Well. I need a little help.

My great grandfather Benedetto Maola. Came to the unites states three times before he passed.

Benedetto Maola born Jan. 23, 1881
Died Jan 28, 1925

1st time in U.S. was 1901

2nd time in U.S. 1909
www.ellisisland.org/se...630130111&

3th time in U.S. 1913
www.ellisisland.org/se...668100514&

Here his death certificate:


His name was of course changed a couple of times.

Ben Marlo
Ben Maolo

I was looking for a census on him. I have looked in the pass but no luck.

Can someone is if they can find anything?

Thank you

Vincenza

Carole, I found this one too and I think Vincenza says that may be another Ben Marlo who married a Catherine. If he shows up in the 1930 Census (I haven't looked yet) then it isn't him since Vincenza's relative died in 1925. If you have the chance, can you look or I will do it once I'm done here...

Thanks!

thanks Carol,

That Ben Marlo, is not the same person that I'm looking for. I have Ben and Catherine marriage certificate. And to my knowledge that another person.

And about the draft card. I was not able to click on it.

Thanks for looking.

Vincenza

I'm sorry but I don't know how to show this to you - but I have found the Draft Card for Ben MOOLA (very poor writing - might be Maola)
Born in Italy 23 Jan. 1881. Living in Cook Co (I think)

Thes are the Ancestry search details:

Military Records > World War I Draft Registration Cards, 1917-1918 > Illinois > Chicago City > 77 > Draft Card M

It is showing Page 385 of 494

Even if it's not him - at least I'm learning something as I look!
