MY GREAT GRANDMOTHER WAS MARIE ELIZABETH
FONTES OR FONTZ. SHE CAME EITHER FROM BRAZIL OR THE AZORES TO NEW BEDFORD AND THEN TO NORTHERN CALIFORNIA. I HAVE HER DEATH AT 1932, MY MOTHER BELIEVES SHE WAS ONLY IN HER FORTIES BUT HAD BEEN BEDRIDDEN FOR AWHILE WITH A PAINFUL DISEASE (PERHAPS JOSEPHS DISEASE). SHE WAS MARRIED TO MANUEL DEPORTO WHO CHANGED HIS NAME TO SILVA. HE WAS FROM THE AZORES AND I HAVE HIS BIRTH AT 1848 AND HIS DEATH AT 1942 IN WOODLAND, CALIFORNIA. THEIR CHILDREN WERE DOMINIC, FRANK EDWARD, MANUEL, ROSE, MARIE, IMELDA, AND MARJORIE. SOME OF THE CHILDREN USED THE NAME SILVA AND SOME DEPORTO. THERE MAY BE RELATIVES STILL IN NEW BEDFORD. ANY INFORMATION WOULD BE HELPFUL.
