Looking for JOHN FERREIRA & GUILLIMINE FREITAS CORREIA came to Hawaii about 1895, found in Hawaii on the 1900 census.Oakland,California about 1901 - 1902.
They had the following children:
Manuel F. Ferreiraabt. 1882 Portugal Joseph Ferreira abt. 1888 Portugal Mary F. Ferreira August 8, 1895 Koloa, Kauai, Hawaii Antonio Ferreira abt. 1898 Anna Ferreira abt. 1900 Joseph F. Ferreira January 18, 1903, Oakland, CA Emma F. Ferreira March 7, 1906, Oakland, CA
MARY F. FERREIRA was my great grandmother she married FRANK JOHN AVELAR, January 31, 1909, in Oakland, CA.At some point Mary's parents changed there last name to Avelar, for reasons unknown.
I have documents with the spelling of "Avelar" as Avilar, Avillar, Avellar.
If any of this sounds familar to anyone please contact me.
