Subject: [ITA-SICILY-L] Need help on Castelli & Aspromonte please

 

Please help.

I am searching for information on Antonio Castelli from Spadafora/Milazzo, Messina, Sicily. He & immigrated in 1895. Family lore tells me he married a German wife, had a child and the family blew up when a gas light was lit in their home. Supposedly the city had several such explosions at this time.

Family lore also tells me he could have been in Marion, Indiana, somewhere in Iowa or maybe Marion, Illinois. I have contacted these municipalities but to no avail.

Does anyone know of gas explosions in Italian areas at this time?  He could also have gone by the name of Antonio Aspromonte.  If anyone has any suggestions, please let me know. Thank you!

Subject: [ITA-SICILY-L] Vento from Milazzo, Messina, Sicily

 

I just received my great grandfather's declaration of intention and petition for naturalization.

Stefano Vento born in Milazzo, Messina in 1882. His father's name was Vincent.

Stefano's siblings are Antonio, Joseph and Maria Vento Caravello.  In 1899 he arrived in New York aboard the SS Carolina. He sailed from Naples.

Would anyone have any information on this Vento family or the SS Carolina?

Thank you!
