Hi,
I have info on the husband and family of Isabel Carmen DelGado, or as you have her listed, Carmen Isabel. She was the daughter of Diego and Rosa DelGado.
What is the correct spelling - DelGado or Delgado?

My husband is a descendant of Charles A. MATHEWS, the father of Charles Sydney MATHEWS who married Carmen Isabel DELGADO. (I think the MATHEW family called her Isabel. Sometimes you may see his last name spelled MATTHEWS.

Charles Sydney (Sidney) MATHEWS, b. March 10, 1894, Key West, Monroe, FL; d. JAN 1965 FL. He and Carmen Isabel had a son named Sidney E. MATHEWS. (I am not sure which spelling for Sidney. His draft registration card says Chas. Sidney MATHEWS, and his death record says Charles Sydney MATHEWS. I met Sidney one time when he came to visit my in-laws.

Charles A. MATHEWS, b. June 1869, married Clara Isobel SAUNDERS, abt. 1893 in Key West. Her parents were Joseph Henry SAUNDERS and Ellen Mary RUSSELL.
Charles A. MATHEWS' father was from Portugal or Canary Islands, according to the census records. His name was Antonio MATHEWS. Antonio married Margaret SHAW in Florida.
I know Charles A. MATHEWS and his wife Clara lived at 526 Grinnell St. in Key West.

My mother-in-law's mother was Ruth Nellie MATHEWS,(the sister of Charles Sidney MATHEWS) who married George Washington FISHER. She moved up to New York and then New Jersey, after her marriage. They were married a week after George came to visit Ruth in Key West, FL. This was after several years of writing pen pal letters to each other. His mother had been on a boat that got caught on a reef or was shipwrecked, and she ended up staying at one of Ruth's aunt's house. They met, and she asked if Ruth would like to write to her son, about the same age. Pretty neat story. There was a write-up in the Key West paper about it a week after they were married.
