Abstract
Paul (Paolo) LaTorraca emigrated from Naples, Italy, on the Calabria vessel, and arrived at Brooklyn's Pier 29 in New York City, on May 15, 1908. He settled in Newark, New Jersey, where his sister, Victoria Auroma, resided. His wife, Luigia Del Bagno died in 1930. The two had three children: Philomena LaTorraca Cunha; Mary LaTorraca; and Lucy LaTorraca. LaTorraca, who could not speak English, was reliant on his daughter, Mary, to assist in the completion of naturalization forms.
