Thank you so much for your help in finding out about this family mystery.
From what my Aunts do remember about their Uncle Santi (they thought his name was Santo), he died before he could bring his wife over from Sicily. We do not think they had children. I am awaiting word back from Gaggi, Sicily, on a marriage cert for Santi.
Thank you for the info on checking on Santi's intent to become a US citien. What is the "cor/o" in the address for the Clinton County Court House? Someone on the "Italy" forum found that in 1920 census, in Racine, WI, Santi's brother Nicola (Nick) had only applied for his citizenship...
On Santi's Ellis Island ship manifest it states he was going to see brothers Domenico and Guiseppe Abate and the word brothers was crossed out and replaced with writing that looks like sons-in-law... Could not have been sons-in-law, quite possibly could have been his brother-in-law (brother's of his wife). Don't know his wife's name yet to verify a connection. He went straight to Glen Union. Looks like he was sponsored by the Abate brothers directly. I've learned that Italian immigrants couldn't just come over to America - they needed to be called for or sponsored. In 1905 Santi sponsored his brother Nicola to come over. The eldest of Nicola's children is daughter 92 yrs old. An 84 yr old sister does not remember anything about an Uncle Santi and said her older sister's memory is not well.
The Register & Recorder office in Lock Haven did a check on Recupero's in the 1900 and 1910 census - found no record. There has been no check on the Abate brothers, yet.
I will write the Courthouses in each of those surrounding counties you have mentioned, to see if they have any record of a Santi Recupero death.
It would be great if something came up in a newspaper aricle. Thank you for looking. Let me know if I can answer any questions that come up on your end.
