Re: CAMACHO - Madeira Island, Portugal
Among the first immigrants to the Hawaiian
Islands in 1879 was a Joao Fernandes Camacho
of Santo Antonio Parish, Funchal, Madeira.
He was married to Maria Augusta da Silva of
the same parish.Joao's parents were Paulo
Fernandes Camacho and Joaquina Rosa.Maria's
family were originally from Estreito de
Camara de Lobos and her parents were Manuel
Pinto da Silva and Sofia Augusta de Jesus.
A rather large family exists in Hawaii today.
