Adelitzo?

Subject:   Adelitzo?

I've been looking for info on the Adelitzo surname, but have been told it was probably written down wrong at port of entry, and I can't find any reference to it in Italy!
My grandparents were Michael and Augustina Adelitzo, and they resided in Baldwin, MI. They were on the 1930 census in Michigan, as Adelitzo, then the 1920 census as Delitzo! It stated that they arrived in US in 1902, and it said that their oldest daughter was born in 1910 in Illinois. So I'm thinking that they went to Chicago after arriving because that was the largest group of Italians, other than New York. There is no one left to check with! I believe the name started out as Adelizzi, Deliso, or a variation of such!
Any help would greatly be appreciated!
Thank You,
Larry L. Cartwright
