See photos. (#30) Arcangela sailed on the Canopic leaving Naples Jan 19 1917 and arriving in Boston Feb 13 1917. She is listed as 21 years old, from Casalvecchio, with her father, Michele, there and going to Milford MA to stay with her cousin Maria FRATTA who lived in Milford on 19 Spring St.
Also on board is 19 year old Giuseppina BULSO (#17) from Casalvecchio who listed no one as a nearest relative at home but also lists her cousin Maria FRATTA who lived in Milford on 19 Spring St. as her destination.
(#26 - #28) are 37 year old Maria D'AlOIA and her children (Matteo & Gino BRUNETTI) going to Milford to be with her husband Antonio BRUNETTI.
(#24) is 22 year old Maria ORSOGNA with her father Matteo left behind in Casalvecchio, going to Baltimore, Maryland to stay with her cousin Carmela TOSCHES who lived there at 3806 Cleveland St. (I had beeen unaware of the Casalvecchio-Baltimore connection until I was contacted at https://www.italiangenealogy.com/forum by a descendant of a Casalvecchio CELOZZI branch. I will try to keep Baltimore on the radar more!)

I haven't located any information that I'm confident in. If Arcangela did not become a citizen, she may not have been registered in Social Security. She is still alive and listed on Michele's 1942 WWII Draft.
The only 'hit' I get is the Death Certificate listed below-the birth date is slightly off and I'm unsure of the location...? I've left the data lines above empty until I have more clarification.
