Anna deJesus Gomes


1850-1923

My great grandmother, Anna Gomes, was born in the town of Fazenda, Lajes, on the island of Flores in the Azores on Friday, April 10,1852. Her parents were Joao Furtatdo Gomes and Catarina deJesus Triguerio. Anna was baptized in the parish church, Nossa Senhora dos Rosario. She was one of fourteen children.
Anna sailed to America on the ship Amizade on July 12,1873. She arrived in the Port of Boston, Massachusetts and traveled to New Bedford, Massachusetts where she made her home. She worked as a seamstress, fashioning garments using the skills taught to her by her mother in the Azores. Sometime about 1879, Anna married a young farmer, Manuel Bettencourt Silva, also a recent immigrant from the Azorean island of Sao Jorge.
Anna was now a farmer's wife. They spent the first years of their marriage on a farm in Portsmouth, Rhode Island. They were living there and appear on the 1880 census of that town. By 1883 they had moved to South Dartmouth, Massachusetts and became the parents of four daughters, Isabelle, Margarida, Mary and Anna. Their oldest child, Isabelle, contracted diptheria and died at an early age.
Anna and Manuel and their family moved to East Providence, Rhode Islans about 1886. It was there Anna taught her daughters to sew and crochet, and to cook the delicious foods of the Azores.She took them to Mass and taught them the religious values handed down to her from generations of her Catholic ancestors. Anna saw to it that her girls studied well to learn the English language and to excel in their schoolwork. Music filled the house. Her daughters learned to play the piano in the parlor.
The girls grew into lovely young women. They married, but did not go far from home. Each young family was provided a tenement for their own growing families. Anna became the proud grandmother of five grandchildren. She lived for many years surrounded by her loving family.Anna died on October 26, 1923 at 73 years of age. She is buried with with her husband Manuel and her two daughters, Margarida and Anna in Saint Francis Cemetery in Pawtucket, Rhode Island.
