I see from the 1910 census they had two children at that time Fred 7, and Benjamin 5. has the birth of Fred which shows mother as Francesca Parola

Fred was born March 15, 1903 Cheshire, MA
father shown as Joseph Antony Delmalino, laborer, born Italy
Mother Francesca Parola, born Italy

I think this is Benjamin

Benedict Delmolina, born june 15, 1905 North Adams, MA
father Joseph Delmolina
mother Francheska Paralaro

Do you have the later census records? 1930 has Francesca as Frances and Guiseppe as Joseph A.
she is shown immigrating in 1892 , Joseph in 1889 - they are shown as married at ages 28 - Joseph and 25 Frances
son Bernito is with them, age 24, born MA

he is indexed as born Maine but image says Mass

I also noticed in 1910 census they are shown married 22 years and having 3 children born and 2 living

I just found another interesting thing - Josephine Delmolino born about 1890 Italy, married June 1908 Cheshire MA to Azzo Bona
her parents Joseph Delmolino and Franesecha Perolari

Elizabeth Delmolino born about 1891 East Canaan Connecticut, married May 1908 to Joseph G. Sarchi
her parents Joseph Delmolino and Francesca Delmolino

Carmelino Delmolino born about 1896 Cheshire, married June 1915 to Nemo Tagliaferri
her parents Joseph Delmolino and Frances Parlaro

so that is more children that the 3 mentioned as being born to them according to 1910 census.

so with those names of daughters I looked for the family in 1900


Joseph, age 38, quarryman, stone, born Sept. 1861, Italy parents born Italy, immigrated 1889, married 13 years

Francis, age 36, wife, born May 1864 Italy parents born Italy, immigrated 1891, married 13 years 5 children born 4 living

Josephine, age 10, daughter, born Sept. 1889 Italy parents born italy, immigrated 1891

Elizabeth, age 8, daughter, born Sept. 1891 CT parents born Italy

Clementine, age 7, daughter, born Feb. 1893 CT parents born Italy

Carmaline, age 4, daughter, born May 1896 MA, parents born Italy

I tried to find Francesca coming to US with daughter Josephine - I did not find any name close to Delmolino with females of those ages

BUT I did find a Francesca Parollaro age 27 entering US in Dec. 19, 1890 aboard the "Stura" with a daughter Maria, age 1
they are entering at NY and going to East Canaan, CT which matches with where they were in 1900

It may be that Francesca's passport was in her maiden name ?

New York, Passenger Lists, 1820-1957 about Francesco Parollaro
Name:       Francesco Parollaro
Arrival Date:       19 Dec 1890
Birth Date:       abt 1863
Age:       27
Gender:       Female
Place of Origin:       Postabaslo
Port of Departure:       Naples, Italy
Destination:       New York
Port of Arrival:       New York
Port Arrival State:       New York
Port Arrival Country:       United States
Ship Name:       Stura


the nice thing about this if it is them, is that is shows they are from Postabaslo, Italy
I took that spelling from the index entry above, but in the image it could be something else - possibly Portavasco, Portabaslo ??

all of those records at can be seen for free
