Hungary or Romania to Illinois
Emil Ingini was the only father I ever really knew, but I am starting this for my sisters, who are curious.. We knew almost nothing about his family, and I am the family genealogist/ historian.As far as we know the name is dying out.I hope this forum leads to other Ingini's.
After they immigrated the father returned to his homeland, leaving his wife and two sons.Emil married twice.His first wife and children died. We think of bad hearts.Emil married my mother and had two daughters and an handicapped son, who has cerebral palsy and is in a wheelchair.The other son Joseph never married, and as far as we know died childless.
According to the 1930 Census of St. Clair County, Illinois:
Rosa Ingini, home owner, 41, widowed.
Joseph Ingini, son, 23, single
Emil Ingini, son, 22, single
Rosa, Joseph and Emil were born in Hungary, as were all their parents.They immigrated in 1911. Both Joseph and Emil worked in a packing house.
Of course, there's a little more in the census at ED 82-25.A web site said that Rosa was
in ED 82-48.I wasted some time, lookin there first.They lived at 2314 North 54th Street, East St. Louis (Washington Park) Illinois.
Emil (Pop) received a letter from some relatives, a long time ago and had to have it translated.Emil died in 1989, and this was long before his death.Mom says that the letter stated that one of Emil's parents was from Hungary and the other from just across the border in Romania
