About Giovanni Allegrina

Giovanni Allegrina was born between 1864 - 1865 in probably Dernice, Alessandria, Piedmont, Italy or San Sebastiano Curone, Alessandria, Piedmont, Italy. He married Giuseppina Franco.

Giovanni is also known as John Allegrina. He migrated to America 01 April, 1905.

Manifest records show Giovanni arrived on La Lorraine Ship and traveled with his brother Eduardo Allegrina age 47, who was married and a farmer and Eduardo's son Fausto Allegrina age 15.

Giovanni was 40 years old when he arrived in America, he was married and his occupation in Dernice was farming. He stayed with his son Fiorentino Allegrina in Detroit, Michigan.

All three Allegrina men are shown on the manifest as being from Dernice, Italy. Both Eduardo and Fausto Allegrina went to stay Felice Martignone (Felix Martignone) of Ann Arbor, Michigan, who is listed as Eduardo's cousin. Giovanni Allegrina stayed with his son Fiorentino Allegrina in Detroit, Michigan. This was their first trip to America.

It was determined that Eduardo Allegrina and Giovanni Allegrina are brothers, both sons of Giovanni Allegrina and their mother's last name was possibly Martignone (probably an Aunt of Felice Martignone).

Giovanni Allegrina (John Allegrina) was born between 1864-1865 in Dernice, Alessandria, Piedmont, Italy. He married Guiseppina Franco.

  • 1910: Giovanni Allegrina (John Allegrina) is found living in Three Rivers, Michigan. Fiorentino Allegrina is now referred to as Frank Allegrina who is also found living in Three Rivers, Michigan the same year. Living with Frank Allegrina is his wife Rose Friella-Allegrina, Daughter Josephine Allegrina, son Louis Allegrina, and father Giovanni Allegrina (John Allegrina) who is now 46 years old. Both father and son are working as Moulders. 
Giovanni "John" Allegrina and Giuseppina Franco had the following children:

ANDREW ALLEGRINA was born in 1887. He married (1) MARGARET. She was born about 1897 in New York. He married (2) ANGELINA. She was born about 1891 in Italy.

FIORENTINO "FRANK" ALLEGRINA was born on 30 Jul 1887 in San Sebastiano Curone, Alessandria, Piemonte, Italy. He died on 04 Nov 1971 in Mount Clemens, Macomb, Michigan, United States.

I have read other blogs and post that indicate Giovanni Allegrina  and Eduardo Allegrina may be the son's of Giovanni Allegrina Sr. and his mother's last name was Martignone. If this is true, she may be the Aunt to Felice Martignone (Felix Martignone) who is the cousin Eduardo and his son Fausto stayed with when he arrived in America.
