Galasso - Italy to Brazil to US

Classification: Query
Surnames: Galasso, Galosso
I am looking for relatives of and information on a Galasso family that came to the US on or about 7/18/1907. They originally came from Avigliano, Potenza, Italy. However, they lived several years in Brazil before making the final leg of their journey to the US. When arriving in the US, they appear to have settled and lived in the Port Chester, Westchester Co., NY area. The New York Passenger Manifest of the SS Titian shows the family as follows (note the misspelling of the last name as GALOSSO):
Guiseppe Galosso - age 37
Carmineta Galosso - age 35
Six Children: Vito - age 11), Pasquale (age 9), Vito Crekanza (age 7), Conis (age 5), Maria (age 3), and Angelo (age 8 months).
All children are shown on the passenger list as born in Sau Paulo, Brazil - accuracy of that fact has not been determined).
The family left Rio de Janeiro, Brazil on June 18, 1907 and arrived in the port of New York on July 18, 1907.
Any assistance would be appreciated.
