    Notes 
    • "Immediately after the wedding, Lucantonio and Rachael emigrated to America where they gave birth to the first three children: Nicholas, Michael and Vincent. Soon after the birth of Vincent, they returned to Italy in 1907 where Domenico was born in 1909 or 1910 and then Eugenia. Immediately after this, Lucantonio returned to the U. S. and called the two oldest children over before the outbreak of WWI between 1915 and 1916. Vincent and Domenico were sent for study and only in 1927, the year of premature death due to typhoid, Eugenia was placed in college. Lucantonio's intention was to have all his children in America, but with the advent of Fascism, he could recall ony his son, Vincent, who was born in the USA and Eugenia, because she was still a minor. Domenico could not leave Italy because of the border closure and the subsequent outbreak of WWII. Domenico graduated in chemistry at Milan where he worked and married Anna Bartoli. They had a daughter, Giuliana, in 1941 and a son, Lucantonio, in 1943. Following a serious illness which caused the amputation of Domenico's lower limb, Domenico and family moved to Armento, the birthplace of the Solimando family. Domenico taught math and science at the local high school there until his death in 1975. Giuliano and Lucantonio studied and received degrees in Naples; Giuliana in letters and Lucantonio in pharmacy. Giuliano became a teacher of Italian, Latin, history and geography in a middle school in Basilicata, Potenza, where she lives with her husband, Giuseppe Antonio Ierardi. They have three children, Marianna, Michael and Valeria. Marianna has a degree in law and Valeria, a degree in political science. They both work and live in Perugia (Umbria). Michael is a doctor who lives and works in Calabria.

      Lucantonio has been married twice. He has three children from his first marriage: Domenico, Vincenzo and Annamaria.

      Michael has a child: Joseph Alexander. Annamaria has two children: Elena and Nicholas.

      Eugenia married Filippo Cordaro, a journalist of Sicilian origin. After some time, they went to live in Puerto Rico, where Filippo taught at the local university. They had at least two children...a daughter, Joanna, and a son, Vincent." - Giuliana Solimando Ierardi in an email dated 28 Nov 2012 -------------------------------------------------------------- Lucantonio filed a Declaration of Intention to become a citizen of the U.S. on 14 Feb 1927 in U.S. District Court.
