Vito Antonio FELITTI ( right spelling) born on 15 june 1891 #56 in Vietri di Potenza, son of Antonio FELITTI and Filomena GRANDE.. I am pretty sure that is your ancestor, and also the first names of first daughter Minnie ( Filomena) and first son Anthony (Antonio) matching with Vito parent's first names, following the italian naming tradition..

Hi Tessa,
thanks for the helpful finds..
the wife was Nicoletta but on the 1930 census she was named Rose.... maybe changed the first name?...

Hugs,
