Desolina or Pesolina Santarelli

Post by trevisan2 » 06 Oct 2014, 06:29

I have this friend that has not been able to locate where her great grandparents came from in Italy.
She heard from her family that Desolina may have come through Canada.
She would like to know where Desolina came from a and who the grandparents are.
Desolina may have been very young when she came to USA, maybe even four years old.

Desolina or Pesolina Santarelli
Died 22 Sept 1993
Tauwanda, Pa, USA

Married to Athilio Marcucci
Died 17 July 2003
Macungie, Lehigh, PA, USA

Any information would be greatly appreciated.
Regards,

Attilio Marcucci MIGHT be from Arcevia, province of Ancona.
If these are their census records:

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.3.1/T ... cc=2000219

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/XH84-GPF

He should have been born about 1900, and this MIGHT be his ship record:

https://familysearch.org/pal:/MM9.1.1/X2GJ-K4D

If that's him, this is his birth record:

Thank you so much,
but I was wanting to verify where Desolina or Pesolina Santarelli was coming from in Italy, so that I could find out who Pesolina's grandparents are.

Desolina's parents are Francesco Santarelli and Annunizata Brunetti.

Here is an arrival for Desolina Santarelli in 1912 at age 2.
She arrives with mother, Annunziata Brunetti, and 6 older brothers.
They are from NOCERA UMBRA, and joining father, Francesco Santarelli, in Jesseps, PA.

This is pretty cool, I am a great grand daughter of Desoilina and Atilio and I was thinking of traveling to PA to take a history tour by visiting where their farm was on Spring Hill, and the stone work he did at the Marie Antoinette Lookout. If I can find the farm and their old house. I always wondered "Nonni's" pairents names. Anything else you can share for my trip?

I'm confused by my research tonight. The story in the family has always been that Desolina and Attilio got married when she was 13. Her entry (mentioned above) in 1912 @ 2 years old would have meant she was born in 1910. His obituary says they were married in 1926, which would have made her 16...

Attilio and Desolina were married 25 June 1925. Following is a copy of their marriage license from Lackawanna County PA. Desolina states her age as 18 but I believe she was about 16 based on her age and approximate year of birth from the above ship manifest.

Desolina's father Francesco died in 1918, likely from the Spanish flu. He was widowed at the time so Annunziata Brunetti died sometime between her arrival in 1912 and his death in 1918.

Francesco's death certificate:
