I am researching the Podesta and Thompson families from Gibraltar that immigrated to the United States. I most interested in Maria (Torres) Podesta (My great gramdmother and husband of Joseph (Jose) Podesta. They had 10 children - all born in Gibraltar:
Joseph (Jose) born 7/4/1880
Almando born 10/6/1882
Alexander born 6/19/1885
Albert born 8/12/1887
Maria born 9/8/1889
Frederick born 10/15/1890
Victoria born 7/19/1893 married Emidio Mazzuca
Luisa born 4/12/1895
Vicente born 8/1/1897
Miguel born 5/31/1899
With the exception of Joseph, Almando and Albert, they immigrated to the U. S. and settled in Pottsville, PA.

My grandmother (Maria (Torres) Podesta) had a sister named Catherine and she married Robert Thompson, They had a son named William (born abt 1870)and they had 9 children:
Robert born 1890 and married Valie Hirleman
Louis born about 1894
Catherine "Katie" born about 1896 and married John McCornick
Victoria born about 1898 & Peter born abt 1908
Mary - born about 1900 & Joseph born abt 1913
