NEW UPDATE as of August 1999:

I am looking for information on JAKENA BAPTISTA CORREIA. Not sure about her date of birth I have anything from 1844 to 1851. She married Emmanuel Ferriera Lomelino Nov 3, 1870 and died April 25, 1932. There is a story that she came to the U.S. when she was about 8 years old. She was left in Madeira when her parents came to the U.S. because she was ill and not expected to live. The captain of the ship refused to allow her aboard because she was sick, claiming her illness would cause the ship to be destroyed by a whale. She was probably left in Madeira with a relative possibly her older brother LUIS as he did not come to the U.S. She did come later, (don't know who she came with) and may have gone to Brazil first. She came about 1859 to the U.S. and settled first in Naples, IL. Her family is believed to have been fishermen and wine makers. She had one other brother EMMANUEL who came to the U.S. Would appreciate any information.
