Joao Fernandes,Camacho and his wife Maria Augusta da Silva came to Hawaii on the Ravenscrag. They first worked at Kohala Sugar on the Island of Hawaii and later moved to Oahu working at Wailua Sugar. Children of Joao and Maria born in Hawaii included John, Manuel, Clemente, Joaquin, Maria Sophia and Frank. My grandfather Manuel Fernandes Camacho married Annie de Jesus whose family had also come to Hawaii on Ravenscrag. Both Manuel and Annie were born in Kohala and moved to Oahu with their families. Manuel worked at Wailua Sugar for many years becoming Head Luna about the time I was born. John, Mary, George, Bill, and Edward were children of Manuel and Annie. My father George left the plantation to become an apprentice machinist at Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard. Fifty three years later, I returned to Pearl Harbor Naval Shipyard as its Commander and was promoted to the rank of Rear Admiral. The voyage from Maderira was long and the work we found was hard, but the adventure continues.
