The surname is ATTINA' in italian spelling, and not Attino; Attino is wrong in italian spell... I know not if your ancestors came from Messina town or from some Common in Messina province.
It is possible this second option also...
so if you sure abt Messina common as birthplace, by 1900 census you know the month and year of births of your ancestors and for to ask the birthacts you can use the right italian form letters very helpful and availables in this website : www.circolocalabrese.org/

A lot of immigration documents seem to swap O's to A's and vice versa, so if all of the other pieces fit, you probably have the right information.
