I am researching John Fitzgerald who was born about 1850 in England and married Adele Daminani in Duval Florida in 1873
He was a listed as a seaman, captain in a couple of census records.
There were two John Fitzgeralds in Jacksonville, Florida in 1880 ages 33 and 34. One b. NH parents b. Irl. wife Italy, 2 sons Ed and Joe age 8 and 5.
Other b. Eng. parents b. Eng. wife b. Italy 2 sons Edward and John Joseph ages 6 and 4. The two wives names were Adele and Della.Both captains of boats.
Do you think they are separate people? I am inclined to think they are the same.
