Few sites for your research.

You need to find an US document which would have his precise place of birth. You can not proceed with the research until you know where he was born. Did you locate his arrival manifest? Was he naturalized citizen? Did you look into state marriage application, church marriage record? All of the above mentioned forms should have his place of birth.
