Vincenzo Chimento emigrated to America by VINCENT DISPENZA

Traduci in ITALIANO

Vincenzo Chimento emigrated to America.  By navigating the internet, Margaret Chimento, who resides in Pueblo Colorado, discovered that her ancestors originated from the town of Alia, Sicily.

A year ago, Margaret Chimento discovered my name and my origin from the town of Alia.  After a first contact with me by e-mail and by telephone, Margaret was able to get in touch with her relatives in Alia for the first time in her life.
Rosolino Chimento, grandfather of Margaret Chimento, was born in Alia on December 24, 1864.  At a young age he emigrated to pursue a better life.
While in Louisiana he married Margherita Cascio on May 5, 1894, who was from the town of Montemaggiore Belsito.  Some of their children were born in Louisiana: Vincenzo, Gaetano and Cosimo.  After several years in Louisiana Rosolino Chimento made his decision to return to Alia where he worked as a farmer and resided at Via Santa Croce 14 until his death on March 6, 1964.
His son, Vincenzo, and his two brothers returned to America.  Vincenzo was 16 years old.  After he disembarked in New York, he moved to Pueblo, Colorado where he worked very hard as a farmer.  For a few years he went to work in New York  during the construction of the  sewer systerm under the city of New York.  He worked also as a bricklayer and a security guard until the age of 78.  He married Marta Pisciotta whose family came to America from Lucca Sicula, Sicily.

On July 10 of this year, Margaret came to Baton Rouge with her son, Jim and two  of her grandchildren, Connor and Cameron Martin.  The other grandson Brandon was attending a football camp hosted by the Manning brothers at the University of Thibodeaux, Louisiana, 70 miles south of Baton Rouge.  It was a
very interesting and emotional visit for my maternal grandfather’s name was also Vincenzo Chimento.

During the visit in Baton Rouge we contacted Margaret’s cousin in Alia, Margherita Mascarella Mendola.  For the first time in her life Margaret heard the voice of her relatives on the other side of the ocean.  It was a very emotional contact.

A contact by Skype was also made with Enrico Ticli, Web Master of Assarca, who made it possible for her to see the town of Alia by placing his Web Camera on the balcony of his house.

 

Margaret Chimento and her son, Jim, who works for the Police Department in Pueblo, and her grandchildren have a dream that one day they will visit Alia, the town of their ancestors.
