Surname Russo

Also looking for info on Sebastiano Russo, Father of Michael A. Ross. Michael Ross' name was changed at Ellis Island, not sure why. Sebastiano is somehow related to a Mossimo Munafo, who I think still lives in Messina. Sebastiano is said to have gone back and forth between Sicily and the United States several times, but ended his life in Messina.

I found a 1906 arrival manifest for Sebastiano (his name is crossed out, it means he didn't sail that time)

from Ellisisland.org:

he stated he was joining his son Michelangelo in Oneonta NY

edit to add:

possible January 1906 arrival manifest for Michelangelo Russo, Sebastiano's son?:
