According to second document Leonardo died on 30 Oct 1884, at 1 year age, son of Stefano Licata and mother unknown.

It's also possible that you can find their civil marriage in a following period, with the explicit recognition (acknowledgement?) of the children born during their relation (often only the living children).

I have found a civil marriage document such as Luca mentioned with an ancestor from Belmonte in which the children from the relationship are named and confirmed as legitimate offspring of the father.
