I'm currently looking for any information about a branch of the Gomes family that emmigrated from the Lisbon area to Bristol, Rhode Island around 1915-16.
I believe my father's paternal grandparents were Joseph A. Gomes (1873 - 1938) and Maria C. Alves (1877 - 1941) from the Lisbon area. They had nine children, most of whom settled in Bristol, RI:
Amadeu "Jack" Gomes (1912 - 1976) married Mary Te[i]xeira James A. Gomes (1911 - 1982) married Mary Soares Mary P. Gomes (1909 - 2000) never married Cedalia G. "Kate" Gomes married Bonafacio Luiz William A. Gomes (1905 - 1949) Antonio A. Gomes -- unknown Joseph A. Gomes -- unknown Deolinda Gomes married Abilio Almeida Demetilia Gomes -- unknown
Please let me know if you have any information on this branch of the Gomes family.
