Hernandez in New Hampshire NH
I would love to find out about my grandfather’s family – Hernandez.My great-great-grandfather Melquedes Hernandez came to this country sometime around the turn of the last century.He married my great-great-grandmother on 12/16/1916 – I think probably in Maine.I don’t know when he came or how he came to the US, but he was born 5/13/1876 in Madrid, Spain and died 5/23/1929 in New Hampshire.Any local records I’ve found have his first AND last name grossly misspelled, because Hernandez was a very foreign/strange name for the folks in this area at that time.
I heard he had a sister named Violet who also came to the states.He might have had other siblings.
I also know that he was a master mandolin crafter – before he came to the states.
If anyone has any information on my family, I would greatly appreciated it.
