Giuseppi “Joseph“ Lima

The following information was curated by Katherine Amato-von Hemert in 2005:

Giuseppi Lima is listed on the passenger manifest of the S.S. San Guglielmo sailing from Napoli, Italy 1, September 1914 and arriving Ellis Island on October 15, 1914 1.  Lima was 16 years old and traveled in second class and claimed Cleveland, Ohio as his final destination in 1914. He did not have transportation beyond New York but was planning to join his brother, Salvatore Lima, who lived at 2959 (or possibly 2759) E. 1st in Cleveland.

16-year-old Giuseppi was described by the US immigration officer as five feet four inches in height with a fair complexion, brown eyes and hair and a scar on his forehead.  Lima’s occupation was noted as “labourer,” he was able to read and write, and his nationality was listed as “Italy, South Italy” Trabia.  Palermo is listed as Lima’s place of birth and Trabia, Sicily was his most recent permanent residence.

Listed on the manifest just ahead of Guiseppi appears to be a relative with whom he was likely traveling, Pietro Lima.  Pietro was also 16 years old, he was a barber, able to read and write and his father in Trabia was Antoinio Lima.  Pietro’s final destination was his brother, Antonia Lima’s home in Johnstown, Pennsylvania.

Michael Stebbins adds:

The Scaduto name is still (as of 2017) quite prominent in Bagheria Sicily and is attached to the local university, two cathedrals, and a significant estate or villa.  Inquiries about the family name with locals in Bagheria in 2012 yielded careful answers such as, “Your family was known to be generous…. building schools, cathedrals, and… helping the community.”  When asked what business the family practiced, there was generally a thoughtful pause and smile, and then answer, “Lemons.  Your family had orchards of… Lemons.”

My great grandmother (Nana) Tina recorded her memories of Bagheria in an audio interview describing the family home in Bagheria (magnificent tiles, three stories) childhood trips to swim in the sea, her migration in 1911 (or 1912) to meet her sister in the New York, and her eventual migration to Lodi, California and life in the US.
