Shared note

Could he be the Giaccomo, carp. employed at the T. H. Foley Lumber Company and boarding with the Nicolo Alessandro family who was listed in the 1904-1905 Pueblo, Colorado City Directory? A Gioachino was on the 1900 Iowa census where it appears that his brother Victor was listed.

He died at the ice plant. He was buried in an unmarked grave in the Bruce Daniel family plot.

Texas State Death Certificate: He was Jack Alessandro, residing at 807 S. 7th St., Waco, Texas. The place of death was the Geyser Ice Company Garage, Waco, McLennan, Texas. He was a white male, single, born 20 Dec 1886 in Italy. He was an auto mechanic. His parents were Nick M. Alessandro, born in Italy, and Anna Alessandro, also born in Italy. Joseph Alessandro was the informant. He died 2 May 1929 at 5 PM. The cause of death was (unreadable word) automobile accident. The contributory cause was that he cranked a truck while it was in gear and was pinned to the wall. He was buried 3 May 1929 at Oakwood Cemetery in Waco.

Census: 1900; Census Place: Le Claire, Scott, Iowa; Roll: T623 458; Page: 7A; Enumeration District: 142 There was a large group of men boarding together. One was named Victore Alessandro, and might have been his brother. 162/171, Alessandro, Gioachino, boarder, w, m, 1883, 17, s, Italy, Italy, 1892, 8, al appears to have been scratched out, serviceing Could this have been Jack? Jack is not with his parents in Louisiana at that time. Jack would have been a bit young to have been employed in this manner, but it would be possible, and ages might have been altered. More research needed.

Man Crushed to Death By Truck Against Wall Waco, Texas, May 2. --- Jack Alessandro, 42, was instantly killed late Thursday afternoon when he was caught between a truck and a brick wall of the Geyser Ice Company barn. It is thought that the truck was in gear when Alessandro cranked it. When he was pinioned against the wall the handle of the crank crushed him. Alessandro had been living in Waco for the last twenty-two years. He was employed at the ice plant. Surviving him are five brothers and one sister. (Printed in the Dallas Morning News)

Obituaries: Waco Times-Herald, Waco, Texas, Friday, 3 May 1929, p. 1, column 6, with reports of people who had died in automobile accidents on 2 May is a report which says, "Jack Allesandro [sic], 42, automobile mechanic at the Geyser Ice Co., was killed about 5:00 p.m. when he was crushed by a truck he was cranking."

On page 5, column 3 was the following information: His funeral was on Friday, 3 May, from his residence, 801 South 7th St. in Waco, with Rev. J. J. Grier, Pastor of First Congregational Church, officiating. Burial was in Oakwood Cemetery. The report gave his occupation and said he had lived in Waco for 21 years. It did not mention a wife or children. He was a member of two Masonic organizations, the Gurley Lodge in Waco and the Karem Shrine. There was a Masonic graveside service. He was also a member of the IOOF (Odd Fellows) and the Protective Association of Musicians. He was survived by five brothers and one sister, all named Alessandro. They were: Joseph A. of Waco, Alex of Waco, Victor of Houston, Mike of Houston, G. O. of Houston, and Miss Lillian Alessandro of Waco. There was a long list of pallbearers.
