Country of Origin: Italy

My name is John Fusaro. I was born in San Sosti, Italy. I came to America in the year of 1907. I was only 9 years old when I came here. I came on this voyage with my mother and my sister. My aunt and uncle were waiting for us there at Ellis Island. I settled in Germintown, Pennsylvania. I came here because my family was so poor in Italy. I started to work at the age of 14. My father was not with us because he died in Brazil when I was just a baby, I didn't know him.
