First of all the town is, (I suspect) Villafrate and the proprer spelling is La Barbera since there are 21 persons with that spelling in Villafrati (PA) Sicily. Go to www.paginebianche,.it and take a look yourself. =Peter=

These are great finds. These are all related as well.
Nicolo was the brother of Samuel (one of the 11 children).
--Valarie - did you happen to see where it stated 11 children / 7 living? (at the time). I checked on the census but it's hard for me to read.
Calato (Rosalia) was married to Samuel LaBarber - therefore making Lorenzo join Rosalia's brother - Pietro

Sure, look just to the right of Rose's name: married 30 years, 11 children born, 7 children living
These may help in case you don't already have them.
Ancestry has a complete set of census blanks, they really help in deciphering blurry census images
