Found him! Like his brother Joseph, he was listed in the census as "Mooney."His daughter "Rosalie" shows up as Rosa or Rose on later census records. She was born in Nov 1856, so Calogero/Charles and Giuseppe/Joseph probably came out to the goldfields together in 1856. I wish I knew how they got there (ship or covered wagon). I'll send you an e-mail, Chris, with what I have for Charles when I ge t it put together.
