James, don't know if this helps, but you might find it of interest. My grandfather was Bartholmew Correia born on the Island of Brava, Cape Verde Islands, August 24, 1872. He was one of seven children: John, Marianne, Minne, Joaquin, Mary and Benjamin. He married Maria Rose Reis, born February 20, 1889, St. Michaels, Azores. They immigrated to the US, not sure when, and settled in East Fairhaven, MA. I believe my G.Grandfather was a John Joseph Correia or Corea', born in about 1842, but not sure of the location Through family information I'm trying to find out if he is Joseph Corrie, who was a seaman, born in New York and under the "Act for the relief and protection of American Seaman," became a US citizen through the District Norfolk & Portsmouth, VA on April 29, 1868.
