Ognibene / Bonasera Family
I am researching Rosario G OGNIBENE and Laura "Loreta" BONASERA. Rosario G. was born 1853-1854 in Italy and I assume he died Aft. April 21, 1930 Census in USA. Laura "Loreta" was born 1854-1855 in Italy and I also assume she died Aft. April 21, 1930 Census in USA. Rosario immigrated 5/24/1903 and Laura "Loreta" 4/28/1904.
Rosario and Laura "Loreta" married 1871-1872. They had 17 children, all born in Vallelunga, Sicili but only 7 survived and all of them imigrated to New York. Their names are Salvatore "Toto" (Abt. 1877) married to Maria AURIEMMA, Michael "Michele" (Abt. 1883), Laura M. (1885-1886) married to Dominick CUCCI, Rose R. (1887-1888)married to Samuel M. LADUCA, Mary L. "Lucia" (Abt. 1891) married to John MENDOLIA, Lucia M. "Luisa/Lucy" (1891-1892) married to Laurence LUPO, Leon "Liborio" (July 16, 1895) married to Rose "Rosa/Rosina" BONASERA.
Michael "Michele" immigrated before 1903. He was the first of the Family to move to New York but no records have been found yet.
Leon "Liborio" and his wife Rose "Rosa/Rosina" BONASERA are 2nd or 3rd cousins but I was not able to verify it at this point.
If any of this sounds familiar, please contact me. Thank you
