Pasquale Biele

Pascquale (or Patrick) emigrated from Italy and settled in northern New Jersey. Data on him and his family members are sprinkled throughout the Biele Records section.

I pieced together a great deal of the information on this family from newspaper obituaries and have tried to tie it together with the census and other records.

Pasquale is listed in the 1930 US Census as Patrick Biele, 33, of Wallington, New Jersey. Family members listed include a wife, Jennie (shown elsewhere as Giovannina), 22, a son Angelo, 3, a daughter Mary, 2, and a son Patrick, 6 months.


According to the Social Security records Pasquale was born June 11, 1895 and died December 1971 and Giovannina was born March 22, 1906 and died September 5, 1988. The following obituary gives an overview of the family:
