Trying to make out the parents that are listed for Stephen Tolomeo......or are the Barbara's parents being

"Patrini" are the godparents. Best I can make out is that the godparents are Michael and Angela Ariciato.

They might be related. Patrini were often relatives at least in Italy and I assume even more important to immigrants.

Probably their neighbors living close by. Perhaps even in the same building.
