The Ships

by  Phyllis Zeck

Pietro Del Principe arrived in New York on the passenger ship called the Belgravia on May 21, 1891.

The Belgravia

He arrived with someone named M. Del Principe according to the ships manifest.

Who was M. Del Principe?  There are rumors that Pietro had a son before he married Elvira.  Was this his son?  Was he a cousin or brother?  I don’t find any record of him in the census, if only I knew his full first name!

Elvira Ciolli Del Principe arrived on the Weser on Aug 21, 1893.  Antonio age 4, Giuseppe age 3, and Amelio age 2 arrived with her.  Elvira’s brothers

The Weser

Carmino and Emilo arrived in 1890 aboard the ship called The Britannia.
