They are my Great Great Grandparents on my Mother’s side. The parents of Olive Dias Cunha.
Lucinnie was born on Jan. 24, 1875 in Portugal. On April 5, 1890 at the age of 15 he landed in the port of Boston on a ship named the Kennard. The ship had sailed from Faial da Terra, Azores, Portugal. The ship log lists him as a laborer and as being in the forward compartment. He had one bag with him. His date of death is unknown at this time.
Julia was born in 1879. It is unclear as to wether or not Brazil is the correct last name. I have several documents that show different things, but are all her. I believe that she also came from Portugal. As the 1910 and 1930 census list her from the Azores. She died sometime between the 1930 census and the 1940 census.
Lucinne and Julia married on Nov. 27, 1895. I have found the following children:
Mary Dias 1897 -?
Olga Dias 1899 – July 1, 1913 (lepto-meningitis) death certificate states there was a surgery on June 16, 1913.
Lucennie Dias 1903 -?
Olive Dias July 10, 1905 – March 24, 1986 (my Great Grandmother)
Charles Lawrence Dias April 5, 1907 -1975
Marguerite Dias May 10, 1910 – Feb. 13, 1915 (lobar pneumonia)
Hilda Dias 1913 – Nov. 7, 1914 at 4pm (pneumonia)
Olga Dias 1916 -?
Hilda Dias 1919 -2001
Pricilla Dias 1924 -?
It was common practice to name children after other children that had passed back in this time.
If I can get my computer to work today I will upload all related documents I have.
