Giuseppa (Josephine) Sullo - Marrone (1884)

 Birth Act of Giuseppa Sullo

Giuseppa Sullo was born at 2:30 am on the morning of 29 November 1884 in Torre le Nocelle to Achille Sullo, a carpenter and Maria Filomena Ardolino.

She emigrated to the States on 27 April 1904 on board the Republic from Naples to Boston.  You'll find the post for that particular manifest here.  She was headed to her father Achille at 84 Swanton Street in Winchester, MA.

On 23 October 1906 she entered into holy wedded bliss (hokay, perhaps just wishful thinking on my part, but the coffee's hot, the air is crisp and it's too early in the day for anyone to have screwed it up yet, so I'm gonna' go with it) with Giuseppe Marrone of Teramo, Abruzzo, Italy.  1906 Boston marriage index below.

Here's a prettier view of Holland Street.  It's actually right around the corner 
from Swanton Street - where Giuseppa first settled with her father.

And in 1930 we find they've moved to 5 Marion Street, also in Winchester.

Line 17: Marroni, Joseph, head, age 50, married at age 27, emigrated 1907, naturalized, masonry contractor
Line 18: Marroni, Josephine, wife, age 45, married at age 22, emigrated 1904, naturalized
Line 19: Marroni, Antoinette, daughter, age 20, single, banking bookkeeper
Line 20: Marroni, Philomena, daughter, age 19, single, banking bookkeeper
Line 21: Marroni, Mario, son, age 17, born in Italy, emigrated 1912, naturalized, mason
Line 22: Marroni, Americo, son, age 14

Some time after March 1913 Giuseppa takes a trip home to Torre.  Perhaps she was returning to visit family and didn't yet realize she was pregnant, but she gives birth to Mario there and returns to the States with one more child than she went over with. 

I can't imagine spending two weeks cooped up on a boat with an infant and two toddlers ...  the woman must have had the patience of Job.
