After a frustrating six year search, I thought I'd see if anyone here can help locate any other information on my grand uncle Leopoldo Epifano. Here's what I do know about him.
Born on 28 November 1869 in the town of San Mango d'Aquino Catanzaro. Parents Franceso Saverio Epifano (1842-1923) and Carmela Esposito (1845-1925).
Siblings Antonio (1867-1945), Angelo (1872-1951), Giuseppe (1889-1958), Saverio (1885-1964) and Palma (1876-1968). All four brothers emigrated to the US. Sister Palma remained in Italy.
First emigrated in 1900 per below manifest

Returned to Italy in 1905 or early 1906 and accompanied my grandfather back to the US in May of 1906 per the following manifest, line 12.
He was married (spouse unknown) and supposedly had two children Angelina and Fiore. He may have settled somewhere in South America. If he returned to Italy, he did not die in San Mango since the town's vital records do not show a death date.
Other than the two manifests and his birth record, I've found nothing.
