Lucianno Dias was by Great Great Grandfather on my Mother’s side.

He was born on January 24, 1875 in Faial, Azores, Portugal to Thomas Dias and Maria (Bettencourt) Dias.

On the 5th of April 1890 at the age of 15 he immigrated to the United State aboard the Kennard arriving in the Port of Boston.

    Very interested to read this. My great grand-aunt and her family immigrated to the USA from England in 1900, I always think it must have been a huge adventure for them.

      I can’t imagine getting on a ship by yourself at the age of 15 and heading to a new country. Of course that was a long time ago and 15 then was different then 15 today.

    I notice that two of Lucianno’s brothers have middle initial “L” and the third is Thomas Lawrence. Do you know if all the brothers had Lawrence as a middle name? If so, it might be a clue to either their paternal or maternal grandfather’s name???
    Also, do you know if Mary D Pacheco was Lucianno and Julia’s daughter? Seems likely, since their names are on the same headstone. It also appears that, perhaps, Lucille M Pacheco was their unmarried daughter???

      Yes all there middle names were Lawrence and Mary was Lucianno and Julia’s oldest child. I actually haven’t found anything yet on Lucille I would assume she is Mary and Joseph’s daughter but haven’t found the documentation yet.

      I was just digging a little deeper. She may have been their daughter in-law.
