Salvatore & Maria's son's Pasquale's birth act from 1884 in Santo Stefano, bottom left

Born at 11:48 AM on 8 Dec 1884 in a house at Via ?
Father Salvatore, son of the living Pasquale, age 28, a "borgese"--middle class person?
Mother, Maria Mortellaro, daughter of the deceased Angelo

This gives us the father's names of both Salvatore and Maria.

Yes, my great grandmother's name was Maria Cacciatore. I took a trip to Ybor city and have several photos of the grave site if anyone is interested. Thanks for the info on Salvatore's father!

There's a Maria M. Cacciatore also buried there whose birth and death dates are closer to your initial post. Middle initial M for Mortellaro??

Is this your great grandparents' 1900 census? Line 77 and following.

Salvador Caccetore Head M Italy
Maria Caccatore Wife F Italy
Pasqual Caccetore Son M Italy
Maria Caccetore Daughter F Italy
Angelo Caccetore Son M Italy
Phulepa Filippa) Caccetore Daughter F Florida
Josephina Caccetore Daughter F Florida


If so based on the birth act of Pasquale above, it follows the naming conventions--first son named after paternal grandfather--Pasquale; second son after maternal grandfather Angelo; first daughter after paternal grandmother, Maria Giuseppa, second daughter after maternal grandmother, Filippa.

Thank you so much. My grandfather is Joseph who was not born until later in 1900. I have the 1900 census. So kind of you all to help. Sad that I found info on Joe through Maffia.com LOL. Guess we all have a bad apple somewhere in the barrel. Joe married Martha but they had no children. She divorced his because of extreme abuse. I did find my father's half sister Yvonne after 50 years. He had a photo of her in her christening when she was about 3. She knew of a photo of my father when he was in high school band. When I called them, it was like an Oprah Winfrey moment. You could hear the excitement rising as I asked questions to a stranger about her father, Cacciatore. She and her daughter flew to meet my father and they had about 5 good years before she passed away from Parkinson. When my dad first saw her, he hugged her and you could see so many emotions lifted off both of them. You are all the BEST. God Bless

Meant to say Joe and Martha had one daughter, who is my father's half sister. My father was the illegitimate son of Joe

If the 1856 birth record for Salvatore, parents Pasquale and Maria Giuseppa Peninno, is correct. He had at least 4 sisters Teresa Maria, Andrea, Rosalia and Maria.

Andrea, born 15 Aug 1850

Maria, born 7 Sep 1853

Teresa Maria, born 29 Jan 1848

Rosalia, born 3 Jun 1845

I'm trying to locate Salvtore and Maria Mortellaro's marriage act which will have their parents' names.

What is the difference in the names Salvatore and Salvador? I know the first means Sam. These names are a real learning lesson

There is no difference. Both mean Sam. Italians use use Salvatore more, while those in Argentina, Brazil and even North America might use Salvator.
