I also saw this in my research. I assumed it had to do with it being easier to get a boat from Marseille to NY, than Naples to NY. Far fewer people were sailing from Marseille.

This same phenomemon occurred in the Iacueo family when my great
grandmother and her children left Itri for Marseilles in the late
1800s/early 1900s. They eventually immigrated to the USA from
Marseilles to New York in 1908.
Does anyone have any information regarding the reason all of these
families moved from Itri to Marseilles? It's a great mystery to me.
