Richard, It looks like we are the only ones searching FONTES from Sao Miguel Island. My husband's great-grandmother's name was Maria E. FONTES (b. 10 aug 1894 in Hilo, Hawaii, Hawaii/d. 12 jun 1977 in San Jose, Santa Clara, CA.). Maria was the daughter of Antonio FONTES and Maria RAPOSA. (Antonio was b. 1872, Conceicao,, Sao Miguel Isl., Portugal/m. 1893, Hilo, Hawaii, Hawaii.) Antonio's parents were Antonio DeFONTES and Jacinta ROSA. (Antonio was b. 1834,,San Jose, Ponta Delgada, Portugal). Antonio's parents were Antonio DeFONTES and Maria DaPAIXAO. (Antonio was b. abt 1812/d. bef. 1883).
I hope that my information is at all helpful to you. Please let me know if you have any helpful hints for me. I would appreciate anything! I am new to Portuguese geneaology. Thank you so much,
Marie Mason
