I think you need to start with the known (Mom) and work backwards. There are alot of Salafia's out there.

Here is a 1910 census that I believe is your Sebastiano and his brother Natalia. They are lines 2 & 3. Arrived in 1904. Census page is not real clear.

[Sebastiana Salafia]
Age in 1910: 19
Estimated birth year: abt 1891
Birthplace: Italy

Father's Birth Place: Italy
Mother's Birth Place: Italy
Home in 1910: Lawrence Ward 2, Essex, Massachusetts
Marital Status: Single
Race: White
Gender: Male
Year of Immigration: 1907
Neighbors: View others on page
Household Members:

Marie Mealone 45
Joseph Mealone 17
Emanule Mealone 7
Rosie Mealone 25

Sabastiana Lalatin 19
Romana Garratzin 39
John Romaria 33
Luigi Russo 25
Joe Russo 27

Let me know what you think. I have seen that address in some other records. I have to look and see if I can find it again.

Edited to add manifest page.

Jak

Sorry, but for some reason one page of the manifest did not attach properly last night.

Please look again. Is the 1910 census and passenger record your ancestor? The passenger manifest has some naturalization information on it. If the manifest is correct it would appear he was not naturalized as of that date.

Have you contacted NARA for a naturalization records check?
