John M. Costa from Pico, Azores 1884

  of 1060

My grandfather John M. Costs arrived here in Boston in 1884. He traveled to California where he met and married Adeline Rogers/Gonsalves. (Some of Adelines family used Rogers and some stayed with Gonsalves). They had 3 children, Albert, Helen and Florenced. John died in Hayward, Ca. in 1936 and Adeline in Fremont, Ca. in 1965.
I have found no siblings for John but Adeline had 24 brothers and sisters:
Mary Rogers/Gonsalves/Nunes
Rose Rogers/Gonsalves/Cardoza
Minnia Rogers/Gonsalves/Moitoza
Annie Rogers/Gonsalves/Ashadino
Helen Rogers/Gonsalves/Lesh
Elsie Rogers/Gonsalves /Bewall
Joseph Gonsalves/Rogers
Albert (Bert) Gonsalves/Rogers
Bill Gonsalves/Rogers
Jack Gonsalves/Rogers
Manuel Gonsalves/Rogers
Emma Rogers/Gonsalves/Martin
Henry Rogers/Gonsalves
Katherine Gonsalves
Isabel Rogers/Gonsalves/Frances
Frank Gonsalves/Rogers

The above siblings were all I have found, the others may have died at birth or in early childhood. The obit for Adelines father Manuel Gonsalves read "Father of 24 Dies in Hayward".

Anyone having any information please get in touch with me.
