  • Notes 
    • PETER JOHN BERTUCCI 1870-1942


      From the 1900 US Federal Census of 4th Precinct, New Orleans City, Ward 11, Orleans, Louisiana:
      *Peter Bertucci, head, aged 30, married 5 years, one child living, born in August 1870 in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, of Italian parents, float driver;
      Nellie BERTUCCI, wife, aged 29, born in November 1871 in Mississippi of Ohio and Kentucky born parents, seamstress;
      Laura Roux, sister-inlaw, aged 37, married 10 years, mother of 1 child, born in December 1863 in Mississippi, seamstress;
      Knolan Roux, nephew, aged 5, born in January 1895 in Louisiana.

      Peter BERTUCCI met Kerenhappuck HANSEN whilst he was living in New York City, USA. It seems that Peter and Karen's brother worked together and had several of their inventions patented - a game known as badmitten now but known as the button game then; a music leaf turner, a flavoring extract, and a salve to name but a few. Peter was also acquainted with Andrew CARNEGIE.
      (Email from Ronnie BERTUCCI 2 May 2014)

      Peter John BERTUCCI and Kerenhappuck HANSEN were married according to the Rite of the Catholic Church at the Saint Bernard Church on West 14th street, New York City, on 15 March 1919. Witnesses were Tobias PURCELL and Mary CARROLL.

      According to Ronnie BERTUCCI his grandfather was a wealthy man by the turn of the century with investments in gold and oil companies. He lost his fortune in the Wall Street crash of 1927.

      From the 1940 US Federal Census:
      *Peter BERTUCCI, head, aged 71, married, born New Orleans, Louisiana;
      Keren BERTUCCI, wife, aged 75, married, born in England.

      From an unidentified newspaper cutting:
      "BERTUCCI - At 2380 St. Claude street, Sunday, September 13, 1942, at 8 o'clock a. m., KEREN EDGOOSE, beloved wife of the late Peter BERTUCCI; aged 78 years, a native of London, England.
      Funeral service will be held on September 14, 1942, at 2 o'clock p. m. from the funeral home of Lamana-Panno-Failo, Inc., 625 North Rampart street near Municipal Auditorium. Services at St. Louis Cathedral on Chartres and St. Anne streets.
      Interment in St. Patriuck Cemetery No.....
      London, England, papers please copy."

      The registers of St. Patrick's No. 1 Cemetery in New Orleans, Louisiana, USA, record the burial on 14 September 1942 of Kerin BERTUCCI aged 78 (i.e. born in 1863 or 1864). The online index records her as Karen Kerennaapuch (sic) EDGOOSE. According to the same online index Peter John BERTUCCI had been buried in the same grave on 23 August 1942 aged 74 (Cemetery P1, Section 5, RHS on Fence Aisle).

      NOTES & QUERIES:
      "Mary LAWLESS was Peter and Karen's (sic) neighbour. She took care of them in their later years. It is in her family's crypt that they are buried. This information came from Mary LAWLESS's son who is now deceased, but I had spoken with him prior to his death and he remembered both Peter and Karen. Karen was a home maker and Peter sold produce from a vending cart in the French Quarter. I do not know when they moved to New Orleans, LA. Karen was older than Peter and died within two weeks of his passing in 1942. My oldest half sister Barbara remembers them. She was 10 years old when they died."

      "I found a patent for the salve dated 29 August 1905 to Charles Sophus Thorwald HANSEN and he was residing in Philadelphia."
