The second child was born in 1880. Following naming customs, she was named Angela Maria after her maternal grandmother. She married Nicola Castellano in 1896. The third child was also a girl, born in 1887. She was named Rosa Maria. Rosa married Rocco Belmonte in May of 1903. There is no indication that any of the daughters of Michele and Antonia, or their husbands, ever came to the United States.
The fourth child was a boy, their first son. He was born on 31 Aug 1890. They named him Michele after his paternal grandfather. For some unknown reason, as I mentioned in the previous post, Michele was also the name of his father. Michele (b. 1890) married Angela Maria Onorati in Salandra in 1872. Michele and Angela and their family came to the United States and settled in Hartford, Connecticut.Michele (b. 1847) and Antonia had a fifth child, Domenico, in 1893. Domenico married Rosaria Albanese in 1913, and later married Margherita Saponara in November 1919. Michele died in Salandra in 1909.
