1903 Boston MA Death of Luigi Sacco From Montemiletto

1903 Boston death record of Luigi "Louis" Sacco



1903 Boston MA Death; Page: 440; Registered Number: 9142
Date Filed: 12 November 1903
Name: Louis Sacco
Place of Death: Boston City Hospital
Residence: 100 Leverett Street, Boston
Date of Death: 10 November 1903
Age: 40

Birthplace: Italy
Father: Angelo Sacco, born Italy
Mother:  Maria Grazia "Culella" (Colella), born Italy
Primary Cause of Death: Fracture Spine (3 Weeks)
Contributory Cause of Death: Exhaustion (2 Weeks)
Admitted to hospital on 22 October 1903
Burial: Malden Holy Cross
Undertaker: Jos. A. Langone


Luigi's wife, daughters Maria and Maria Grazia, parents Angelo Antonio Sacco and Maria Grazia Colella, and brother Angelo Michele Sacco all came to the States on board the SS Republic on 22 March 1904.  Click here for the manifest.   The timing would make it seem that they were coming over to bury him.  What a long, sorrowful crossing that must have been.

We've uncovered four children for Luigi and Maria Giuseppa di Fronzo.  

1.  Daughter Maria Sacco, born circa 1882, married Vespiano Colella, son of Gaetano Colella and Margherita Pagliuca.

2.  Son Leopoldo Sacco, born 13 May 1885 in Montemiletto, married Antonia Vaccaro and settled in Medford, working as an optician.

3.  Son Angelo Antonio Sacco, born circa 1887 in Montemiletto, married Angiolina Colella.  Angiolina was the sister of Vespiano Colella and the two Sacco siblings married two Colella siblings.

4.  Daughter Maria Grazia Sacco, born circa 1890 in Montemiletto, married Gennaro Bonito in Boston in 1911.
