Moniz - Portugal/Hawaii/California

  of 130

I am seeking information regarding my Moniz line which migrated from Portugal to Hawaii and then some to the Bay Area.

My GGGrandparents were Antonio Moniz and Margarita De Jesus. Both were born in Portugal. Antonio and Margarita had five children: Manuel; Joseph Sr. born August 2, 1877 in Sao Miguel, Portugal; George born 1882 in Hawaii; Mary born September 23, 1885 and Emilia.

Joseph Moniz, Sr. is my GGrandfather. Joseph's first wife was Helen Estrella Nobriga, also known as Maria de Estrela Norbriga. Helen died giving birth to my Grandfather Manuel Moniz on November 2, 1899, in Honakaa, Hawaii.

Joseph Moniz, Sr. second wife was Mary Moniz. Joseph and Mary had 12 children: Joseph born June 9, 1905; John born June 8, 1906; Willie born July 31, 1907; Alfred born January 1, 1909; Margaret born November 19, 1911; Daniel born August 5, 1913; Ernest born December 13, 1915; Violet born August 25, 1916; Henry born September 24, 1918; Albert born April 5, 1919; Florence born February 12, 1920 and Helen born June 4, 1923.

Manuel Moniz was my Grandfather. Manuel married Mary Gouveia. Mary was born October 31, 1909, in Honakaa, Hawaii. Mary's parents were Manuel Bento Gouveia and Mary Castro.

Any help would be appreciated. Thank you for your time.
