Notes for Teresa Caroline Pedroni
Brebbia is northwest of Milan and east of Lago di Maggiore, near the piece of Switzerland that sticks into Italy (Lugano).

28 February 1904 - Antonio Pedroni age 25, unmarried, arrived at Ellis Island going to the home of his brother-in-law Ambrogio Nangeroni at 143 W. 27th Street, New York. He said he had previously been in Boston from 1895-1900. On 2 April 1910 Ambrogio Pedroni age 27, married, arrived at Ellis Island and said he was joining his cousin Ambrogio Nangeroni at the same address.

At the time of the 1910 Census Ambrose and Teresa were living in New York.

1920 Census shows the family renting an apartment at 268 Norfolk Avenue, Dorchester.

1930 Census has them owning a home at 17 Eastman Street, Boston, living there with children, Marcella, 24 and married at age 23, Eleanora, 16, and Ambrose Jr., 8. It appears to be a 3 family house with 2 tenant families also. Ambrose is a cook in a restaurant and came to US 1893, she came in 1900. They have been married about 30 years, she was 18, he was 24. Apparently married in Italy shortly before 1900 trip to US.

August 1934 she sailed from Le Havre with son Ambrose and daughter Eleanora. Her place of birth is shown as Besozzo, Italy (just to the northeast of Brebbia).

1940 Census - still at 17 Eastman Street.
