My name is Karen Cabrera. I'm writing in behalf of my dear friend Jose Manuel Diaz de Teran, a descendent from the Minorcans that labored the indigo fields in New Smyrna. Unfortunately, my friend lives in Spain, doesn't speak English, and it's difficult for him to further his search. I have done extensive research in the Historical Society of St. Augustine, St. Ambrose Church, the Cathedral Basilica of St. Augustine (As well as many sources in Spain). What we are looking for is not there. I came across this incredible website and decided to ask for help.
My friend and I would like to find information regarding the following:
-the ancestors of Juana Estefanopoli, daughter of Cristobal Estefanopoli, who married Manuel Vazquez Lopez in St. Augustine on January 7, 1802. She may have been a member of the Orthodox church before her marriage.
-any children born of the abovementioned marriage
-the manner and/or cause of death of Jose Vazquez Lopez, Manuel's brother, who was in the army and died on September 25, 1796. We have been unable to locate his death record.
Any information on this regard would be greatly appreciated.
