Tello and Cabralle family search

edited December 1969 in Family and Friends
hi my name is Robin...my grandparents and great grandfather came from Porto Santo....the quota was full in America...early 1900's so they went to Hawaii...then onto Oakland CA...There are two family names........my grandfather was Tom Tello and he married Helen Cabralle.( hopefully spelled correctly but not sure.) I know that their uncle owned an embroidery factory there that his son Nicholas inherited...and perhaps sold? If anyone knows of my family, I would love to hear about them! All the best to all of you in your search!
