I can't figure out the profession or husband's last name for Mariantonia.

Or profession of her sister Domenica.

Mariantonia was a "possidente" - landowner
Her husband's surname looks like "Mormile"- this surname is found in Caserta Province :D
Domenica was a "filatrice" - spinner

Thanks, my dictionary is too modern. I don't think asinaio means what we would think today!
