The farther back we go it is even more difficult to pull out the stories of our female ancestors. I know that Branca was married to Rui Lopes in Lisboa, Portugal. Later she married Joao(?) Beliago.
What isn’t said here is that her first husband, Rui Lopes, was one of the early settlers on the island of Sao Miguel in the Azores. So, that would make Branca one of the first women to settle there as well.

Marthe is my great great grandmother. She was born in the village of Ogeu les bains in France.
One thing I have found interesting about researching French women is that as early as 1800 they all have occupations listed in official records. It’s something I am not used to seeing in other localities until 1900. In this case, Marthe was a cultivatrice, or farmer. Her husband was as well.
Marthe’s life was a short one. She died at the age of 29.
