Birth: Feb. 14, 1854
Basilicata, Italy
Death: Sep. 26, 1922

Hudson County
New Jersey, USA

Vincent (Vincenzo) Cafarelli was born in Ferrandina, Matera province, Basilicata, Italy, on 14 February 1854 to Domenico Cafarelli of Ferrandina and Maria Gaetana Mastronardi of Craco, Matera province. He was a farmer and stone mason, lived and worked for a while in Stigliano, Matera province, and married Grazia Sarubbi in her hometown of Accettura, Matera province, on 28 February 1876. Vincenzo immigrated to New York with his eldest son Domenico, arriving on 27 April 1886 aboard the S.S. St. Laurent. He returned to Italy several times and brought Grazia and their other children to the U.S. in 1893, arriving aboard the S.S. Chanadernagor on 21 June. He worked as a stone mason in the U.S., died on 26 September 1922, and was buried two days later.

Sources for this information include Vincent's original birth record from Ferrandina, his original marriage record from Accettura, the ships' passenger lists, his original New Jersey death certificate, and cemetery records. This biographical sketch, posted to on 29 June 2012, is based on original research and was authored in 2012 by Lesley K. Cafarelli. It may be used for personal or professional, non-commercial genealogical research purposes provided that it is used in its entirety and accompanied by a full source citation crediting the author and this memorial page.

Additional note: I am trying to locate descendants and other relatives of Vincent and Grace (Sarubbi) Cafarelli with whom I have not already connected, including members of the Aliano, Belmonte, DePierro, and Garone families. Please contact me via if you have information. Thank you.
