Ron, I think I have written to you before.I show the following:
Joseph Ernesto Santo 1870-1944 (Azores) m. Maria de Jesus Soares (1875-1915) b. Lajes, Pico, Azores, Portugal
Joseph was a Day Laborer, Shovel Maker, Farmer.
Joseph's parents:Ildefonse Santo & Rita Amaral
Joseph & Maria used the name da Silva, da Santo, sometimes used Silva and used Santo.Later on about 1910, they used primarily Santo.You are right, there are many Jose or Josephs that have been married to Maria Jesus.Very common names. However, I cannot for the life of me find a link to Joseph Silva/Santo.I wish I had a certain town or island to start.I guess I need to go to a Mormon library.
