I am not sure about the father or the town, but Domenica's surname really looks like Seuma and it appears she is lined-out (although the line misses her entry somewhat). All the other non lined-out entries have a check mark at the far left, the lined-out ones do not. Domenica does not have a check mark so it looks like she did not sail on this voyage - whoever she may be.
My hobby is finding things. Having found most of my own, I am happy to help others find theirs. PM me!
it's possible she didn't sail, but I was trying to make out the information on it anyway. It just came up when I did a phonetic spelling search of the name and the year of birth matched. I didn't say it was definitely the manifest for Domenica Summa. That's why I wanted someone else to look it over. We can eliminate that possibility then.
Wow..can not believe all the help from so many people...Thank You..
Carmine we lived in Port Chester..Greenwich is next town up but it was Port Chester...
This gets even deeper as Pink 67 finds My Grandfarther Canio's.parents are Gianbattista and Domenica Maria Paolucci.Born in Avigliano 22 July 1894.....I also find him on this site from a 2005 posting on Oceania..April 9, 1912..manifest states he is going to brother Antonio in Port Chester..He was born in Acerenza and son of Giuseppe Savino and Maria Caterina Vaccaro and states he has a wife Domenica Maria Vaccaro in Italy??...

if the arrival manifest that Carmine found is correct:
then it states clearly that Canio Vaccaro, age 18, single, farmlabourer, last permanent residence Avigliano, nearest relative in Italy his wife Domenica Maria (conflicting information with the marital status) was going to Port Chester NY, to join his brother Vaccaro Antonio living on 30 Buc? Street. He stated also he was born in Avigliano.
I think the surname is Carlucci. I don't see an o for Colucci. I see an "a" after the C, which definitely is not part of that letter and then there is another letter which almost looks like a "v," but I think it's an "r" and the way it's connected makes it looks like a v. Unfortunately, both surnames exist in the town.
