Is it possible he died in Italy? Is it possible Maria never married CROSA?

Check Ellis Island [free], as the writing is not great, and I can't make out the towns of birth. I obtained this from Ancestry.
NY PASSENGER LISTS
Departed Genoa, Italy on the Dante Alighen
Arr NY 6-12-1915
POSSIO, Maria 35, cook, born [town???]; going to bro Guiseppe POSSIO, coal miner, in WV [can't read town]
CROSA, Maddalena 7; born ????
CROSA, Giorgio 4: " "
Last res: Lanzo? Zarino?, N. Italy
Relative in Italy: sister, Marianna CAGGARIUS?, Lanzo?

Are you positive Mary/Greg were divorced? Both together 1930 Lackawanna Co PA; 1940 Maria widowed, Lackawanna, and no sign of Gregory anywhere 1940. Women often said they were widowed, as it was humiliating to be divorced, but since Greg not found it's possible she is widow.
b/d/m online records are scant few for PA.

1930 Jefferson, Lackawanna PA
MANCIA
Gregory 56 Italy; farmer
Mary 52 Italy
Angeline 21 Italy

I don't know if any of these records apply to your families,and it will require lots of patience, as most you'll have to go thru pg by pg.

If you still want to follow up on divorce....records Co Comm. Office.
