Santi Recupero death certificate
Posted by: Chris Recupero (ID *****4174) Date: November 20, 2002 at 11:34:56

Help me anyone,

I'm looking for info on my grandfather's eldest brother Santi Recupero. He immigrated from Sicily in 1904 to Glen Union, PA. I found his Ellis Island ship manifest which states he was headed for Glen Union. He was 23 and married. A brother Nicola followed him over in 1905. Soon afterward Santi died, some family members say, as a result of being hit by a train. The family never spoke of Santi, they believed his death was suicide. Nicola moved on to Racine, WI before 1910 where the rest of the Recupero brothers and sisters ended up when they immigrated (1907-1913).

I have written the Vital Records Department for the State of PA for them to search their death records that only go as far back as 1906. Their search of 1906-1915 did not find any such Santi Recupero. To search for records 1905 and earlier I was instructed to contact the County Courthouse in the county in which he died (this exact county I can only guess at). I wrote to the County courthouse in Lock Haven, PA. I received a quick response back from the Register and Recorder's office in Lock Haven. Their search of 1905 records did not find any Recupero. They wrote back saying they did not have any record of a Glen Union, Clinton county, PA, either. I then faxed them back some info on Glen Union, PA that I received from an historian in Renovo, PA, and from my own searching for Glen Union, PA, on MSN map search. They then wrote back to me that, infact, Glen Union was part of Grugan Township.

Short of contacting various County Courthouses in the surrounding areas, does anyone have any other ideas?

Anything would be greatly appreciated.
