Surname Saturday - Turco

It's been a busy summer.  I always slow down with my personal research around this time of year and try to enjoy the weather.  Besides, I lose focus after looking at the same files for several months.  Tonight I was able to find another ancestor - daughter to my 4rth great grandmother Petranilla Spina.  Maria Rosantonia was the second child of Petra and Lorenzo Macchione born about 1810 in Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria.  On 18 May 1830 she married Nicola Turco, son of Antonio and Domenica Bruno who was born on 08 Nov 1810 in Paterno, Cosenza, Calabria.

Nicola and Rosantonia had several children - 9 that I can account for.  Of those only 4 survived.  5 died within the first 4 years of their lives - and all but one died in August.  3 died in 1842 which makes me wonder if there was some kind of virus floating around that year.  Below is a list of the names of these children.

Children of NICOLA TURCO and ROSANTONIA MACCHIONE are:
2.    i.    ANTONIO GIOVANNI3 TURCO, b. 17 Feb 1831, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria.
    ii.    PALMA MARIA TURCO3, b. 31 Mar 1833, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria; d. 23 Aug 1836, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria4.
    iii.    CARMINA GIOVANNA TURCO5, b. 14 Jul 1835, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria; d. 10 Aug 1842, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria6.
    iv.    MARIA GESUALDA TURCO7, b. 26 Dec 1837, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria; d. 02 Aug 1842, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria8.
    v.    ROSARIA TURCO9, b. 17 Apr 1840, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria.
    vi.    FRANCESCA TURCO10, b. 15 Mar 1842, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria; d. 06 Dec 1842, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria11.
    vii.    GIOVANNI TURCO12, b. 09 Oct 1843, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria.
    viii.    FRANCESCA TURCO13, b. 25 Jun 1846, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria; d. 24 Aug 1848, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria14.
    ix.    FRANCESCO TURCO15, b. 24 Jan 1849, Belsito, Cosenza, Calabria.
