Thank you for the reply. I looked again on the Ellis Island site and the spelling you have is wrong it shows the information I had mentioned before on the name.
Associated Passenger        Date of Arrival        Port of Departure        Line #                
        Spyvidion Thora        Mar 18, 1907        Cherbourg, France        0020
My mother told me this was his correct name, which was given to her by my great-grandmother. His name was for some reason written as Sam Ehora and that is what he ended up going by. Sam Ehora was a Greek not Romanian, Maria was Romanian.
My mom said Maria was in Michigan before going to Ohio, unsure if that was where she first went when coming to America or not, if I had to assume I would say yes. She moved to Ohio from Michigan.
Most likely they did marry in Ohio. They were both Catholics.
