DeGeorge - Philadelphia/Southern NJ

Hi! I'm looking for any possible relatives from anywhere. Please read the info. I've posted and see if you recognize anything.
My Grandfather's name was Carman DeGeorge (actually DiGiorgio). He was born in Turin, Italy (northwestern Italy) about 1875. He came to America as a boy (approx. 1885) with his father & mother (not sure of any siblings). His father (name unknown) eventually changed the family name to DeGeorge to "Americanize," as many immigrants did at the time. They settled in Philadelphia.
Carman eventually married my Grandmother (I don't know her name or much about her as she died long before I was born). They eventually moved to Clayton NJ and had eight (8) children, 6 boys and 2 girls: Carman Jr., Alfred, Carl, Thomas, Mario, Charles, Margaret, & Lillian (I'm not sure of the exact order of oldest to youngest). He passed away about 1964-65.
All of the siblings settled in this area except for Mario. He moved to Louisiana many years ago and settled there.
My father was Carl (his actual name was Anthony, but he never liked it so he used his middle name Carl). He was born in 1907 in Philadelphia (we actually have his original birth certificate with his last name as DiGiorgio).
He married and had 2 children - Carl & Elizabeth (these are my 1/2 brother and sister). He divorced and later married my Mom (Philomeina DePrince) around 1941-42. They settled in Glassboro, NJ, and had 3 children: My oldest brother Thomas was born in 1946, my next oldest brother Philip was born in 1954, and I (Samuel) was born in 1958.
Is any of this info. familiar to anyone out there? Feel free to e-mail me anytime. Thanks, & Happy New Year!

Sam
