FEROLA from Avellino Italy to Boston MA
My gr grandfather, Francesco Ferola, age 25 and the son of Michele and Vitella Ferola, came from Avellino, Italy to USA aboard the Utopia II, which sailed from Naples, Italy, sometime during the summer of 1889.
He landed in New York on Sept. 6, 1889 but eventually went to Boston, where he met and married my gr grandmother, Maria Jesus Freitas, a tailor from the Azores.
They lived on 16 Moon St. in the north end of Boston where they had a family. They eventually moved to Seventh St in east Cambridge.
Francesco (Frank) died in the early 1900's and Maria (Mary) died on Jan 22, 1947.
