Did they live in Rhode Island by any chance?

There are numerous records on Ancestry . com which may apply. Some extra information from you would be helpful: approximate years of birth, whether born in Italy or the US, spouses names, etc.

Any chance that the middle initial A in Joseph's name stood for Anthony and that he is listed as Tony on the census with his last name misspelled as below? It would be helpful if you gave us approximate years of birth for Joseph and Andrea.

where in Louisiana did they reside?

If you go to the beta search website, and type in Migliaccio, there are some entries for Louisiana. I don't know if any are connected to your ancestry.

Ok that is great but anything else that can be found on the Migliaccio name would be wonderful. I know that we still have family over there that has not changed their surname.

As you can see from this mapping tool ( http://www.gens.labo.net/en/cognomi/gen ... MIGLIACCIO ) the surname is quite common in modern Italy.

In order to learn more about your family, it will be necessary to determine exactly which comune/city/village they originated from. Since it appears that your family may have arrived in the US pre-1900, the passenger manifest will not be helpful in this regard (minimal information on early manifests).

If we can narrow down some more detail (specifically birthdate or at least birth year) on the males who actually immigrated from Italy, we may be able to locate a draft registration card or other document which contains place of birth information.

another surprise abt Rosa Migliaccio first name and birthdate;
in 1900 census she declared that was born in jul 1887;
instead was baptized with the first name of Crocifissa Migliaccio, and baptized the 5 july 1886 (and not 1887):
