Hi there! i see that your message was posted quite a while ago, and you may have more information now than you did then. I do not recognize any of the names in your posting, however, my great grandmother is an Alves and she also came from the Azores... Her name was Adelina (Adeline) Alves. I am not sure what he husbands name was, as I have never met him he passes either while i was very young or before i was born, I could find out though! Her daughter Rita is my grandmother, She went on to Marry an Estabrook, My mother is a Holmes, which is where i got my name brooke holmes, from my father. My great nana had many other children, lorraine, eugene (still an alves), tony (also alves) (short for either antonio or anthony?), angie, joseph (still Alves), and there was one other who passed away at a young age. There may be other children but I cannot recall at the moment. Please let me know if there is any other information you know or if there is a connection here!!
