Researching Conte, Ruggiero and Porreca

My wife and I are researching her family. Based on her grandmother's death certificate, her great-grandparents were Nicholas Ruggiere/Ruggiero and Rose Conte. They were the parents of Maria Giuseppe de Ruggiero who was born in Castelnuovo di Conza ca. 1884. Maria married Giuseppe Porreca who was born in Teora, Avellino ca. 1876. Family legend says they married in Italy before coming to the US, but records seem to indicate the marriage may not have taken place until they arrived in the US. Any information on any of these individuals or their families would be greatly appreciated.
