Searching for surname "Cinque" heritage

Post by alching » 13 Mar 2016, 15:04

My great Grandfather, Alessandro (Alexander) Cinque was born in 1861 in Italy. He may have emmigrted to the US in 1890 and listed: Sicignano degli Alburni a town in the province of Salerno as his place of residence. I would like get any information for my family tree. He may have had a brother named Gabrial who also emmigrated to the US, they both resided in Utica, NY. Alessandro was married to Donato Grippe also of Italy. We plan on visiting Italy next year and I would love to get in touch with and living relatives of mine and to visit the birthplace of my great grandfather Alessandro. Thank you for any help you can provide.

Is iit Possible that Luigi Cinque B1829 and Philomena Cascone had more children?
I see where there is an Anna, Lucy, and Antonio, however Antonio is listed as a stepbrother to Genardo and Gabriele in his obituary. His last name being Stola.

My family is from Pagani.
I'd say Antonio's surname might be Stoja or Stoia. Can you check the obit?
Also, there are still Cinque families there.

Yes PippoM, I saw a census report that listed Antonio Stoia, the obit might be a transcription error. It is wonderful to hear that I may still hav living ancestors in Pagani. We are definately planning to visit Italy in the next year or so and would love to meet them. Thank you. I dont know how Antonio became a stepbrother of Gabriele and Genarro Cinque. My 2nd Great Grandmother was Filomena(Philomena) Cascone she married Luigi Cinque.

You can find a list of some of the Cinque's in Pagani here:

http://www.paginebianche.it/ricerca?qs= ... i+%28SA%29

Pagani is not such a beautiful place to see, but it's near Naples, Pompeii, and Amalfi Coast.
But, if you can, I'd recommend you to be there on the weekend after Easter, when we have a folk festival known as the festival of "Madonna delle Galline" ("our Lady of the Hens"). Of course, contact me, and I'll be glad to help you.
