In Reply to: Re: Taormina Family from Trabia, Sicily by Chuck Tomasello of 108

I have done some research into my ancestors by requesting vital documents: death certificates, census records and ship passenger lists. Here is what I found:

My grandfather:

Leonardo Lupo
Parents: Fillipo (Phillip) Lupo and Sebastiana Carbona
Born: 1/16/1876 San Nicola (San Nicolo D'Arena) apprx 3 miles west of Trabia.
Died: 11/13/1972 in New Orleans, LA
Immigrated: New Orleans, LA on the SS Manilla arriving 5/14/1902, a 25-year-old sailor.
Married: Maria Tomasello
Parents: Casimo Tomasello and Maria Alfonso (Alphonso)
Born: 7/4/1886 in Trabia
Immigrated: New Orleans, LA on the SS Manilla arriving 10/9/1903, 21 years old with my Aunt Sebastiana, 11 months old. Leonardo Lupo's brother, Benedetto, 17 years old, a fisherman, accompanied them, but returned some years later to Sicily.

In reviewing the passenger list of the SS Manilla leaving Palermo 4/24/1903, arriving New Orleans, La, 5/14/1903, I observed the names of individuals from Trabia:

Angela Tomasello 8
Guiseppa Tomasello 11
Tomasso Tomasello 8 mths
Anna Maria Tomasello 30

Their destination was New Orleans where they were meeting Anna Maria's husband,
Limairi (sp) Giovanni, address: Parlange (sp), LA, New Orleans.

Also next to their entry is a Romenica Charamonte 30, meeting her husband Salvatore Tomasello, address:
Parlange (sp), LA, New Orleans.
