Hello.I haven't researched my friend's PACHECO / MOURA family tree in well over a year.This morning I decided to go check out the archives of the AZORES Boards to see if anything new has been posted.
I noticed that there have really not been any postings about the PACHECO surname from the AZORES (Sao Miguel) in almost 2 years !
I was wondering if anyone had come across any new information.Or, I was wondering if researchers wanted to post a brief summary of the PACHECO family you are researching, so that we can all compare notes with each other !
I am looking for more information on Joseph PACHECO and Jacintha de Jesus COSTA in the village of Sao Roque, Sao Miguel, Azores !
The onlything I know about them is that they had a son, Antonio PACHECO, born anywhere around 1885, who came to the U.S. around 1905, and settled in Cambridge, MA.
I cannot find any information on Antonio before he married in Cambridge, MA, to Elise "Elsie" MOURA.So, I don't know if he had siblings.I don't know who his contact was when he arrived in Massachusetts.And, I don't know if he had relatives in Massachusetts.
He was killed in a car accident in 1928 in Taunton, MA, and left a widow, pregnant with twin boys and with 5 young children !
Betty(near Lowell, MA, USA)
P.S.More information is posted in the archives of this Board.
P.S. 2Mrs. Elsie PACHECO lost the twin boys before they reached Age 2, and had already lost other children, but she did raise 5 to adulthood(3 are still living).
She told her grandchildren stories about her family, but didn't really discuss her late husband's family - so no PACHECO family stories came down to them.
P.S. 3There were other PACHECO families living in Cambridge, MA, at the same time they did.But, my friend, Bob, has no knowledge of them being related to him !
