    Notes 
    • BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH of MICHAEL SOLIMANDO:

      When Michael Solimando was born on December 28, 1900, in Manhattan, New York, his father, Lucantonio, was 29 and his mother, Rachele, was 29. Lucantonio and Rachele emigrated to America from Italy right after their marriage in 1895. Michael was the second of three children born in New York. Michael's older brother was Nicholas and his younger brother was Vincent. Shortly after the birth of Vincent, the entire family returned to Italy where two more children were born between 1908 and 1910: a son, Domenico and a daughter, Eugenia. Soon after the birth or Eugenia, Michael's father returned to the US.

      Before the outbreak of WWI, Michael's father sent for Michael and his older brother, Nicholas, who were in their late teens, to prevent them from getting caught up in the hostilities in Europe. The two younger sons, Vincent and Domenico were sent to study.

      Michael married Madeline Lena Verrochi in 1931 and between 1932 and 1949 they had one son, Michael Jr., and two daughters, Rachael and Chetta.

      Michael was a lifetime member of the Ancient and Honorable Artillery.

      He died on April 2, 1991, in Milton, Massachusetts, at the age of 90, and was buried there in the Milton Cemetery.
