- “Campobosso” on his WW1 draft registration
||1 Jun 1913
||Ellis Island, Upper New York Bay 
- on the Konig Albert, from Naples. He was from Ferrazzano, Campobosso; wife Dorothea Palermo
||Enum. Dist. 15-31, 4th Ward (Myrtle Ave.), Buffalo, Erie Co., New York
- As a roomate in the household of Serafino Palermo, aged 41; “laborer” doing “general work”
- Was in WWI for Italy; then came to America without Dorothea. I assume therefore that Dorothea was a sister that was left behind. They had one child that died of pneumonia in Italy.
He came to the US. But, his wife apparently would not come to the US until her parents died. Judging by the censuses, this seems to have been between 1930 and 1935. During WW1 he registered for the draft, describing himself as an Italian citizen, with a wife and child.
In 1930, he was living with the Palermo family. In 1940, he (aged 51) and Dorothea (aged 54, born in Italy) are living with the Pozzuto family (his brother Epifanio’s daughter Felicia). He had been living in the same house in 1935.
