Marriages & Families – Antonio Lauria and Mary Ambruso

Maria Giuseppa Ambruso arrived in the USA with her mother and sister and brother in May of 1901.  She was 6 years old at the time.  They all were headed to Maria’s father, Giuseppe, who was just getting settled in Philadelphia.  In 1913, at the age of 18, she married Antonio Lauria.  Antonio was born in 1892 in Cosenza, Italy.  He was a barber.  They had five children: Ralph (b. 1914), Margaret (b. 1916), Marie (b. 1917), Joseph (b. 1922), and Anthony Jr. (b. 1927).

According to the 1920 U.S. Census, they originally lived at 917 Daly Street.  The family later moved to 1438 Porter Street and then moved to Upper Darby, just west of Philadelphia.  Antonio died in April of 1964.  At this point we don’t know much about Maria Ambruso Lauria.  If any relative has any more information, please contact me and I will add it to this posting.
