Researching Biondo

I am new to the Biondo family. My fiance's mother's maiden name is Biondo. Her father Salvatore "Sam" was born 17 Aug 1920 in Palermo. His family immigrated here at some point before that, but apparently went back before he was born. They returned to the US and settled in Michigan. He served in the Air Force at San Pedro CA where he met and married Arlene Tonyan. Sam died 1 Dec. 1993 in CA. His father was either Ignacio or Joseph. Joseph (Joe Bandy) Biondo of The Valachi Papers fame is supposed to tie in, but Sam never talked about his family. Somewhere down the line, the name was shortened from Biondolillo. Does anyone have anything? I would love to have enough info to pass around at Christmas. Thanks in advance for any info.

I'm looking for a girl who left Italy in 1921. And came here with her father Gaetano. Her name is Onorata Biondo the town she left behind is Cinisi, Palermo. Her mother was Nicolina Puleo. The last place of reidence that we know of was Detroit, MI. On her ship manifest she wrote that her brother was already here and living in Det.
Because she must have married and had to have changed her name it is hard for us to find anything about her.
Her mother was said to have lost her mind and died of depression of not seeing her children again. It's an incredible story. If your fiancee's family knows anything even the smallest of detail please let me know.
And my father's name is Salvatore "Sam" Biondo, too. also born in Palermo. small world, ay?!
Sincerely, Maria
