Looking for more about George Henry from Faial Islands

Looking for more about George Henry from Faial Islands

I'm trying to research more about George Henry from the Faial Islands. He supposed arrived in the US around 1857 and was born around 1850. I can't find any records until 1880 after he was already married to Rachel Virginia Tryon (not completely substantiated yet, but definitely married to a rachel or rachael). Rumors in my family (again, no citations) is that George Henry isn't his original name and it was something along the lines of dutragulark. However, I couldn't find anything about that name, but was finding names from the Azores of "Dutra Goulart" as a last name. However, with no first name, I'm stuck. I can't find records of when he arrived so I can't find any info about parents or anything. If anyone has any tips or info, that'd be appreciated. Thanks.

Hello,

I just saw your posting re George Henry, and I have been having the same problem with him. My brother-in-law is a descendant of George, and I am researching his family. I know that George served in the Civil War, but have no idea what the circumstances are surrounding his immigration from Faial. ALso, have you had any luck tracing back Rachel Virginia Tryon's family? They seem to be connected to the Tryon's of Connecticut, but I am not sure how accurate any of this information is.

Good luck with it all!
