PVT Leone Introini

PVT Leone Introini was born 5 Nov 1891 in Samarate, Italy.  His mother was Maddalena.  Leone had immigrated in 1904. When he registered for the draft on 5 Jun 1917, he was working as a moulder for Emerson Morris & Company of  Tuckahoe, New York.  He was living on Fisher Avenue in Tuckahoe at the time. We know that he had 2 sisters because he said he was their support on his draft registration.

Leone was inducted on 3 May 1918.  He was assigned to M Company 116th Infantry and boarded the USS Finland with them on 15 Jun 1918.  PVT Introini was probably wounded in October 1918 (between 8 and 26 October) and he died of his wound(s) on 10 Nov 1918.

His mother was living in Samarate when she was notified of his death. His body may have been returned to Samarate for burial.
