I want to identify the members of my family born from my ancestors who lived in MASSA LUBRENSE in the years 1800-1870 .
I ( Robert APREA ) was born in PHILIPPEVILLE ( Algeria) , near a small city named STORA where my geat grand parents arrived form MASSA LUBRENSE about the year 1870 . Since 1962, I lived in France, first in PARIS, after in NICE, on the french riviera .
My great great grand father was born in 1800 in MASSA LUBRENSE and married Veneranda ESPOSITO .
Both have had seven children all born in MASSA LUBRENSE : Angela Rosa b. on 22dec1834, Teresa b. 30 oct 1936, Gennaro b. 8 feb 1839, Luigi b 20 may 1841, Mariano b 15 oct 1843, Giovanna b.27 dec 1845 et Vincenzo b.3 nov 1848 .
Luigi ( my great grand father) and Vincenzo migrated to AlgÃ©ria about the year 1870 . Luigi married Serafina SAVARESE b. 27 nov 1847 in VICO EQUENSE , near MASSA LUBRENSE, and Vincenzo married Fortunata, sister on Serafina, b 27 jul 1854 in VICO EQUENSE Giovanna crossed the Ocean to NEW YORK, on september 1907, then 62 years old and widow, to join her son Michele ( immigration form ) .
She travelled with Anna SAVARESE , the 60 years old and widow, going to her son Nicola APREA , P.O BOX 206 in SAVANNAH ( Georgia ).. On dec. 1904, Nicola had received his cousins from Italy : Giuseppe CILENTO, b. 1882, and Liberato CILENTO, b 1878, sailing from NAPLES ,
Mariano migrated from PHILIPPEVILLE in 1910 to join his son " G. APREA " in NEW YORK
I do not know what happened to Angela-Rosa, Teresa and Gennaro .
Two interesting documents have been discovered by a cousin : A paper-form of commercial letter with the heading " APREA BROTHERS, WINE ANQ LIQUORS IMPORTERS, 198 DEGRAW STR. BROOKLYN, ESTABLISHED IN 1909 " . This enterprise was managed by the brothers APREA Luigi, b on 1889, Giovanni b. on 1883 and Salvatore b.on 1884, nephews of Vincenzo APREA and of Fortunata SAVARESE . All three gave the adress : " 25-27 Caroll Street , BROOKLYN ".
Another paper-form with the heading " APREA FISH CO - L. APREA , PRES. & MAN., WHOLESALE SHIPPERS, FRESH FISH AND OYSTERS, 418 BRYAN STREET WEST - SAVANNAH, GA " .
Great thanks to allfor any information about the descendants of the persons named above ..
