My great grandfather had a brother named Ilario, but after a certain point (1910 census, I think it was) I can't find him. I was thinking that he may have started using an English version of his name. I've found that alot of people still have this name, but I can't find an English equivalent for it anywhere. Anyone have any ideas on this?
Sorry all! I wasn't receiving the usual email notifications when people responded to this thread! Thank you for your interest in this...here is all the info I have:
Ilario Sorbo, born 1891 in Italy (family was from Teano and/or it's frazione San Marco) He came to the US with his father Andrea in Oct. 1902. He must have returned to Italy at some point, because in 1906 he appears on the ship manifest, arriving with his mother, Columba (nee De Quattro) and one of his brothers, Eugenio. After that, there is no record of him that I can find. Some of the family returned to Italy after 1913 (Columba and four of the children: Maria, Juliete, Alfonso and Gualderico). According to their 1921 return manifest, Alfonso remained in Italy (he was listed as next of kin in Italy). There is no mention of Ilario.
ADDITIONAL INFO JUST FOUND: On Ancestry.com, there is a family tree listing that includes an"Elario" Sorbo, born 1893 in Teano and married Jan 23, 1910 in Rhode Island. I can't access the actual tree (waiting for tax return to renew my membership on Ancestry). The family tree is under the surname "Rocco"

I believe that Ilario died around 1920 because I found this 1930 census for Elizabeth Viglione living with her second? husband Gennaro Viglione... they have listed with them Gennaro's stepchild with Sorbo lastname:
