I found the immigration record for Antonino Tassone coming over in 1905 on the Sicilian Prince. It indicates he lived in Monteleone and I am assuming it is referring to Villanova Monteleone in Sardegna. Antonino went back to Italy sometime around 1910, then his brother Pietro married my great grandmother, Martha Barnett in Westmoreland, PA. I am hoping that when Antonino went back he remarried or has children. His parents names were Rocco and Catherine. If anyone has any info please reply, I appreciate it!

further edit.... maybe Antonino's cousin's surname is a clue...
Antonino went back to Italy around 1910 and his brother, Pietro married his wife who stayed behind. Pietro was born in 1892 and I am unable to find an immigration record for him right now so I am unsure of when he actually arrived.
I am also not able to make out the last name of the cousin on the manifest from the Sicilian Prince and I do not know of any cousins or family that was here before the brothers.
I was able to find that his fathers name was Rocco ( we have lots of Rocco's in the family) and his mothers name was Catherine (no maiden name yet) and they never came over.
We are of a line of Tassone's that have curly hair. I have not seen any others with this feature and have met others from other lines.
Any other help anyone could offer would be great! Thanks... Lena
