Last Place of Residence: Roccorauona ( Roccaromana)
Date of Arrival: Apr 14, 1902

Ship of Travel: Trojan Prince
Port of Departure: Naples
Manifest Line Number: 0011
final destination New Castle, PA joining at brother Pecoraro... ... &line=0011

the infos matching with 1910 census:

I believe that also Tony Cunti was born in Roccaromana because the lart numers of Cunti in New Castle coming from Roccaromana.. I believe that the first name was no Giuseppe Antonio .. Maybe just Antonio or ...(?)Antonio

As you know the birthdate May 1870? you are sure?
However Roccaromana seeming the very probable birthplace of your Antonio Cunti....

Again me.
abt your idea of Baia e Latina possible birth place... it could be right...
The oldest son of Antonio Cunti was Joe Cunti..
so by italian tradition, the Antonio father could have the first name of Giuseppe...

I found a birth record in Baia e Latina 22 May 1870 #25:

Antonio CUNTI son of Giuseppe CUNTI, 32 old (b. abt 1838), farmer, domiciled in Baia e Latina (son of Francesco) and of Concetta ABBONDANZA (daughter of late Lorenzo) ... 1143-00535

It could be your ancestor?

The Giuseppe Cunti father of Antonio, arrival:

Giuseppe CUNTI arrival:
First Name: Giuseppe
Last Name: Cunti
Ethnicity: Italy, Italian South
Last Place of Residence: Baca Latina
Date of Arrival: Apr 06, 1900
Age at Arrival: 63y Gender: M Marital Status: M
