July of 1921 the family had moved to New Jersey. The seventh
Nasuti child, Donato "Daniel" Nasuti, was born in New
Jersey on July 23rd of that year. The next two children,
Natalie and Rocco were both born in New Jersey. The family,
however, does not appear in the 1924 or 1927 Camden City
Directories. The Nasutis first moved to Sewell
Street, a bit
east of Federal
Street on Marlton Avenue. Antoinette Nasuti's brother, Joe
Breghella was in Camden by 1919. Single and boarding on Howell
Street in January of 1920, Joe Breghella, who had come to
America in 1907, soon married and with his wife Frances by 1924
had moved to 420 North
27th Street, where they operated a small grocery store
through at least 1930, before moving to West Collingswood.
"James" Nasuti and family do appear in the 1929 City
Directory and the 1930 United States Census at 791 East State
Street. Vincenzo Nasuti had found employment with the
Pennsylvania Railroad, which operated the Pavonia railroad
switching yard and repair shops in East Camden. 791 East State
Street was a farmhouse that was located near the gatehouse where
the railroad tracks crossed State
Street.... this was long before the bridge, or
"hump" as it's called locally, was built over the
tracks. Vincenzo Nasuti's job was to raise and lower the gate
for the trains passing through. While living here, he farmed
some of the land on State
Street, growing tomatoes, peppers, and corn.
Nasutis eventually relocated to 25
North 25th Street in East Camden.
When they first moved to North 25th Street they did not feel
welcome, since they were Italian. One of the neighbors
considered a petition against them moving in. Vincenzo built a
wagon to bring the produce he was still growing on State Street
back home to his family and neighbors. He eventually won the
friendship and respect of the neighborhood.
Nasuti's draft card from 1942 shows the North 25th Street
address. A photograph below from the 1960s shows Antoinette at
her kitchen table on North 25th Street.
Nasuti family was still living at 25 North 25th Street
as 1970, Beatrice Nasuti being listed in the New Jersey Bell
Telephone Directories at that address from 1956 through that
year. By 1977 she had left North 25th Street
