It are 2 Militello in Sicily:
Militello Val di Catania( Catania province)
Militello Rosmarino( Messina province);
abt Sant'Agata( Giuseppa Lo Presti arrival), it are the towns:
Sant'Agata Li Battiati( Catania province)
Sant'Agata di Militello ( Messina province)

Palermo cannot be a sure clue, because many sicilians referring to Palermo, because is the Sicily capital
I believe that , by Peg finding, thanks Peg, well we are no far from to resolve Biagio mystery

I'm glad you found that a daughter in law had the Sidoti surname. I saw the following yesterday but forgot to mention it. If you look at the 1920 census with the family on it, enumerated on the same street, is a Sidoti family as well as a family whose surname is misspelled, but these surnames are from Militello Rosmarino in Messina Province. When I saw that yesterday, I thought I might be on the right track with the town name, but I looked at some of those people on the passenger lists and couldn't connect them as relatives. But people from the same town did tend to settle in the same location, so I thought I had the town correct. I was just searching for additional proof. Yesterday I found Giuseppe Crasci on two passenger lists from the town, Antonio Grasci on a passenger list, and Basilio Crasi. Those were brothers all going to Cleveland, Ohio. I just can't connect them to Biagio. If they weren't brothers to Biagio then possibly they were cousins.

Anyway, I think we are on the right track. I do suspect that the surname changed in spelling from the original spelling.

I probably won't be on the forum a lot today. I have Mah Jonng this morning and then need to get some of my own genealogy research and writing done. I am writing a family history book for my sons and have about 320 pages written so far, but I keep getting sidetracked.

Have a good day and thanks again.

Hugs

I just want to share this info about the brothers in case it helps (from their passenger lists):

Basilio Crasi born 1867-married-don't have wife's name

Guiseppe Crasci-born 1887-wife Rosalia Del Sole

Antonio Grasci-born 1893-wife Regalia Liotta

That's it for now.

Carmela LoPresti is the sister of Giuseppa LoPresti AKA Josephine (LoPresti) Williams
Her fathers name is Calogero LoPresti and mother is Maria Ciuppa.
They are buried at the cemetary in Sant' Agata di Militello in the provience of Messina in Sicily.
I am not sure where Carmela and Biagio were married but you might want to check out the church in Bellevue, Ohio I believe it is called Imaculate Conception.
