Subject: [ITA-SICILY-L] Surnames BONDIO, PARTA, LETA, CANGELOSI and ACARDO

I just received the death certificates for my great great granparents, who all immigrated from Sicily to New Orleans in the 1890s. Thought I would post updates in case anyone could now make a connection or had any information.

Ralph BONDIO died in 1919 at 40 years old. He immigrated from Palermo and lived in New Orleans until his death. He married Josephine Gentile and had children Victorine (1904), Frank, Dominick, Vincent and August Bondio, all born in N.O. His parents are listed as Vincent (hard to read, could be Vinceu or Vincen) Bondio and his mother as Victoria Yacorrelli (?).  QUESTIONS: Does anyone know what the Italian name for Vincent is and can anyone recall an Italian surname remotely looking like Yacorrelli or Yacorrellio?

Joseph PARTA immigrated from Palermo and lived in New Orleans since 1890.  He married Dorothy Cangelosi (see below) and had the following children:

Josephine (Mrs Philip Accardo- 1900-1971), John Parta (1909-1982), Lena (Mrs Vito Caronna-1905-1984), Frank Parta (1922-1991), Joseph Parta (1914-1985), Nick Parta (1902-1966) and Viola Parta (1912-1933). Joseph's father was Nick Parta and mother was not identified.

John Cangelosi (1850-1928) was a native of Poggioreale and lived in New Orleans since 1897. (I think he immigrated on the ship, Sarnia- 3/2/1897 with his daughters Dorothy and Beatrice, Naples to N.Y. to N.O.).  He was married to Antonina Acardo (see below) and children included Joseph Cangelosi (1895-1965), Josephine (mrs M Genovese), Lula (Mrs A Caronna), Beatrice (mrs Anthony Tridico) and Dorothy (mrs Joseph parta- 1884-1966).  He was the son of Joseph Cangelosi and Beatrice Cangelosi, both natives of Italy.  Antonina ACARDO (1855-1931) was the daughter of Philip ACARDO and Doratea LETA, both natives of Italy. Antonina was from Poggioreale and married to John Cangelosi, above. She had a brother, Salvador ACARDO.

If anyone has information on or a connection to the above, please let me know.

Thanks,

Liz Orihel

Subject: Re: [ITA-SICILY-L] New Orleans/South areas

Frank,

I am researching New Orleans Immigrants from Sicily, as follows:

Joseph Parta, born 1776 in Palermo (son of Nick Parta) died in 1945 in New Orleans and his obituary states that he was a resident of New Orleans since

1890.  John Cangelosi, born in 1850 in Poggioreale (died 1928 in New Orleans, son of Joseph and Beatrice Cangelosi) and his wife, Antonina Accardo, born 1855 (had a brother Salvador and her parents are Philip Accardo and Dorothea Leta-Antonine died in N.O. in 1931). John and 2 daughters, Dorothea and Biagi immigrated through N.Y. in 1897 w/ destination N.O. All were from Poggioreale and the obituaries of John, Antonine and Dorothy all state that they were residents of New Orleans since 1897. John and Antonina had the following children, besides Dorothy: Joseph Cangelosi (1895-1965 who married Mamie Gagliano), Josephine (Mrs M Genovese), Lula (Mrs A Caronna) and Beatrice (must be Biagi- married Anthony Tridico) Joseph Parta married Dorothea Cangelosi (1884-1966) and had 7 children, first born June, 1900, all in N.O., including my grandfather, John Parta. Other children are Josephine (Mrs Philip Accardo), Lena (Mrs Vito Caronna), Frank, Joseph and Nick Parta and Viola (died at age 21).

Unfortunately for me, I cannot locate any of these individuals on the 1900, 1910 or 1920 LA census, even though I know they were here. 

On my maternal grandmother's side, her mother was a Bondio, whose father, Ralph Bondio, immigrated from Palermo in 1899 (b. 1879 and died 1919 in N.O.)  He married Josephine Gentile and they had 5 children, earliest was born in 1902. Ralph's death certificate is hard to read, but it looks like his parents were Vincent Bondio and Victoria Yacorrelli or Yacovelli. Children of Ralph and Josephine included Victorine (married Frederick DeGrasse), Frank, Dominick, Vincent and August Bondio.

If you have come across any of these names during your research, please let me know,

Thanks,

Liz Orihel

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Gibbalena

I just found out that my great great grandfather, August Gentile, born between 1853 and 1857, was a native of Italy and immigrated to New Orleans in either 1877, 1879 or 1880. The specific location in Italy is not mentioned in his census information, so I'll have to look in the "Italians to America" volumes and try to find his naturalization information to learn more about him. In the meantime, I saw a few other Gentiles who immigrated from Gibbalena, Italy to N.O. around the same time frame as August and thought they could be siblings and that maybe I had a lead. Does anyone know if Gibbalena Italy is in Italy or Sicily? Or does anyone have a connection to August Gentile?

Thanks for any information or suggestions,

Liz Orihel

Subject: Re: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] SS Caledonia: and SS Bolivia

Mary,

If your list is alphabetical and/or easy to look through, please look up Ralph Bondio/Bondie/Bondi on the SS Bolivia ship list. According to his census, and obituary info, he immigrated to New Orleans between 1896 and 1899 (native of Palermo, born in either 1899 or 1893) and was listed as an alien in the last census taken before his death. I have had no luck finding out information on him and would greatly appreciate knowing if he is on your list as I could not locate him in the "Italians to America" volumes and will probably have to look through alot of ship lists.

Thanks for any information.

Liz O.

Subject: [{ITA-SICILY-L}] Genealogy experts- please help on how to proceed

I am hoping that someone might have suggestions on how to proceed with research on my great-great grandfathers, 2 of whom were natives of Palermo and lived in New Orleans until their death. I have no information regarding the exact location of Palermo, but saw Jennifer's E-Mails about Microfilm.

1. Ralph Bondio  

I have his obituary which stated that he died in N.O. in 1919 at 40 years old (b. 1879?), a native of Palermo and a resident of N.O. for 20 years (1899?).  He was a member of the Societa Italiana del Tiro al Bersaglio and lived in the French Quarter.  His death certificate stated that he was a native of Italy, parents were (looks like) Vincent Bondio and Victoria Yaccavelli (both natives of Italy). and that he was 40 years old. I learned from you guys that someone is in the Soundex if they have children, so that would explain why I hadn't found him in the soundex for 1900, but he is in the 1910 LA census, noted as Ralph Bondie, he and parents natives of Italy, year of immigration=1896 and "al", so I guess he was never naturalized.  He was married for 6 years by that time and had 4 children and his age looks like "27" (b. 1893), but wasn't clear. He lived on Bourbon Street.  If I want to learn where he came from in Palermo and maybe find the ship he traveled on (although I heard he may have jumped ship while with the Italian navy while docked in N.O.), what should I do next?  He wasn't in the "Italians to America" books and I can't find his grave. Would anyone know how to locate him on the 1900 LA census if he's not in the Soundex?

2. Guiseppe (Joseph) Parta

His obituary states that he died in 1945 in N.O. and lived in New Orleans (family said that he lived on a farm in Gretna (Jefferson Parish LA) before moving to New Orleans and opening a grocery store (since at least 1933).  He was 69 (b.1876?), a native of Palermo and a resident of N.O. for 55 years (1890 at 14?).  His tombstone states his birth as 3/19/1876.  His death certificate states the same info and that his father was Nick Parta and mother unknown. I cannot find him on the 1900, 1910 or 1920 soundex for LA, nor in the "Italians to America" books. Any suggestions on what I can do next?

3.  Joseph Parta married Dorothea Cangelosi

(I assume in New Orleans as she immigrated from Poggioreale Sicily with her family- listed in "Italians to America" on the ship, Sarnia from Naples to New York (destination New Orleans) 3/2/1897- listed as Dorotea, age 12 with sister Biagia, age 15 and father, Giovanni, age 47). I cannot find any of the Cangelosi family on the same LA soundex  (Dorothy's mother, Antonine Accardo and several of Dorothy's siblings were not listed on that ship). I know that Joseph and Dorothy's first child was born 10/1900 and the children were listed in obituaries as being born in Gretna or New Orleans. Since I can't find John Cangelosi on the census, I don't know if he was naturalized or not, but would like to find out. Although their obituaries state the cemetery, I can't find the Cangelosi graves. I have John's and Antonine's obituaries and they both state they are natives of Poggioreale- any suggestions on how to proceed with John- can I request naturalization info with the ship info?

4.  Finally, I have a great-great grandfather, August Gentile, listed as native of Italy on the LA census- his daughter, Josephine, married Ralph Bondi, listed in Question 1. August is listed on the 1900 census twice (2 weeks apart) with same name, kids (wife's name was Pasqualina- native of Italy in one and Pascual- native of LA and parents natives of Italy in the other), all different birthdates and immigration date (all within a couple of years of other census).  Then he is on the 1910 census with same kids in same order as other census, again with different birth years and wife was listed as Percy- native of LA, parents natives of Italy).  I cannot find August's obituary and plan to look for his grave next week to see if I can obtain his and Pascual's years of death to obtain death certificates.  My question relates to naturalization info. The 3 census have different dates of immigration, 1877, 1879 and 1880- all say "na" and none report the state.

How should I request his naturalization info?

Thank you very much for any suggestions!

Liz O.
