Another son, Donato Michele, worked in the slate quarries in PA until he sustained an injury (broken hip). It is said he went to Washington DC for medical treatment and stayed in the home of his brother, Giuseppe’s in-laws. It was then that he met his wife, Ezilda Fioravanti who had immigrated from Florence, Italy. She was a midwife. They built a nice life for themselves owning a small grocery store in Washington DC. They had one son, Nicola (who went by Nicholas/Nick). Nick’s father died when he was a teenager and when he married he and his wife (Elizabeth Via) subsequently lived with his mother since she was alone. They had two children, Donald and Judith Finelli.
