San Valentine, Torio, Salerno > Brooklyn Pacellis
Posted by: Dean Amadio (ID *****5407) Date: July 27, 2008 at 17:33:07

Recently found out a bunch more info about my Pacellis. My Pacellis were probably all born in San Valentine, Torio, Salerno and were in Brooklyn by 1900 (though arrived 3 - 10 years earlier). Francesco (Frank) b. about 1845 d. 1920 & Giacoma (Jennie) b. 1853 d. 1922 & their children Pasquale (pretty sure he also went by Walter) b. about 1870 d.?, Guiseppe (Angelo) b. about 1881 d. 1950s, Grazia (Gracie) b. 1887, d. ?. Francesco's parents were Francesco Pacelli and Mary Crispi. Giacoma's parents were Joseph Crispi and Giacoma Terra (I have no other info on their parents, other than that they were born in Italy and were probably also from Salerno). Both Francesco and Giacoma are buried in St. John's Cemetery in Middle Village, Queens.

Most of them were living in Brooklyn on Summit St. in 1900, Harrison St. in 1904/05, St. Edwards in 1910, and N. Portland Avenue 1915, 1920, 1925, & 1930. Joseph (Angelo) may have been living and working on Clarkson Ave (Brooklyn State Hospital) in the 1940s. Oddly - his second wife Violet (Viola) died at Pilgrim State Hospital in 1969 and had been at Creedmoor in 1930. They are both buried in St. Charles Cemetery in Farmingdale, LI. Pasquale (Walter) married Winnie and lived on Myrtle Ave. in 1900 and 1910. Winnie's maiden name may have been Sinclair or St. Clair. Both Joseph (Angelo) and Pasquale (Walter) were barbers, and at least some of the time worked at a barbershop on Myrtle Avenue. We're not sure what happened to Grazia (Gracie) but know that she married Guiseppe Amadio January of 1904, and was living with the Pacellis on Harrison St. in 1905. She married Guiseppe Amadio b. about 1875 in Rome, Italy (parents were Eugenio Amadio and Rosa Corradino) and had one child together, Eugene Amadio in 1905. We suspect Guiseppe may have returned to Italy and had other children there, but we're not sure.

Other than Grazia's one child, we are unaware if Pasquale (Walter) & Winnie or Joseph (Angelo) & either Adi (first wife) or Violet (Viola) had any children. We're also not sure of any connection to Pacellis living in the U.S., but know there are some originally from Salerno. Any connections with my Pacellis?
