He was traveling to Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, to join his brother-in-law, Giovanni Mansueto.  Pietro, age 39, re-enters the United States on May 7, 1909.  He was returning to Pittsburgh, joining his brother, Salvatore DiMaggio.  In 1923, Pietro’s name appears on a Passenger Ship Manifest for Salvatore D’Aiello.  When Salvatore immigrated to the Unites States, he was joining Pietro, his cousin, who was living at 527 State Street, Painesville, Lake County, Ohio.  Pietro’s sister, Rosalia DiMaggio, was married to Painesville resident, Ignazio Mansueto.
