8: DiCaro Family Grandma would say the DiCaro family was descended from Spanish royalty. Don Giovanni De Caro, Baron of Montechiaro, was given the island of Lampedusa in 1436 by Alfonso of Aragon. The island is part of the Province of Agrigento, but it is located a little over 100 miles away. That is a fact, but it is not known whether he is related to our family or not. Salvatore DiCaro, son of Giovanni DiCaro & Francesca Sicurello, was born 1842, in the town of Raffadali, Italy and Rosalie Spataro, daughter of Alfonzo Spataro & Paola D'Amaro, was born in 1851 in the town of Ribera, Italy, according to her marriage record. Another family genealogy source has Rosalia's birthdate as November 23, 1849, and date of baptism, November 25, 1849. Giovanni & Rosalia were married in July, 1873 in Ribera. The first child born to them was Giovanni DiCaro in 1874. No record of his birth was found. Francesca Paola born in 1878, is believed to be Paolina, their first daughter. There is a birth record of a daughter also named Francesca Paola (Great Grandmother) born in 1880. Those two records were registered in Ribera. While researching Italian birth records, it was not uncommon that siblings were named the same name but one is known by the first name and the other is called by the middle name. Salvatore & Rosalia's son Giuseppe was born in 1888, but no record of his birth can be found. Salvatore & Rosalie eventually settled in Tunis, with their children. They stayed in Tunis, never coming to the United States. There is a record of Salvatore's burial at "Asile V" in 1912 in Tunis. Rosalie's Catholic burial was recorded in Sacre Coeur parish in 1927 under the last name Spartaro. Great Grandfather Giovanni DiCaro met Great Grandmother Rosa Santino in Tunis when she was 14 years old. He met her at her family's boarding house where he stayed while working on the railroad. Rosa's immigration record states she was born in Sieuliqua, Sardinia, but Great Uncle Sam believes his mother was born in Sicily. There is a record of Giovanni and Rosa's marriage in Tunis dated 1903 in the parish of St. Croix (Holy Cross).

9: Three children were born to Rosa and Giovanni in Tunis. Rosalia (Grandma) in 1902, baptism recorded in Rosaire parish; Giuseppa, also baptized in Rosaire, parish 1905; Salvatore, baptized in 1918, parish of Mateur. Children were baptized the day they were born or within days of their birth. Their daughter Carmela (Millie) and son John, were born in the USA. Giovanni (Dicara) 33, 5' 7", first arrived in the USA at the port of Philadelphia on the ship "Californie", which sailed from Havre, France, July 21, 1907. In the ship log, his occupation is listed as a mason; he left father Salvatore Dicara in "Tunis Place Morgena"; he was going to stay with his cousin Gaetano Danna, 2359 Atlantic, Brooklyn, NY; he had $10 in his pocket. Francesca DiCaro Pitisi, husband Vincenzo, and brother Giuseppe arrived at Ellis Island in 1908, and went to stay with an "Uncle Miazo Spataro Giuseppe" in Cumberland , Maryland. Her brother Giovanni was already there. It has been told that Giovanni, brother Giuseppe & their brother-in-law Vincenzo Pitisi left the East coast to travel out west to work in the mines around 1908 and did not return for many years. Francesca went back to Tunis at some point and did not attempt to return until 1913, at which time she was sent back to Tunis because of her daughter Maria's sickness. There is a census record that may be the three men in Jackson, Missouri in 1910. There is also a census record with the name Vincenzo "Pitici" in a boarding house in Las Animas, Colorado, weeks later that same year. One of the stories told for years was that Giuseppe, Giovanni & Vincenzo were at a saloon, a man came after one of them for fooling around with his daughter, so the men left out the back door, jumped on horses and escaped with just the clothes on their backs. It is not known exactly when the three men returned east, but it had to be by the year 1917. Great Uncle Sam DeCaro was born in early 1918 in Tunis so Giovanni had to have returned to Tunis by then. In piecing some facts together, it seems Giuseppe ended up in Pennsylvania from out west, where he may have met his wife Veronica (who was from the town of Boswell) and they had three of their four children there. Eventually, Giuseppe and his family settled in Johnston City, Illinois. | "Californie" | Ellis Island

10: Giovanni DiCaro arrived back to the USA from Tunis, at Ellis Island on the ship "France" on January 16, 1921 with daughters Rosalie, 18 and Giuseppina, 16. In the ship log information, it was noted that Giovanni previously arrived in the USA at the port of Philadelphia in 1906 & 1915. On this final trip to the USA, he left his wife Rosa Dicaro at 9 Tue Majoi, Tunis. He and his daughters were going to stay with Uncle Joseph Spataro, 35 William Street, Waterbury, Connecticut. Giovanni's occupation was listed as a workman; Rosalie & Giuseppina were listed as housewives. The family had $100. Rosa Santino DiCaro, 36, 4'10", arrived in the United States at the port in Providence, Rhode Island, on July 27, 1921 on the ship "Canada", which sailed from Marseilles, France on July 12th, 1921, with her son Salvatore, 3. In the ship log information, she was listed as a housewife, could not read or write, left her mother "Santino, Joseph", in Tunis at 9 Rue Majoy; was going to stay with her husband John Di Caro at 35 William Street, Waterbury, Connecticut; she had $20; Rosa's place of birth was listed as Sieuliqua, Italy. After Rosa's husband Giovanni died in 1928, her brother-in-law Joe & wife Veronica arranged for her to marry Jack Mitchell (Miceli) in Johnston City, Illinois. Jack had four children, Joe, Tony, Lena & Charlie (according to the 1930 census) in his care. Rosa was gone from Rochester by early 1930, She took Sam, Millie and John with her. Jack Mitchell turned out to be very abusive but Rosa stayed for many years. Sam came back to Rochester when he was about 17 and stayed with his sister Rosalie and other relatives; Millie met her husband Chet who was in the Navy in Illinois and eventually came back to Rochester. John left Illinois, joined the Army at the tail end of WWII and was in the South Pacific. He re-enlisted, went to Berlin, and stayed in the military until the mid 50s. Rosa came back to Rochester when she needed surgery and never went back to her husband, He came here to try to get her to go back to Illinois, but no one would let him take her back. She died in 1958 and is buried in Holy Sepulchre Cemetery under the name Rosa Mitchell.

12: Pitisi Family The Pitisi family was from the town of Mussomeli, Caltanasetta, Sicily. The earliest record has a Silvestre Pitisi in Mussomeli in the year 1681 listed as "Elenco alfabetico dei capi di casa", head of the household. All the family members born in Italy and Tunisia had last name spelled "Pitisi". It is not known when the spelling changed to "Petisi". There is a notice in the Rochester Daily Record dated August 20, 1935, with Paulo "Pitisi" obtaining an automobile license for a 1929 Olds Cch. Paolino Pitisi, born about 1822, married Maria Theresa Cicero, born about 1828, on May 28, 1848 in Mussomeli, Italy. Great Grandfather Vincent was the 7th child of Maria & Paolino. His birth name was Vincenzo "Maria". It is said that Italians sometimes gave their sons that middle name so the Blessed Mother would protect them. Vincent immigrated to Tunis (year unknown). He married Carmeline Orlando in the year 1896 in the parish of Ste Croix in Tunis. There is burial record in Tunis under "Carmela" Orlando in that same year. Vincent then married Great Grandmother Francesca DiCaro on November 1, 1898 in Ste Croix parish. The first child that was born to Francesca and Vincent of the six born in Tunis, was Maria (Great Aunt Mary) in 1899. She was baptized in the parish of Ste Croix that year. In the year 1901, a boy Paolo was born & baptized in the parish of Sacre Coeur, but only lived for a few days. Another boy named Paolo (PaPa) was born January 2, 1903, according to record of birth registered with the town of Mussomeli, Italy. Paolo's baptismal record is listed in Sacre Coeur parish. There were twin girls Angela & Rosalia, born June 3, 1905, but Angela was stillborn and Rosalie only lived for five days. Rosalie was baptized in Sacre Coeur parish. In October, 1906, Salvatore (Great Uncle Sam) was be born. He was baptized there in 1907, also in the parish of Sacre Coeur. Great Uncle Joe Petisi was born in the USA.

13: Francesca DiCaro Pitisi first came to the USA, at the age of 25, arriving at Ellis Island on January 26, 1908 on the ship "LaTouraine" with her brother Giuseppe DiCaro, 18, & her husband Vincenzo, 38. In the ship log information, it is stated Francesca left her father Salvatore DiCaro in Tunis and went to stay with Uncle Miazo Giuseppe Spataro, 205 Oak Street, Cumberland, Maryland. It was noted that Giuseppe was going to meet his brother Giovanni, at the same address. It is not known how long Francesca stayed in the USA, but Vincent joined brother-in-laws Giuseppe & Giovanni DiCaro on their journey out west around that time and the three men were gone for many years. Francesca made another journey to the USA arriving at Ellis Island in August, 1913 on the ship "Roma" with Maria, 12, Paolo 9, and Salvatore 5. It was stated in the ship log,that Francesca's husband Vincent was already in Rochester, her mother Rosalie Spataro was left in Tunis. It was also noted that Maria was hospitalized and they were then deported back to Tunis. Her final trip back to the USA was in January, 1921, on the ship "France" which sailed from LeHavre, France with sons Paolo 18, mechanic & Salvatore 14, a student. They left their sister Maria Manfre in Tunis. The ship log noted that Francesca was American by husband's papers dated January 29, 1918. Maria Pitisi (Great Aunt Mary) married Agostino Manfre in Tunis, parish of Sacre Coeur in 1921. They came to the United States, June 26, 1928 on the ship "Ile de France", with their son, Jean (John) 6, going to stay with brother-in-law Vincenzo Petisi, 253 Whitney Street, Rochester, New York. The 1930 Census had Vincent 67, occupation Glassworker, Francis 49, and Joseph 8, living on Whitney Street and Agostino, Mary & John Manfre living on the same street.

54: Papa & Grandma ~So many memories....Birthdays, holidays, & just being together. They never owned a home or a car but they had the best family. Who could forget the cookies, the lamb cookie jar...... | If her kids asked her for money, she would say "if I had a nickel, I would be in Paris"... The times spent playing pokeno for pennies...Papa singing his crazy Arab songs with a drink & a cigarette in his hand.

55: Everybody squashed in whatever apartment they lived in but no one noticed or cared... Bingo & trying to watch Papa's cards upside down.... The crocheted sweaters & dresses..... | The coucous that took all day to make... Grandma feeding the babies the "boddler" burping them so hard we thought their heads would snap....but they burped & their heads were fine
