About Manuel Jose CARVALHO

Family notes, stories --

Alene Lionberger (DeLaura), daughter of Emilia and Victor DeLaura, wrote --

[Mother Emilia and her brothers] "...lived near a Rocha (rock bound coast - cliff) [on Santa Maria Island]... She probably came from a poorer family than Pa's... [Emilia's] brothers did get to come to America, they lived in the Fairhaven... area -- were farmers... They did not like Pa too well, as I recall... when I came to Rochester [~ 1930s?]... I visited them often and spoke Portuguese with them (at my request)."

Official records --

1906, age 19, Immigration of Manuel from Azore Islands to Massachusetts

In a 1930 Census of Fairhaven, Manuel and family live on a farm on New Boston Road. Manuel is 42. He owns the house, worth $10,000. He and his parents were born in the Azore Islands, and Manuel immigrated in 1906.

Wife Emilia does not speak English. She and her parents were also born in the Azores. She immigrated in 1914. Manuel and Emilia were married in about 1911. [This suggests that Manuel went back to the Azores to get married.]

Their children, all born in Massachusetts, were: Manuel, age 15; Mary, age 13; Emilia, 12; and Eugenia, 8.

A 1940 Census lists the family at 42 New Boston Road. "Manuel J." is now 52, and unable to work. All the children in the household are unmarried. Son "Manuel J. Jr." is 24 and working as a farmer. Daughter Mary is 22 and unable to work. Daughter Emily, 21, sews garments. Eugenia is not listed.

Cemetery records indicate that Manuel died the next year -- in 1941.

Note that in city directories for Fairhaven, the last entry for "...Manuel J (Amelia) farmer..." is in 1940
