Rosa DiCruzo/DeSantis

Post by britt0630 » 01 Mar 2014, 16:43

I am looking for any information on Rosa DiCruzo. I know she married Antonio DeSantis and had two children that I know of Mary DeSantis (Born 1900) and Lucia DeSantis (Born 1895,1896). Antonio and the two daughters came over to the United States on the Sicilia into New York July 6, 1905. I know the family moved to Providence, Rhode Island. Which is where Lucy Married Giovanni Trementozzi in 1916 and had 4 girls. Her father Antonio passed away in 1927. I have no information at all on Rosa and can't seem to find much at all. Any information would be helpful.

Took a look at the manifest for 1905...
Antonio was listed as age 41, making his birthdate approx. 1864 or 1865.
Listed with him were children, Lucia, age 9 and Ascenza (your Mary?), age 5
They were from Introdacqua, L'Aquilla.

Located a birth record for Antonio De Santis, born 23 September 1865 in Introdacqua... (#119)
Father: Giuseppe De Santis, age 43, peasant farmer
Mother: Luisa Colangelo, his wife, peasant farmer

Unfortunately, the online records for Introdacqua only cover up to 1865, so I am not able to locate a marriage for Antonio, or possibly a birth record for Rosa Di Cruzo [not finding this name in Italy.]

You might want to write directly to the Comune of Introdacqua to request them.

Here is the Act of Solemn Promise to Celebrate Marriage (#4)
for Giuseppe De Santis and Maria Luisa Colangelo in 1849 :-) (parents of Antonio)
Record is dated 9 April 1849 in Introdacqua
Groom: Giuseppe De Santis, age 25, peasant farmer, son of Michele and of Maria Domenica de Stefani
Bride: Maria Luisa Colangelo, age 22, daughter of Pietro and of Teresa de Paolo.
