I have been working on my son in-law's family line. His great-grandfather, Manuel Victor (de silva) Fagundes was born in Urzelina, Sao Jorge, Azores. He came to the us about 1888 and settled in Marin county, CA. His wife was Rosa Joaquina Freitas de Borba, also born in Urzelina. They both died in San Rafael, Marin county. When Manuel came to the US, his surname was de Silva. But he changed his name to his mother's maiden name. She was Marianna Fagundes. She died 1912 in San Rafael. I am hoping to find more information about them. Rosa's parents were Antonio M. de Borba and Martha Joaquina Freitas.
I have recently ordered a film from SLC Family History Library on "Ilha de Sao Jorge" but it is in Portugese and am hoping to find someone to help me translate.
Manuel's son, Manuel Joseph Fagundes married Angela Madeline Teixeira. She was from Napa.
Hope this helps you.
