    Notes 
    • A number of Caldieros immigrate through Ellis Island, but none are named Alphonse. Instead, the only Alphonses close to this name who came through were named Caldieri. It might be a transcription error, but it’s an error by different scribes on different manifests over a number of years.

      The 1930 census says that he immigrated in 1892, which must be the first date of immigration. There isn’t a reason to doubt this, but I can’t find a record of a trip then.

      The first migration record that matches his age is in 1901, aboard the S.S. Patria, arriving in NYC from Naples on 25 June 1901. He was 18, and Alphonse would have turned 19 that year. He was unmarried, but was from S. Valentino. He also has a relation listed, a “Pasquale” Caldieri.

      Nana (Theresa), his grand-daughter, says that he had first immigrated when he was 18 (so, abt. 1900) with a wife and three children; this would match. The wife and two children, twins, died (apparently in childbirth); the third died soon after—he always said from grief. He then returned to Italy to find another wife. When he did, though, he was drafted into the Italian army for WWI.

      In 1907, Alphonse Caldiero, arriving from Naples aboard the Neckar on 1 June, is from S. Valentino and traveling to Buffalo. He says that his brother Pasquale lives there. (There is another record of an Alfonso Caldiero arriving on the Roma from Naples on 21 April 1907, but this entry is lined out, with no data, so perhaps this is an error.)

      In 1912, Alphonzo Caldieri and his wife Carmela Alaria arrived from Naples aboard the S.S. Berlin on 22 March. This matches the 1920 census, which says that he and his wife Carmela immigrated in 1912 (though, this 1920 Carmela would be Carmela Custodi). They were from S. Valentino in Salerno. They list a close relation. Alphonse’s father in San Valentino is “Carmine.” The second page of the manifest says that they are traveling to Buffalo, and the relation they are traveling to there is his brother Pasquale at 278 Seneca St.

      “Caldiero” is a town in nothern Italy. It has the historical distinction of being conquered by Napoleon (the Battle of Caldiero was on Nov. 11, 1796), and having the town’s name engraved on the Arc de Triomphe in Paris. [11]
