My great grandmother was from Sao Miguel and lived in New Bedford. I don't know where in Sao Miguel she came from. Her name was Obelina L. Souza. Her parents were Frank and Maria Souza. Obelina came to US in 1911 with her husband, Manuel Almeida and their daughter, Maria Rosario Almeida. Maria might have been born in Lagoa, but I'm not sure. I have another Souza line. Margarida Souza married Antonio Tavares. They had a son Antonio Tavares who came to US in 1905. He married Maria Rosario Almeida around 1911. Let me know if any of this matches or not.
