I am looking for any family for Paul Polito born on January 25, 1903 Amaroni,Italy, arrived on December 5, 1909, new york on the SS Verona with mother Teresa Muzzi Polito, lived in Hull ma, his fathers name was William Polito, I think he moved to San Francisco California and their he became a citizen, my records have Paul death August 1968 at the age of 65. No one in the family ever talked about him, when we asked about him they always changed the subject, he moved away I think in the 40's and was never heard from again. I would like to know if he was ever married and had children.He also had several sisters and brothers. please email if any one has any information. Thank you

According to Polk's 1967 San Francisco directory:

Polito Paul H143 Somerset St

No wife is listed.

It's implied that he owned the house (he wasn't renting -- that would be "R" not "H") so there should be additional records on that.

This is interesting:

He might be his son or he's still listed in the property records.
