My great grandfather was Loreto Paolini. He was born in Castelvecchio Subequo, L'Aquila. He came to Ellis Island on March 13, 1899 at the age of 23 and went on to Philadelphia. The ship manifest spelled his name incorrectly as Paolino.
He later settled in Mount Carmel, Pennsylvania with his wife Maria Bianchi. They had 4 daughters all born in PA. He passed away sometime between 1910-1912 while his wife and daughters went back to Castelvecchio for a visit. I am searching for any info on the exact date or at least the year Loreto passed away and where he may be buried as my dad would love to go see his grandfather's gravesite.
Loreto had siblings that came to Pennsylvania as well. They are Domenica Paolini born March 26, 1866 who married Giuseppe Aterno.
Pasquale who was born 8/23/1870 and Vincenza Paolini orn 8/5/1873.
