Pacentrani who emigrated in April 1890

May 3, 2017

The S. S. Moravia, a vessel owned and operated by the Hamburg America Line, was built in Glasgow, Scotland on 1883 and launched on its first voyage in November of that same year. Weighing 3,739 gross tons and containing one funnel and two masts, the ship accommodated 100 - 1st class passengers and 1,200 - 2nd class passengers (Norway Heritage, 2017).

 

On April 15, 1890, the S.S. Moravia sailed from the Ports of Hamburg, Germany and LeHavre, France on its journey to New York City. Included among the names on the ship's manifest were 62 men from the village of Pacentro, all of whom were listed as 'workmen' bound for the "United States of America" (Ancestry.com, 2017).  While the men are not identified as being from Pacentro, the manifest provides a column with the heading "The country from which one is a citizen" and a line of '62 dittos' under the word "Italian". Reading the first ten names of this list was the major clue that each of these men emigrated from the village of Pacentro. Then, as I scanned the remaining names, it became unquestionable about their village of origin.

 

Here is the list of all 62 Pacentrani men aboard the S.S. Moravia with their assigned passenger numbers:
