He had six sisters, of which one was named Ezoura. He emmigrated to Georgetown, British Guyana in approximately 1904. He was married in 1907 to Maria Cecilia Gonsalves. They had ten children.

Comments: Juanita Rogers, nee de la Rosa, granddaughter of F A Corea. No idea where in Madeira my family comes from, but they were originally Correia, and I believe came out from Madeira in the 1840's. My great great or great great great grandfather was Joaquim Correia and I believe he came out to St Vincent already married. His son or grandson was George Corea of Sans Souci in St Vincent. George Corea, my great grandfather married Amelia Jardine from Grenada (would have been about 1880's, so any information about her family would also be useful. Thanks

Comments: Researching the possibility of jewish roots.Have sent a DNA sample to www.familytreedna.com. Should have results by mid-june. The names I have are my grandfather, Francis Vieira Cro’ or Caro or Coroa (I am unclear on the last name spelling at this time), who immigrated to USA just before WW1 on my dads side. He came from Madeira, Portugal. He changed the spelling to Carew. His dad’s name was John Vieira Cro’. Born in Sao Vincent,district of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. Born 10-25-1874. His dad Antonio Vieira Cro’. His mother Antonia dos Santos. His wifes name was Maria Augusta Goncalves in Sao Vincent, district of Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. Born 3-23-1871. Her mothers name may have been Maria Joaquina. I hope this helps and makes sense. I am just getting started. I am sure the DNA test will help too. More info coming soon. Thank you for your help. Respectfully, Rod Carew.

Surnames: Abreu, Catanho, da Silva, de Sousa, Fernandes
Comments: I grew up without my father for 22 years and now am curious about my biological father. I was told serveral different stories from various family members but I want to know the truth. As a mother myself, I feel very lost, not knowing my roots and most of all, who is/was my father. My father's name is Avelino Fernandes de Sousa. His father's name is Antonio de Sousa, and his mother's name is Ludovina Fernandes. I do believe my father was married at the time i was born, 1985. I was told I have two older brothers, no names but I'm sure they are De Sousa. I would also be looking for my godmother, Teresa Maria Figeura Abreu. My godfather, Albino Gil Catanho da Silva, passed away in 2002(?) but I would also be looking for any relatives/friends if possible. If anyone has any information or knows where I can get more help with finding him, please feel free to email me. Thank you!
