Antonio Jose de Almeida , Tuolomne & Berkeley CA
I am trying to establish contact with the descendents or relatives of Antonio (1867 - 1927), my great uncle who arrived in the US from the Azores in 1886 and lived for many years in Berkeley, CA.
Two of his brothers also came to CA from the Azores: Frank Joseph Almeida(1863-1936)who settled in Mendocino CA and Joseph F. Pimental (1871 -1961)who resided in Berkeley CA. Another brother, a Vieira, went from the Azores to RI (his son, Alvaro E Vieira, went down with the USS Arizona in Pearl Harbor on Dec 7, 1941. One more of the brothers, my grandfather, settled in Hawaii: Joseph Vierra (1856 - 1937) of Hilo.
