joseph came to louisiana 11-19-1888 age 9 with his family. he married Lolita Federico they had a son, my father gordon joseph federico 12-4-1917. family history says he was an only child. Lolita is believed to have been adopted and lived in iowa. her adopted mother and father died before she was 16 and she was living with her oldest sister and she and her husband died by her 22nd birthday. how she got to new orleans we dont know. there are several joseph federicos in the family so it is hard to seperate them out. sometime after 1925 they moved to new york city where lolita died jan 1948 and joseph died in 1957 in Middleburgh, NY when i was 7. maybe they never married? i cant find her death certificate either.

we have since found this info to be incorrect. Lolitas name was Richardson not richmond and her parents were James Richardson and Elizabeth Fernandez we still dont have a wedding certificate and are not sure were she was born
we have new updated info, joseph Marie federico arrive 11-17-1884 with his father and mother and 4 siblings, his age was listed as 0 so he must have been born in 1884

in 1920 census it shows joseph, lolita and gordon living at 122 north lopez.. this info is the most accurate that i have.  i have his certificate of vaccination from board of health in New orleans on august 22 1923 living at 122 north lopez st. in 1930 they had moved to NY, i have notice that gordon j federico and his mother was confirmed as a holy catholic on palm sunday 1930 in the city of new york. my problem is it shows gordon, lolita and gordon (ages not correct) and 5 other siblings all over 10 years of age. and i can not find any other joseph, lolita or gordon in ny city? my brother did a family search for college and that is where we got the info that lolita was born in mexico and was adopted, but we dont know where he got the info, thanks for your help

Lolita appears to have married a John Thompson in 1903, Kansas before she married Joseph Federico.  So she may have been a Thompson when she married your grandfather. 

You might try searching for her or their marriage record with the last name Thompson.

1903 marriage record:
