RODIA Luigi Antonio
Birth:          20 Apr 1884 Serino, Avellino, Italy

Burial:         Holy Sepulchre Cemetery, Cheltenham, Pa.

on 8 May 1911 on the Duca Degli Abruzzi arrives the following:
Rodia Luigi, 24, farmer, where lived with mother Carmina
I cannot find Luigi Rodia (using variant spellings), so perhaps he also went back to Italy with Pietro (except 
there is no passport application for him). In 1930 I find Luigi Rodia, 1724 7th St, divorced, a real estate 
dealer, born in Italy, arrived in the US in 1911. That must be him. The mystery of where he is in 1920 may 
be solved by this entry from the Sept 22 1922 Philadelphia Inquirer: "Court of Common Pleas No 2 for the 
County of Philadelphia. Order of Publication in Divorce. To Rosina Rodia, late of Chicago, Ill. Whereas Louis 
A. Rodia, your husband, has filed a libel in the Court of Common Pleas No. 2 of Philadelphia Co. of June 
Term. 1922, No. 433 praying a divorce against you. Now you are hereby notified and required to appear in 
said Court on or before Monday, the 2nd day of October next, to answer the complaint of the said Louis A. 
Rodia, and in default of such appearance you will be liable to have a divorce granted in your absence. 
Robert E. Lamberton, Sheriff of Philadelphia." Not him. There's another Luigi Rodia, probably a cousin.
