Dear Maryellen,
I decided to have another look at the Ellis Island records and found that Luigi Plos when to the US the stay with his brother Dante plos in Chicago. So Luigi can't be Dante! So I searched for a Dante Plos with no exact spelling and Bingo! You will be glad to know he was not married.

Ellis Island record reads:

First Name:Dante
Last Name:Plas (spelling error "typical")
Ethnicity:Italy
Last Place of Residence:Maiano, Italy
Date of Arrival:January 17, 1921
Age at Arrival:  20y    
Gender:  M    
Marital Status:  S  
Ship of Travel:Belvedere
Port of Departure:Trieste
Manifest Line Number:0018

He apparently went to stay with his uncle Giocondo Diplati
at springfeld Ill.
Note: Make sure you view the original ships manifest (also click to enlarge manifest)always read the original for lots of info!

regards
Rob.

PS Love a good mystery
