Nicola a/k/a Nicholas Andriani, of Southern Italian descent, was born June 24, 1888 in Torrito, Italy. Toritto is a town in the Province of Bari located in the Puglia Region of Italy. He was the son of Corrado Andriani and Maria Lomangino-Fariello-Andriani, both who were born and died in Toritto, Italy.

Nicholas' mother Maria was a matron at a school in Bari. She was widowed at the time she married Nicholas' father Corrado.

Together with Frank, Maria gave birth to her first child, Nicholas' half brother and oldest sibling, Paolo a/k/a Paul Fariello in Toritto, Italy.

After Maria married Corrado, they had two other children who were born in Toritto, Italy. They were Ignazio Andriani born in May 5, 1885 and Maria Antonia a/k/a as Marie Antoinette Andriani-Volpe born in 1886.
