I am researching these interrelated families in Potenza.
Michele SMALDONE (b. ca. 1822) m. Antonia Maria MALPEDE (b. ca. 1832) in 1852, and had at least three children: Giuseppe (b. 1857), Santa Lucia (b. 1859), and Gerardo (b. 1866). Gerardo went to NYC, married Rosina TOLVE also from Potenza; I descend from them. Giuseppe also went to NYC, married Antonia Santangela, but I have no further info on them.
Giuseppe TOLVE (b. ca. 1839) m. Angela BRIENZA (b. ca. 1852) in 1871, and had at least two children: Rosina (b. 1872) and Vincenzo (b. 1877). As noted above, Rosina m. Gerardo Smaldone in NYC.
I would be happy to share information with anyone whose families intersect with these. - Joe
