unfortunately i have bits and pieces, some might help, my grandfather manuel Canha, some were decanha, but graqndpa changed his name to King, cuz he could not read, or spell his name, he came with his two sons, William, and Mannuel,
"Billy King (Canha)was Chief of Police, in Tisbury, Vineyard
Haven, came from the azores. then he married Elizabeth
DeCosta, from medeira islands? they had Elizabeth King, married to Richard Furtado ect. grandpa was a mason, all around the island of marthas vineyard you will see his work
He had made a statue , with his arch work of white stone of
the Virgin mary, you will see that at the Catholic Church, in Vineyard Haven. There were Costa, Decosta, Decanha, Canha,Maciels, Medeiras, Duarts, Furtados'.
