I need a lookup in Hillsborough County records for Mateo Salgado, born 1873 in Key West. He possibly died in the Tampa area.

Mateo was the son of Jose Salgado and Rosario Pedrero, who came to Key West from Cuba between 1870 and 1874. A brother of Mateo's was Marcelino Salgado.

Mateo married Rosa PEREZ, dau. of Salumio and Luz (maiden name unknown) Perez, who came to Key West about 1879.

I am also looking for descendants of Jose "Joe" Torano born 1898 who died in Hillsborough County, Florida about 1978 or so. He was my wife's grand-uncle, brother of Armando Torano. Their parents were Jose Torano and Rita Margaret ORTIZ.

I believe members of these Perez, Salgado and Torano families moved from both Cuba and Key West, FL to Tampa by the 1930's. Mateo was a relatively young man at the time of his death, and died we believe between 1910 and 1940 either in Tampa or Key West. Any help you can give will be greatly appreciated!!

Thank you,

Willie Smith
