Fernandez/DePonte(s) or DePante or Rodrigues

edited December 1969 in Family and Friends

I am looking to find relatives or any info. Here's what I've gathered so far. My ggrandparents are from Madiera and immigrated to HI (Honolulu, 1890?) Ggfather, Manual Fernandez b, 1864-65 and ggmother Isabella de Pante (several spellings...de Pante, DePonte and on 1 of the marriage information it list her maiden name as Rodrigues) b. 1871-1873, They had 10 children (all born in HI), Manual B, b. July 1893, set of twins-Mary, b. 1894 (married Jacintho De Rego, Apr. 1912), Joseph Birdie, (my grandfather) b. 1984 (married Rose Lenore Luis, Jan 1922), Carrie B, b. 1896 (married Sanford Blake, Sep 1920), Rose b. 1899 (married Joaquin Adric, Jul 1916), William, b. 1904, Julia, b. 1906 (married to Bill (William) Pratcher), set of triplettes-Antonio, b. 1909, Isabella, b. 1909 and Frank, b. 1909.
The 1910 & 1920 census shows the family in Honolulu on Old Pauoa Rd and in 1920 & 1930 living on Booth Rd. In 1930 my ggfather Manual is not listed on the census. Have not been able to find what happened to him nor are there any ship records, death cert's, marriage, birth info (where in Madeira are they from) or if my ggrandparents had any siblings.
My father tells me that my ggfather had cousins, Maxie Fernandez and possibly Charlie Fernandez but can't confirm.
Hope this peaks some interest and I'm able to piece some information together. Sincerely, iva, kiterbabe@hotmail.com
