Hello, I am looking for any family trees for a Joseph A. Fernandez: born Dec 1830 Spain. He arrived in New York 1846. He married Catherine Mills from United Kingdom. It has always been told me that they came from the Castile area? I know they were fair in skin, hair and eyes.
I know of no parents, siblings or anything about where he came from other than the story of Castilian Spanish...
Their children are as follows: Joseph Nicholaus Fernandez 1854 – 1902 Jennie E. Fernandez 1857 – Thomas Mills Fernandez 1858 – 1943 Leon D. Fernandez 1868 – 1943 William T. Fernandez 1872 – George Washington Fernandez 1874 – 1908
Perhaps his sons were named for some of his brothers or father? Any help or ideas are welcome.Thank you so much, Deana Samuel-Scott in California USA
