S Italian S. Donato N.

The manifest that wldspirit located for you is where the brother Dominic (of the kids...) is mentioned as the relative living in Italy (far left of the manifest)

1910

I have family in Tivoli Italy whose surname is Cerasi-which means cherry.
Hope this helps!

My name is Krista. I see there is talk about my Great Grandfather Frank Cherry, also know as Francesco Ceraso. He lived in Manyunk, Pa. His parents were Vincenzo and Filomena.

There was an age gap between some of the kids... I noticed this too... Wonder how many more children we haven't discovered...

Wonder how old Dominic is... (he might be the eldest??)

If the Ellis site was running.. I'd be looking for him right now... I am hoping he made a visit ...

These are my Ancestors! :D I don't know about a domenic but I do know after their son Luigi drowned they went back to Italy. Filomena Ferraro passed and Vincenzo Remarried a Filomena Caruso and had two daughters Luigina and Giovanna
