I will write letters to the 4 addresses found, however, I believe Gallo, Caserta is more than likely where the family relocated.Many died there. I am told Pietro's land was Olive trees to make olive oil that he gave his niece.
Comune di Gallo and Comune di Gallo Matese are just 7.5 miles west of Capriati a Volturno. Click here.

Still wonder about her first husband, I don't think he died and I think they may have had a child unless he had a marriage before her- this is truly skeletons being dug up.
It was very common for the men to come over first to check things out, look for work, find a place to live, etc. They would then send for their family, sometimes one, two, three years later.
As you can imagine, much can happen when husband and wife are apart for a period of years, especially when the only means of maintaining contact was by letters.
