Diego Arcadipane (About 1887 - 19??)


According to Ellis Island passenger records, Diego was born around 1887. He most likely was born in Favara, in the province of Girgenti, Sicily, Italy, as this was where his brother Salvatore Jr. was born.  During the reign of Mussoulini, the province of Girgenti was renamed to Agrigenti, which is its current name.

Diego sailed from Palermo, Italy on October 17, 1910 to the United States, arriving on November 14, 1910, traveling on the ship Konigin Luise.

Diego was in business for some time with his brother Guiseppe, running a Livery service.
