Crisileo country of origin
The Crisileo family name can be traced back to Gattinara, Italy. Part of the Crisileo family came to America by ship (La Provence) leaving the port of Le Havre. Mario Crisileo (28), Maria Crisileo (23), Ettore Crisileo (3) and Pasquale Crisileo (1) came to America on June 24th, 1912. This voyage, along with several others around this time period, had a lot more reluctance to board due to the (then) recent Titanic sinking. Many families cancelled their trips, and this became good news for the Crisileo family, as they may not have been able to go otherwise.
