|I am researching the Nunes family. Manuel Nunes was born April 10, 1810 in Agua de Pena, Funchal, Madeira, Portugal. I found information identifing his parents as Manuel Nunes and Simoa Joquina. Manuel married Maria Marques or Mary Marks/Marquis. I was told by a gentleman from Madeira that the correct Portuguese spelling would be Marques as opposed to Marquis. The only emmigration information I could find on them, and I am not 100% sure it is correct, is that Manuel, Mary, and daughter Mary came to the US in 1849 on the H. Trowbridge, Trinidad to New York, arrived July 26, 1849. |
I am also researching the Gaines, McDonald, McDowell, Lynn, Cecil, and Austin familys. I also have a lot of info on the Seela - Seely - Seeley family included.
