Actually...I was told that Joseph DeSoto came over from Portugal.:)
We don't have a birthdate or deathdate for him unfortunatly.If anyone has any links to
More info: Joseph and Catherine had a Son named Thomas B DeSoto who was born Jan 17th 1879 in NY.
My late grandmother, Roslyn DeSoto Folk (dauther of Thomas B) used to tell me stories when I was a child about Hernando DeSoto.Stories might be made up, or unfounded, but I'd like to know either way :)
If anyone has any info on my Great Great Grandfather....please let Lisa and I know (Lisa posted above, is my wife).
