Trying to locate immigration info as well as any info prior to his arrival in Brazos County, TX.
He seemed to be a well educated man as he is credited with several patents & his drawings are very detailed, and the writings he provided are that of someone who is very well educated.

#5: Re: Fortunato Clemente Zanetti Author: Camlar2955, Posted: Tue Oct 01, 2013 7:52 am ---- I have come to a dead end on locating my grandfather's immigration to the US and his possible return to Italy and death there. His name is Salvatore Cimo from Alia, Sicily, and was born on feb. 24, 1883. I am happy to say that Livio on this site was able to provide info on Salvatore's parents and I have attempted to pick up the trail but am having no luck. Any suggestions? Grazie!
