Her father was Alessandro Palmieri and her mother was Caterina Musacchio. Alessandro died on 2 June 1853 when Maria Stella was only 10 years old. His death record shows he was the son of Giuseppe Palmieri and Luisa Musacchio. It is interesting to note that Alessandro and his father both died at the age of 35. Her mother, Caterina was born in San Benedetto Ullano and died on 30 March 1862 in Montalto. She was the daughter of Saverio Musacchio and Arcangela (Posterano ?).

On October 16, 1866, Maria Stella gave birth to a son named Rosario Salvatore DeSeta. I have not found a death record for Gaetano DeSeta yet, however, he must have died between 1866 and 1870.
