My great grandparents were: Pasquale DeSimone b: 4 Jan 1868 Antonetta Gargiulo b: 24 Jun 1881 Both were from Vico Equense,Campania
Pasquale's parents were: Antonio DeSimone & Marianna (don't know her surname) Pasquale was one of five or six brothers. I know one brothers name was Frank. They were all sailors. I do not know the names of any of his other siblings.
Pasquale & Antonetta had 7 children. They returned to Vico Equense 1915-1921. The passport information says Pasquale was going back to "settle an estate." They were trapped by the war and unable to return to the U.S. until the early 20's. They lost one son, Guiseppe while they were in Italy. He died of Influenza (we were told.)
My grandfather Antonio (Tony) was born 1 Feb 1904 in the U.S. Manhattan. Antonetta supposedly had one birth before he was born but I can not find any record of it.
I would like help finding the family members of my great grandparents. Can anyone help verify any of the information above? Can you help with who Pasquale's siblings were, what their occupations were. Anything would be helpful.
I appreciate any help. Thanks. And Happy New Year!
