Re: MANUEL TOMAS - Azore Islands
My Great Grandfather was Alexander Borges Thomas (Tomas).He was born in the Azores on 10 March 1886 and came to America in 1908.He settled in the Modesto area, not far from Oakland, California.
I have been told that he had a brother by the name of Manuel, but he used the last name of Coelho for some reason.
I am not sure if this is helpful, but I thought I would write anyway.
