The name Villanella is extremely rare found in only 3 towns in Italy.
It seems like your family was probably from Marsico Nuovo or Viggiano in Potenza Province, Basilicata region.

Was your father born in Italy or the US? What was his father's name and where did they settle?

the age of children are wrong, maybe, but no doubts that is the family of
-Gianuario VILLANELLA (son of Michele Villanella and Caterina Birelli/Carillo however maybe the maiden name is mispelled)
and
-Carolina MARTORANO/MARTURANO ( daughter of Saverio and Rosaria Parenti)

the problem on the genealogic tree are that sometimes are with errors, without searching the records, however I am positive because the children first names matching with children first names on the genealogic tree
