Hi all, I've also posted this on Edmondo's Italian Genealogy site.
I've been helping a friend of mine, Dom Cicco, locate information on his grandparents but have hit a wall on locating his grandfather's WWII Draft card and his grandmother's ship manifest. For reference, I've posted their 1930 census record as well as his ship manifest. In 1921 Domenico emigrated from San Mango d'Aquino, the same town as my grandfather, and would eventually settle in Carbondale PA, the same town where my grandfather lived. Dom lived around the corner from us so Dom and I are not only fellow Coal Cracker Carbondaleans we're also paesani.
Just an educated guess on my part but I believe that Katherine was also from San Mango. If you check the 1930 census below, you'll see that the Cicco's were living at the same address as the Joseph Torch(ia) family. I'm waiting to hear from my friend to see what if any relationship there was between Joseph Torch(ia) and Katherine Torchia. The section of Scranton where all were living was heavily settled by people from San Mango. I've also found naturalization records for Domenico and one of the witnesses was another sanmanghese, Carmine Puteri, who is also on the 1930 census page. I've located Joseph Torch(ia)'s WWII draft card which shows him at the same address and his place of birth as San Mango d'Aquino.

One note on his destination. I believe it should have been recorded as 181 Belmont St, Carbondale PA, not New York, NY.
