Looking for info on my ancestors. My great-grandfather was Joao Pedro Tavares. He was born in the village of Agua de Pau on the island of St. Michael, Azores on June 12, 1873. His father's name was Jose Pedro Tavares. His mother's name was Elena Ignocencia do Coracao de Jesus. He had three brothers. Pedro Tavares, who resided in Bridgewater, Massachusetts, and Jose and Serafim Tavares who stayed in the Azores. He immigrated to Fall River, Massachusetts via Ellis Island approximately 1893. He Married Maria Pereira who he met in Fall River. She was born in Warwick, Bermuda. They had 8 children, including my grandfather,Alfred Tavares, who died when my dad was 2 years old. The only info I have is mostly from obituaries, and a baptisimal record from the Azores. Please email me if you have any further info. Thank you!
