Marriages & Families - Ottavia and Nicholas Sassano

Lucia Ottavia Francesca Ambruso was born in Salandra in 1903.  She came to America with her brother, sisters and mother in 1923 and went to the Bonelli house in Garfield, NJ.  She married Nicola (Nicholas) Sassano at Our Lady of Mount Virgin Church in Garfield in July of 1925.  The church record mentions that they were also married in a civil ceremony about a month earlier.  Nicholas was born in Salandra in 1904, and came to the USA in 1920.  He must have known Ottavia from Salandra.  Nicholas was living in Queens, New York at the time, so they moved there after the wedding.  He worked as a cabinetmaker.  They never had any children.
