Pasquale Campello from Sicily

I am looking for those bearing the surname "Campello" from Sicily. My great-grandfather, Pasquale Campello came to America in 1906. His wife was Josephine (Giuseppa) Bonfiglio. He was born 17 Jan 1879 in, I believe, Caltanissetta, Sicily. He died on 30 May 1954 in Mount Vernon, Westchester, New York. He apparently did some of the iron scroll work at the Princeton University campus.

Pasquale and Josephine had the following children:
1. Angelo "Robert" Campello born 1906, in Caltanissetta, Sicily. (married Katherine Sharkey)
2. Ann or Anna Campello, born 1908, Westchester, N.Y. (married Sirignano)
3. Salvatore or Charles Campello, born 1912 in Westchester, N.Y.

The following can be found on the Ellis Island site:

There are two passenger manifests for his name at Ellis Island #1 Source: Passenger manifest of Ellis Island, N.Y., p.19, line# 405.
Last place of residence is listed as S. Felippo del Mela, Italy- South.
Going to cousin- Salvatore Frefiro or Grifiro? in Cliffwood, N.Y.
Sailed on Indiana, arrived: 7 Jul 1906 from Messina, Sicily, Italy. 27 yrs old.

Source: Passenger Manifest of Ellis Island Records, N.Y., p.611, line# 11.
Last place of residence: S. Felippo del Mela, 27 yrs., Port of departure: Naples, Campagnia, Itally. Arrival on 1 Sep 1906 on the Indiana or Patricia(says both).

I would love to exchange info with anyone who is connected to the families mentioned above.

Thank you,
Jinny (Campello) Callister
