Surnames: Maffei, Mercurelli

I am searching for information about my husband's grandparents, Umberto Mercurelli and Maria Maffei. They emigrated in 1909 and 1912 respectively and settled in
Pike County Kentucky. They died, we believe, during the influenza epidemic. Their surviving children were put in
orphanages in West Virginia. Adolpho Mercurelli, brother
of Umberto, retured to Ischia, I believe, in 1919. I am hoping that someone can offer some helpful information about either or both of the families. It would mean a lot to us.
