It would be helpful if we could view the passenger list. What ship did he arrive on and what date? What was the first name of DiGilio? the ages of both at arrival?

Giovanni was to see his uncle, Vito Marchese.
Donato was to see his brother-in-law, Vito Marchese (if I read the manifest correctly)
Giovanni was born in San Mauro Forte. Donato was born in Accettura

Yes, that is what I see also.

Donato leaves his wife, Isabella in San Mauro Forte.
Giovanni leaves his mother, Angela, in San Mauro Forte.
Both are traveling to Hartford, CT - specifically 94 Walnut St.

What USA records do you have besides the manifest?

Is this your wife's grandfather in 1920 US Census?
Wife's name is Angelina
He is age 38, with immigration stated as 1913
She is age 24, with immigration in 1912.
Two daughters: Elizabeth, age 7; and Jean, age 2

It would appear that John/Giovanni and Angelina were married in US

i also have a ship passenger list from May 14, 1910.
Giovanni Marchisella birth year is correct. However, states last residence was Tricarico, Italy which is about 20 miles from San Mauro Forte.
