** I originally thought her maiden name was Dacci or Daccia because it is a fairly common last name in Foggia and because it is close to "Dutchi," the name my grandmother told me was her mother's maiden name.  In looking closely at their passenger manifest, however, it appears her maiden name was Riccia (also a common name in Foggia).  Since there is conflicting information on her maiden name, I am leaving it as 'unknown' right now.

New finds are marked in red.  I got these names from their son Nicola's obituary just recently.  The lack of Scarnias in Foggia and minor typos in the obituary make me wonder as to the spelling of Carmella's last name which is why it is marked with a question mark after it.
