I am looking for relatives of Francisco Vieira Mello (deMello)born 3/18/1859 in Lajes, Pico. From conversations with a cousin I understand that his father had gone to the California goldfields and then sent for his sons to come. I was told that my grandfather and two of his brothers traveled to California. My grandfather stayed but his two brothers went to Eastern U.S. Catarina Xavier of Silveira, Pico was my grandmother. I think Francisco's father was also named Francisco Vieira.
