Pasquale Antonecchia

Pasquale Antonecchia first appears in the Painesville, Ohio, area in 1902.  He was probably a migratory worker.  He immigrated to the United States to support his family in Italy.  Pasquale periodically returned to his home, and family, in Italy. Pasquale lived in Painesville from 1902 to 1908 and from 1912 to sometime in the 1920’s.

Pasquale Antonecchia was born about 1871, at Casalciprano, Italy.  He married Giuseppa Battista about 1900 at Italy.  Giuseppa probably did not migrate to the United States

Pasquale Antonecchia first immigrated to the United States on April 27, 1892, travelling to New York City, New York.  He made at least two additional trips (in 1896 and 1912) from Italy to the United States.

In 1912, Pasquale returned to Painesville joining his uncle, Donato Antonio Lombardi.  Pasquale previously lived in Painesville, Ohio, from 1902 to 1908. 

Pasquale Antonecchia was enumerated for the 1920 Census of the United States, on January 9, 1920, living at Fairport-Nursery Road, Painesville Township, Lake County, Ohio, as a boarder of Felix Giusta.  Pasquale was recorded as a laborer on a farm (most likely the Storrs and Harrison Nursery).  Felix Giusti’s wife, Armonia Lombardi, was Pasquale’s first cousin.

Pasquale Antonecchia was probably related to other Painesville Italians, Manfredo Antonecchia and Gennaro Antonecchia.
