I am trying to find information on John Garcia Smith, born about 1835 in the Azores. John came to the US before 1863 and lived in the Centerville, CA, area and married Maria Emelin. They moved to Hayward, CA, before 1880 where he had a ranch in the Kelly Hill area. John and Mary had 9 children, Mary (Married John Correia Silva), Emma (Married John Luiz Silva), Nora (Married Joseph Borges), John (Married Elsie Garcia Borba), Manuel (Married Josephine Goulart), Anna (Married Joaquin Stanton), Louisa (Married Jack Faria), Frank (Married Mary Garcia Borba), and Minnie (Married Joseph Santos). Please let me know if you think we might have a connection.
