Pete arrived in America on November 13, 1911 at the age of 17. His name as listed in the ship manifest was "Pietro Insana". Sometime after his arrival in America it was changed to "Inzana". He came aboard the ship "San Guglielmo" which departed from the port of Palermo, Italy. This ship was later torpedoed and sunk by a German submarine off the coast of Italy on January 8, 1918.

Peter was born in South Pier Niceto, Italy. He filed his WWI draft registration card when he was single and working as a miner in Elbon, PA. At that time he was described as having a medium height and build, brown eyes and black hair. During the 1930 census Peter and his family were living on McKinley Heights in Perry, Columbiana County, Ohio where he was working in a pottery place working on kilns. In 1942 when he re-filed for the WWII draft he listed his name as "Pete" with no middle initial and was residing at 917 Second Avenue in Brockway. He was then employed by the Brockway Clay Company.
