First Generation
1. Carl Christian ‘Carlo’ Sarauw,1 born 12 January 1846 in Messina, Sicily, Italy, the son of Johan Adolph Sarauw and Gertrud Elisabeth Mayer;1 died 15 April 1936 in Messina, Sicily, Italy.1 Carlo married Sarah Deidamia Heartt1 (born 13 April 1853 in Troy, Rensselaer County, New York, the daughter of Philip Titus Heartt and Sarah Jerusha Pierson; twin;1, 2 Sarah died 6 January 1932 in Catania, Sicily, Italy1).

Carlo’s full name is given as Carl Christian Robert Victor Sarauw.1

Sarah and her husband Carlo (also called Charles in some records) lived in Italy, and Sarah’s siblings back in the United States were concerned for their well-being immediately following the 1908 earthquake in Italy, as attested by an article in the New York Times:3

Mr. and Mrs. Charles Sauraw [sic, Sarauw], well known in Bloomfield, N.J., are residents of Messina. Their three daughters also reside with them. Mr. Sauraw is an exporter of fruits and oils, and for nearly twenty years was Prefect of that city. Mrs. Sauraw is a daughter of the late Philip T. Heartt of Bloomfield who was American Consul at Glasgow, Scotland, under Presidents Pierce and Buchanan. She has two sisters and a brother residing in Glen Ridge, Mrs. John Scott Jarvie, Miss Heartt, and J. Pierson Heartt. Fears are felt for the safety of the Sauraw and his family. No word has been heard from them, and Mr. J. Pierson Heartt was trying yesterday to reach them by cable.

About a week later they heard from Charles and family:4

A cable-gram from Charles Sauraw and family to friends in Glenn Ridge announces that they have escaped death in the earthquake in Messina. It was feared that they had perished...The family lived in the lower section of Messina and their home was wiped out. They were away at the time, however, and thus escaped the general fate.
