Is the town in NY Albion, in Orleans county?

If so, have you seen the 1910 census, recorded as Dan Chico, 27 Italy, wife Rachael 25 Italy, wed 5 yrs, both say arrived 1905, Elenor 3 NY, Philip 2 NY, and an unnamed daughter, 2 mos (born abt Feb-Mar 1910.

You may want to explore this web site

Under the topic Look-Ups, there is a volunteer who will look in Vital Statistics for Deaths, but if I understand it correctly, it is an index, but it should provide the date you seek. At that same web site there is an index of the names in cemeteries that you can explore also.

My guess is that the parents passed away during the Spanish Influenza (which actually began at a military base in Kansas!) 1918-1919ish. This could be Phillip and Elena and the baby with no name in the 1910 census in the 1920 census

They were living at the "German Roman Catholic Orphanage Asylum"

Of course neither Dan nor Rachel are Italian names. But there are is a couple arriving at the Port of NY 1905 > June > 23 > aboard the ship Konigin Luise
He is Gaetano age 24 and she is Adelina age 21 destination Cleveland

Could this be your Dan and Rachel?

Also the link the other poster gave finds Dicicco in Cemetery records.

Have you seen this web site about the orphanage that Robert posted about?

It says that at the German Roman Cathoic Orphanage there was a fire March 1919, as well as fires in 1941 and 1956. It is a nice web site with lots of photos.

I think it is very possible that the 1910 and 1920 cenus data posted are your family. I have found that names beginning we De-and Di-, followed by a capital letter can be recorded wrong. And unless you can find the Dan and Rachel Chico on the 1920 census, it adds credance to your relationship. The only way to be certain is to send for copies of their death certificates. As Robert said, the flu was a cause of death in that era, and if they had no local family to erect a tombstone, there will likely be no cemetery record.

My hunch is that this family came to the USA via Canada. There is an Ellis Island record of a Domenico DiCicco arrived 8/15/1913 going to his brother Felix in Guelf Canada
