Surname Cappuccio and De Prisco of Grottaminarda, Avellino

Post by vcappuc » 04 Dec 2013, 01:20

Francesco Cappuccio born abt. 1864 Grottaminarda, arrival abt 1896
Carmina (spelling?) De Prisco born abt. 1878 Avellino, arrival in 1905 with:
Agostino Cappuccio (step son of Carmina)
Mariano Cappuccio (step son of Carmina)
Rosaria Cappuccio (sp? step daughter of Carmina)
Eugenio Cappuccio (step son of Carmina)
Maria Cappuccio (daughter of Carmina and Francesco)

In the ship manifest that shows Carmina De Prisco and the 5 children, it says that Carmina's Brother in Law is "Santito Cappuccio" I have not been able to find any matches to this name and am not sure he ever immigrated to us. In a separate manifest for Francesco which contains the oldest daughter Margherita, traveling with him in 1896, it mentions a sister named "Giuseppe" -I have no information for her either and am wondering if the manifest for Francesco is incorrect.

Looking for siblings or parents of Francesco Cappuccio, and any information on Carmina (sp?) De Prisco.
