Antonio DiSabato (spelled Di) arrived in 1901, born approx. 1844. His wife was Marie or Mary, born 1847, died 1921, buried in Blairsville, PA

I have this info from the ship manifest, but don't know if Antonio died here in US or had returned to Italy. Can't find anything further.

Children were Rosa 1879 - Paul (Ippolito) 1884 - Guy (Gaetano) 1887 and Ross 1893 all born in Castel di Sangro

I have exhausted all searches through Ancestry.com and am hoping to learn how to search records in Italy. Thanks.
