Emigration to U.S. from Tunisia

Surnames: Zaso, DiGregorio
My grandfather, Mariano Zaso, was born about 1878. I am searching for his place of birth. He was Sicilian, but I believe he emigrated to the U.S. from Tunisia via Palermo. I was told his father was Joseph Zaso and his mother was Mary Denase. Of course their names are Americanized. He married my grandmother, Filippa De Gregorio, in New York City on May 5, 1904. They then settled in Mount Morris, Livingston County, New York. They had 11 children: Joseph, Mary, Tony (drowned), Mamie (my mother), Jack, Martha (died), another Martha, Josie, Sam, Tom, and Delores. My aunts Josie and Delores are still alive and live in Mount Morris. I would appreciate any information available or leads as to where to continue my search. Thanks.
