Very interested in finding out about 'Pereira' from St Miguels Azores Portugal who settled in Fall River. Some used Damaz or Damos or Damazo(spelled many different ways) as a middle or last name. Especially interested in Antonio Pereira Damos(Damazo on his tombstone in Notre Dame Cemetery) born in 1895 and dies in 1955. He played soccer for the Colonial Team sponsored by Colonial Beverage of Fall River, his soocer name was Brock Perry. His family lived around Pine St, Plain St and Tremont St area. He had 2 sons Antone who died arounf 21 yes of age and James Pereira born in 1918 and died in 1981 who lived in Westport + Tiverton most of his adult life he was a musician whho went by the name Jimmie Brock,he used to paly at the Hi-Way Casino in Westport he had his own orchestra and playedd a lot at Lincoln Park and at the Pocasset Country Club in RI, he also played a lot with Al Rainone's band. Jimmie Brock is my children's grandfather. Would like any + all information about this family. They are difficult to research. Thank You
